October 8, 2007: Avengers and The Ventures

I was joined in studio by Penelope Houston of the Avengers. She stopped by to discuss the Avengers upcoming U.S. tour and play some rare Avengers tracks from past and present. I also played my interview with Nokie Edwards, the innovative on-again-off-again lead guitarist of The Ventures. Nokie discusses the Ventures early years and developing guitar techniques that would heavily influence '60's psychedelic and garage, like releasing the 1st charting single to use a Fuzzbox (Mosrite FuzzRITE).
