Blue Dog Jam has been revamped. Nick Brunner brings you weekly playlists and interviews featuring cutting edge bands and their influential roots in CapRadio’s newest show Hey, Listen!

...One More, Blue.

After 11 years & 3 hosts, CapRadio bids farewell to the name Blue Dog Jam. BUT! As you'll find: Music discovery will continue with Nick Brunner at the helm. Come dig new Nick Cave, cry a little with Blur and aggressively shake with A Giant Dog.
