This week's guest is Jake Stein of the band WRNG HAUS from Portland, Oregon. He describes his music as sort of "groovy & catchy pop propelled by a rhythm section tight as synchronized swimmers."

By the sound of it Ray’s been running his podcast for the about last 9 years and is about 400 episodes deep now.
