From the first time I met Stacy and Ethan of Finer, at a battle of the bands around 2008, I knew I liked them.  I mean, how can you not?  They're smart, funny, talented, and two of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet.  This business of selling the house, quitting the job, and packing up to take the music on the road for a living though?  I don't think I can convey enough how much I respect the level of confidence, and courage, it must take to do that.  I mean, I've been doing this for seven years, and while I would love for a day of work to consist of something like doing a morning zoo broadcast at dawn, recording a podcast in the afternoon, schlepping around the city to catch bands seven nights a week, then getting home just in time for a late-night talk show for the insomniacs in the style of Bob Fass, I've never quite had the guts to give up that exciting career in the fast-paced world of computer programming that has kept a roof over my head for the last couple of decades. 

Stacy and Ethan, though?  They went out after it.  I caught up with them on a pass back through town for their third appearance here on the show, and of course, as they are apt to do, they brought along new musical friends to introduce all of you to (you'll meet California rocker's Gallo in next week's show).  So what's the skinny?  Is it surf and truf from room service and trashing hotel rooms with Katie Perry every night?  Or is it living off M&M's and sleeping in the trunk of the car?  Any regrets?  Any suggestions for other aspiring road warriors?  All these questions, and more, will be answered.
