The Callout

I haven’t listened to it yet, but quite a few people have sent in this podcast from NPR titled “The Callout” and said it’s good:

‘Armageddon Massive’ Turns 20

Ethan Luck of The Dingees has posted up a podcast series talking about the band’s album, Armageddon Massive, as it turns twenty. He has on members of the band and the producer Steve Kravac.

As of today (3/24/18), our first album turns 20! The album was called ‘Armageddon Massive’ and we recorded it over the course of a month in fall of 1997 at Westbeach Studios in Hollywood, CA.
