As we made note of earlier this year, Johnny Marr is gearing up to release his first ever solo album, The Messenger. The former Smiths guitarist is in promo mode leading up to the release in February. He recently did an interview with the BBC and a performance including his version of The Smiths’ classic “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want.”

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
