Keeping me going

Been a listener to E-town for years now, first on a local radio station and then online with podcasts when the station was bought by a “national conglomerate” and stopped carrying Etown.
With the pandemic and the loss of live music with friends and family this last year has been a tough one. This podcast brings back some of the joy of live shows and keeps my hopes going for days we can all be together again, sitting outside, and enjoying a concert together.
