BCH Episode #145 - April 2024

In our March episode, we remember our friend Robbie Bowden who passed away last month. Robbie was a cherished music community member who helped make it what it is today and is deeply missed by all of us. We will reflect on his music and appearances on our show, including interviews, music from the String Bean String Band and Slats Klug albums, and some live recordings from our studio.

We also have an interview with JC Clements about her upcoming conference with Hoosier Original Music Association, Debra Bowden brings a story about the eclipse, and Pam Raider tells us about the upcoming school funding referendum.
