Garden State Sound
with Evan Toth

All jokes aside, New Jersey is a pretty great place. While it has a lot to offer as a state, it also has a rich musical history of which many people remain unaware. Everyone knows Sinatra and The Boss, but there’s much more.

Tune in to Garden State Sound with Evan Toth to explore the diverse music with connections to New Jersey. You’ll hear in-depth interviews with some of Jersey’s best music makers and have the opportunity win tickets to some of the best concerts in the state.

“So, I watched Jersey Boys (2014) this week and it got me on a kind of Four Seasons/Frankie Valli kick. While Eastwood’s film wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be, it underscored another major characteristic of a Jerseyan: determination. Though the Four Seasons—in their original incarnation—are no longer touring, Frankie Valli is still out there pounding the pavement, and has been since the Four Seasons’ hey-day was well behind him.

Summer is almost over, but stay determined, folks. Considering the speed at which things go, next summer will be here before you know it.

In addition to all of this determination, we hear The Looking Glass, Brick + Mortar, Morningside Lane, Real Estate, Chris Barron, Melody Gardot, The Pine Barons, The Milwaukees, and—of course—the Boss. We also hear the brand newly released take of the Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love” as reimagined by Yo La Tengo.” —EZT
