[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Monday’s program audio:
It was great to have in the studio this morning Tony Memmel together with Leslie and Ben from his band. Apart from being a great musician and songwriter Tony had to overcome adversity. Wanting to play the guitar is one thing, wanting to play the guitar with a missing left forearm is another, Tony taught himself to play the guitar by constructing a self-made cast out of Gorilla Tape that secures a guitar pick to his arm. Tony and the band will be performing and taking part in workshops all of the coming week. More information you can check it out… Here.
