This week’s broadcast: Chuck Prophet and CAKE
By Helen ~ March 27, 2012
In this week’s episode of eTown, we welcome back a talented musician and writer who’s been making music professionally for well over 25 years: Chuck Prophet. We love him here in eTown. He’s just brilliant; and he’s a great guy. I especially love his voice; very distinct sound – when you hear him you instantly know it’s him!
We’re also joined this week by one of my favorite American indie bands: CAKE. Not only do they have a terrific, dynamic, signature sound; they’re also totally environmentally and socially conscious people. They’re right on, outspoken, not afraid to take a stand over what they believe in, and they keep their fans informed about what’s going on in the world, what the band is passionate about, and how people can get involved as part of the solution to current pressing problems out there, if they want to. This is one of those shows that we keep hearing about from our listeners; a real ‘classic’ eTown, complete with a great E-Chievement Award story. Hope you’ll tune in.
