IBSC 137 Ronn Hill with Scott Kay on Local Licks 1994

Tonight is a long show, its an interview of Ronn Hill, with Scott Kay on his show Local Licks on KFMG back in 1994!   Its a great show that features what would eventually be Ronn's 2002 release on CD.  On the recording tonight are Ronn Hill on bass, JC Anderson on guitar, Bryan Mardsen on keys, Howard Feekerson, John Haun, and Paul Thompson on drums, and Paul Trimble on guitar.  I mentioned Sam Salamone on Keys, but he was on some later recorded material that was on the CD.  The interview was recorded at the KFMG studios, the music was recorded at Catamount, Juniors Motel, and SR Audio.  Bob Rosenbeck was the bass player who played with me on Local Licks that I had forgot to mention.
