Elias Lucero a gifted guitarist on Listening Lyrics recorder May 18th, 2018

Elias Lucero is one gifted dude. Listening Lyrics was thrilled to have him on the show. Not only is he talented but a very articulate and all around great guy. Elias is a music student at Sacramento State. He plays in several bands including Papa Joe and The New deal. Elias is also very busy between schools and the many gigs he squeezes in. Genre you ask? Well better ask Elias himself he answers that during the show. Elias was my first guest that feeds his guitar directly into the studio board, which is new board as of a few weeks ago. So the hour does have some techinical hic ups.

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)


Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!


Kind words from a kind brother - thank you

Underground Grandpa rocks!!

Thanks ed
