Wednesdays With Andrew...and Jamie!


Happy National Sibling's Day (this is real...look it up) and welcome to the latest episode of Wednesdays With Andrew, your weekly overdose of punk (and punkish!) rock. 

If you were sitting around contemplating 'how could Wednesdays With Andrew get any less substantial', boy do I have the answer for you! This week my pal Jamie swung by to share some of the music he enjoys, which he views (definitely not) in his own words, 'truly the sonic equivalent of muscle milk.' 

Grab your favorite beverage and join our conversation as we discuss a myriad of topics, like WrestleMania, what Jamie's favorite Pokemon is, and why he voted for Billy Corgan in the 1972 democratic primaries. 

This week's specially-curated playlist features dope music from bands like Bad Sports, Banner Pilot, Pennywise, Iron Chic, Beach Slang and oh so much more. So what are you waiting for....go listen, NOW:

Think about donating, getting involved, spreading the word or otherwise generally supporting organizations that help with suicide prevention....here are just a few examples of available resources:

  • https://samaritanshope.org/

Remember, no man (woman) is an island! You are never, ever alone, and do not be afraid to reach out to someone if you're ever feeling down.
