We’re doin’ a little something different on today’s show. All the killer interstitial music you’ll hear, I’m talkin’ about the beats that intro and outro our segments, they’re select cuts off the new record from prolific Detroit producer Eddie Logix of the #CoOwnaz collective. It’s called Ohana and there’s a release party tonight with Eddie, as well as Peace to Mateo, Pig PenDial 81 and DTCHPLANES.

We’re kicking off the show with Detroit’s Brendan Patrick. He’s the subject of a documentary film about his life and work. We’ll speak with the artist, who re-taught himself how to paint after losing his sight, as well as Rob Cousineau, one of the filmmaker’s behind the doc titled Can’t See Sh*t.

Brendan’s work is on display this Saturday at When Visions Collide, an art event at the Tangent Gallery
