SlapperCast Episode 60: Difficult Listening Hour (Video)

For the first time ever, a full SlapperCast episode on video! This first one was somewhat of an experiment—things like lighting, camera angles, and picture quality clearly need some work—but we’ll get better at this over time. It’s also still available as a regular podcast on all the same platforms you’ve been using heretofore.

This week on SlapperCast, we discuss life in the time of coronavirus, cover bands vs. tribute bands, progressive rock vs. metal, and line-up changes in famous bands.
