On June 2, 2008, Jeff “The Taper” Mewbourn and Justin “Beatbots Founder” Blemly were interviewed on WYPR’s Maryland Morning program on 88.1FM in Baltimore. Here it is for your listening pleasure. The interview is about 12 minutes long and features snippets from three of Jeff’s live recordings: Double Dagger, Small Sur and Oxter.
