David of Sing Leaf calls in to introduces his new song, Forever Green and we also get into a deep discussion via the phone with Bob Blumer about the movement #StopTheWaste to raise awareness related to hungry and getting creative with our bruised food.

And of course, we have a sneak peak into the upcoming 2020 tracks… it is going to be a furious year for rock n’ roll and punk rock…
