Ezra Furman, Olivia Maeval + Macko

We’re back for another sparkling episode of The Strombo Show. I’m really exciting for this one. Aside from the wild collection of songs. I’m thrilled that Ezra Furman is coming over to the house. Ezra has just release an album called 12 Nudes and I think it is one of the best albums of the year. Ezra and I lean into pain and discomfort of music, politics, gender and jokes and spin some incredible tracks. And, (also exciting) We’re gonna meet the first ever recipient of the George Stroumboulopoulos Music Therapy Scholarship.  Her name is Olivia and she might just show you ways that you can help. We’re a four hour, commercial-free, algorithm-free, consultant-free musical journey. More Music, More community, more love, more fight. Listen and share with your friends.

Thank you,
George
