Some Kind of Wonderful (w/Mark Farner Interview) - Grand Funk Railroad - Episode 516
"All the girls in the world beware!!!"
As a happenstance, our episode for the week of Memorial Day in the US brings us a classic from the kings of Assembly-Line Rock, Grand Funk Railroad, and we've got a riveting interview with Grand Funk guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Mark Farner! Also in this episode:
- The Mount Rushmore of Dad Bands
- The Shea Stadium record Grand Funk holds over the Beatles, and the time Led Zeppelin pulled the plug on them—literally!
- The magic and mystery of 432Hz tuning
- The WORST cover version of “Some Kind of Wonderful”
As always, leave us a review to help the show get in front of more folks, and connect with us for Shenanigans, merch, and more.
