    Episode 21: Lindsay Cates

    She’s been on the front lines of the record store business for over 20 years and still loves the thrill of helping people find their new favorite band. She’s a huge part of the long-time taste-making record store Stinkweeds that has always been a well curated and super hip place to find your next musical listening adventure. No wading through piles of crusty Engelbert Humperdink records here. She’s also a damn fine bass player laying down the low end for bands including Fatigo, Pick and Holler, Snow Songs and The Sunpunchers. Lindsay stopped by for a very cool conversation about the up’s and downs of the music industry, art and commerce, and maybe a few ghost stories too.

Musicians Guide to Everything

This podcast is a pleasure to listen to. Phoenix mainstays in the music scene, both here and nationally have a board range of local and beyond and banter in a way that’s poignant, informative, and funny. Being a long time member of the Tempe/Phoenix music scene myself I really love and truly relate to the history and experiences both host walk through on the show. This is a great and entertaining listen.
