**A new kind of open mic session, each week Michelle Morrow hosts and has a Singer/songwriter/musician in the spotlight! These artists are some of the most fascinating people, and during a brief interview just before they perform, she probes their past revealing just a little bit more than they have within a song.
Meet our featured player: Rolf Gehrung
“Like his favorite poet, Charles Bukowski, Rolf Gehrung doesn’t hesitate to write about drinking. And his new alternative country album, “Drinking Poems” — as the title suggests — invokes plenty of imbibing references. Gehrung, who has an English degree from California State University, Long Beach, and plays bass for the North County rock band Machine, grew up on punk music in Orange County. And while marketing has provided a better living than music, he has sold some of his songs to TV shows such as “The West Wing,” “Dawson’s Creek,” “Diagnosis Murder” and “Brooklyn South.” Gehrung’s album features twang-less, California country that will put a tear in your beer. ” Puffer's is the place.
