LISTENER OF THE WEEK: JUSTIN STEINER
I live in … Valparaiso IN
I work as a … fifth-grade teacher, and the Suburbs Pod playlist manager
I discovered “Rockin’ the Suburbs” … as a fan of the old show. I found out about the new one through social media.
The first record I ever bought was … country music. Maybe the Oak Ridge Boys? I do know the first "rock" album I bought: Thriller!
The last concert I saw was … Ben Kweller at Basement East in Nashville with my brother and his girlfriend back in November. Went for the weekend for a wedding, and this was an added bonus. If things were normal, this answer would have been Drive-By Truckers with a number of the Suburbs Pod community.
My favorite song is … "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" as performed by Elvis Costello & the Attractions and written by the great Nick Lowe
I play … a number of instruments, but not very well. I can play guitar, bass, piano/keys, and harmonica. Did all of those when I was in a band back in the mid-2000s.
I am drinking … Sex and Candy by 18th Street Brewery. This is a local brewery that has interesting names for their beers, and they do many tasty IPAs. This is one.
