On Friday. April 12th, local band Erik and The Ear Pleasures stopped in our studio for their very first live radio session. Erik, Chris, Ethan, and Ross are a multifaceted group of young men who have a talent for bluegrass, as well as creating cross-genre mashups. While their musical styling, when described, sounds odd; all of their music is undeniably pleasing to the ears. Featured tracks include Give Me One Fat Booty and Fareway (it’s a family brand), a song written for Kaleidoquiz 2017.

Tune into the Basement and on 88.5 KURE Ames Alternative (or online) from 8-9p on Sunday, April 22nd for the whole interview, and those curiously delightful songs.

If you missed the live airing, we have the full interview available on our Soundcloud linked below.

Host: Karina Abbott
Producer: Jonathan Free
Technical Assistance: Carter Thornton, Sam Bias, Brenna O’Donoghue
