Coming up this Sunday May 26th on the Strombo Show!

George's guests on the show this week, The National,  is a true band of brothers.  When singer/songwriter Matt Berninger decided to put together a band, he ended up recruiting brothers Scott and Bryan Devendorf, and twins Aaron and Bryce Dressner.  Fourteen years later, the band from Brooklyn have recently released "Trouble Will Find Me", their sixth full length LP.  Have a listen to "Sea of Love", the first single from the album, and check out the mini air guitarist they found on the way to the video shoot. He's a natural.

Now you're wondering where Matt's brother comes into the picture? Well Tom Berninger has been touring with the band for the past few years, and on April 17th the band released a film chronicling Tom's adventures with The National.  "Mistaken for Strangers" debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City and is coming to a city near you.


Alex 'The Can-Con Don' Narvaez stops by once again,this time celebrating women in Hip-Hop, including

 Lauryn Hill                                                                Queen Latifah                  


and Canada's hip-hop Queen                                                    Michie Mee.

the hottest tunes of the week,
