The Music & Arts Guild Showcase, Episode 25 :: Michael Lipson

Hosted by James McGee 13 October, 2016

From an old converted barbershop inside the area’s largest all-nude strip club comes the twenty-fifth episode of The Music & Arts Guild Showcase with your host, James McGee.

AM1700 is joining forces with The Music & Arts Guild to form a supergroup not seen since The Birthday Party and members of Einsturzende Neubauten and Magazine teamed up to form Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Focusing on local music with weekly live, in-studio performances, the Music & Arts Guild Showcase aims to spotlight bands that are making great music in the area. James handcrafts each show by picking out only the best in local music.

In this week’s episode, live music is back on the menu as multi-instrumentalist Michael Lipson visits the studio to hang out with James, play a bunch of songs, and answer some trivia. Michael is a one man wrecking crew as he deftly uses technology to create a big sound. The highlight is when Michael creates a new theme song for the station off the top of his head and gives the world “The AM1700 Rap”.
