A Constant Grin for April 2, 2021: Indie rock with an echo

Each week DJ Chris creates a "poem-sentence" that contains pieces of all the song titles played in the half-hour indie rock music mini-tour. This week's is "January spirit took a swing at the western blue day drop." This week's image is from the band "Hello Echo," whose song featured today is "A Drop Is An Ocean." The band was LA-based, genre alt-folk-rock, and this album "Echo" is their second, released in 2014. Illustration by band member Andy Sarno. "A Constant Grin" airs live Friday afternoon 2-2:30 PM and Chris has produced over 500 episodes. Check out today's 7-song playlist below.

Hey I heard a song tonight on your show and I can't remember what the name of it was. You said it was a band that you hardly play on the radio and they're local? Do you have a playlist from your show tonight?
