This episode features part one of my conversation with Wanz.  We start off in the 1980's when we met at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA.   Hear about early bands, "black snow" and some story telling that only friends that have known each other for decades can share. It was a trip down memory lane for the me as Wanz shares stories about things that I had long forgotten.
