Arch City Radio Hour: Ransom Note and Mt. Thelonious
Vocalist Merv Shrock and keyboardist Jon Parsons met and wrote what would be their first album of songs in a short period of time. Since then, they've been met with good reviews and appreciative audiences with their blend of rock and soul. They sit down with Nick Garcia to talk about the band and to play a few songs, too.

"Feelin' Great" Ransom Note on Reverbnation
Ransom Note on Facebook Mt. Thelonious
Mt. Thelonious was brought to our attention by jazz guitarist/vocalist/composer Tommy Halloran. Guitarist/vocalist Ian Lubar, violinist Alyssa Avery and bassist Mark Wallace play in a style that's really all their own. They talk to Nick Garcia about their first full-length release (which came out last year), playing on the road, and try to answer the question "what kind of band are you"? They'll also play some newer material, including a cover of an old Police song they make all their own.
"Every Little Thing She Does is Magic"
"All I Needed"
