Show Description: 
The Shanty will be full of foot stompin', hootin' and hollerin' mostly "acoustified" Bluegrass, Folk, Country, Rock and Blues.

What bands could a listener expect to hear on the show? 
You can expect to hear bands like, The Devil Makes Three; The Steeldrivers; Steep Canyon Rangers; Greensky Bluegrass; Pokey Lafarge and the South City Three; The Band; John Prine and maybe even some Talking Heads.

What bands will a listener NEVER hear on the show?
You won't hear System of a Down or Metallica on the show. Unless they put out an unplugged album and even then it would be rare to hear those bands on the Shanty.

Favorite Beverage?
Frosty cold Beer. 

When did you become a DJ?
My tenure with KBUT began way back in April of 2013.

Hometown?
The Boston area is where I spent my early days. Scituate, Massachusetts is probably the closest thing to my hometown though. 

Random thought?
Did you know that in the thirteenth century Europeans used to baptize children with beer?
