    Goodbye Friends, Jam On

    Goodbye Friends, Jam On

    Friends, after 13 incredibly fun years here on BTR, I’ve decided it’s time to pass on the torch of Jam Session. This will be my final episode. Thank you for tuning in over the years, sharing episodes and introducing friends to the show, and for your hugs, grooves and good vibes at shows and festivals. It’s been rad! This week’s episode features some of our most beloved songs over the years, including tracks I’ve insisted we play over and over, and ones you’ve told me you just can’t live without. It’s goodbye for now, but jam on forever. Peace and love.
