something as well. Thanks for listening, but if you

Their longtime project Buttercup produced the stellar fifth episode of "The 180" way

|Garrett T. Capps - The 180
The one-hundred and eighth installment of "The 180"
is hosted by San Antonio based, singer, songwriter, and producer
Garrett T. Capps. Space country is his game, and we at MFL love that!
We've been listening to Garrett for a few years here in SA,
but Garrett's new album 'In the Shadows (Again)' is bound to turn
some heads outside of the state. A country rock album so spacey that he
even released an ambient version of it. We're happy to have him
take over for a broadcast of "The 180"
First broadcast - August 25, 2018
|ELO All Night - Five Hours of Electric Light Orchestra
In honor of their first U.S. tour in over 35 years, we broadcast a special FIVE
HOUR show featuring the music of Jeff Lynne and Electric Light Orchestra.
In the end, five hours wasn't even enough "time" to play everything I wanted to. I wish I
would have had "time" to play more from the earlier albums, but I crammed in
as much as possible. A good cross section of album cuts and well known singles!
There are few bands I would dedicate a FIVE HOUR show, so I hope you enjoy
and get to listen to at least some of it, if not all of it!
First broadcast - August 4, 2018

songs from the seven albums he's released in the only the past three years. After
the projects of Sound Team and Sunset, he has set out as a solo artist, and has
released a strong body of work to date. A wonderful musical journey that
showcases one of world's most prolific and talented musicians, with
the man himself as the guide.

|Matt Bonner - The 180
The one-hundred and fifth installment of "The 180" is
hosted by broadcast announcer and former player for the San Antonio Spurs, Matt Bonner.
Ever since we heard of the Red Rocket's love of Indie Rock, MFL has been trying to
chase him down to produce his own broadcast of "The 180". Michael finally met up
with the Sandwich Hunter back in October at Low Country to see Juanita Stein perform
and planted that seed. After the 2017-2018 Spurs broadcast season ended, KRTU
interns Dominic and Constantine sat down with Matt in the KRTU studio, and got
him to chat about every song he compiled for his guest host appearance. A long-time coming.
