Before heading to eastern Europe for a five-week tour, proto-punk and garage-rock pioneer Rob Lind of The Sonics came by the studio to talk about making music with his friends as a naive teen in the mid-'60s, with no idea of how iconic his band would become.

Don't forget to catch up on our past episodes on iTunes or Stitcher. We're on Spotify now, too, so it's never been so easy to go local. That sounded very ad-like. Sorry. Just listen to the podcast.
