Marc with a C

Episode 25

This episode was recorded on January 16, 2017, on WPRK FM. Listen to the whole conversation in the player above, or click on the links below to go to a specific segment of the show!

I shouldn’t have been surprised. I had never met Marc, but I had been to his shows and listened to his music. Still, when someone is promoting new releases, reissues, upcoming shows, you would expect the conversation may go one way.

This is not the case with Marc with a C.

After meeting him in person, and hearing a story about how he finished a show after dislocating his kneecap on stage, you realize you’re not talking to what you may consider to be a typical musician.

Chronically gracious and generous with his time, Marc sat down at an old haunt of his – WPRK – and gives you a lot of things to think about (not unlike his music).

There are so many things to share, I’ll let him do the talking. You want more? Check out these links:
