Talks! Episode 40 - Ryan McGinnis (My So-Called Band/The World Famous Milestone)
Show Notes

After almost a year of trying to get this together I finally got to talk to Ryan McGinnis, who ran the Milestone back in my heyday, and went on to play alongside Chris Peigler in My So-Called Band for many years after. We talk about how he ended up behind the soundboard at the Milestone and how that led to running the place, how he became the guitarist for MSCB, running the local music website, Still Not Dead, his more recent acoustic music, his new endeavor as an author, and so much more (including a hilarious story that involves yours truly and the police)! We also talk a good bit about Chris Peigler and his lasting influence on the Charlotte punk rock scene. Be sure to stick around to the very end, as this one has important double stingers!
