A Mellow Breather With Blue Dog Jam Host Nick Brunner



That’s the theme of this week’s Sound Advice.

Today’s expert music curator is CapRadio’s Nick Brunner. From revamping his Saturday evening show to hosting weekly concerts in West Sacramento to submitting track reviews for NPR, Brunner has had a busy summer.

And he imagines you have, too. So for this week’s segment, we’re going to take a break to listen to new tracks from Tom Brosseau, Field Mouse and Cass McCombs.

Plus, we’ll get a book recommendation. Because what’s a good break without a good book? Below are the tracks he's curated.
