UCW 319 ~ Up A Tree

What happens when a tree removal crew takes over next to the studio?  We get to know them, feed them, photograph and interview them of course!  Cirque has nothing on these guys.  We also meet ace Houston guitarist Paul Ramirez. Then Gabriela shares a soup recipe she learned in Mexico and we give a Netflix viewing tip. All this and new music from Jungle, Sigrid, Slightly Stoopid, Brandi Carlile, Sihasin, Rayland Baxter, Arthur Buck, Florence+The Machine, Jack White and many more… Music, Food, Friends, it’s UnderCurrents WEEKEND!
