LISTENER OF THE WEEK: MACKENSI CRENSHAW
Bells goes great with vinyl!
I live in … Columbus, Ohio
I work as … an outdoor education instructor working with K-12 students, but I’ll be going to graduate school in the fall!
I discovered “Rockin’ the Suburbs” by … listening to Jim and Patrick’s previous podcast and following them over to this one! I stayed because I love how listener-involved this one is.
The last record I bought was … a 45 of the Monophonics ‘“Chances." Last LP was Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square Club. CD was Marvin Gaye’s You’re the Man.
The first concert I saw was … an all-ages Social Distortion show. I was probably only 12 or 13, but I remember thoroughly enjoying it.
The last concert I saw was … a free outdoor show in downtown Columbus for St.Paul and the Broken Bones. One of the best concerts I’ve ever attended, definitely a band to go see if you get the chance.
I play … the viola. I was classically trained from 4th grade through high school. But I haven’t played since. I dabble with guitar, ukulele, and harmonica, which is much more fun.
I am drinking … Bell’s Oberon Ale! It’s seasonal and the release was earlier this week. I was turned onto it while living in Michigan. I have fond memories of going out on release day while in college to get it with my friends.
My favorite basketball team is … Ohio State. As a Columbus kid, I am a Buckeyes fan through and through. I’ll generally watch any Big Ten game that‘s on, though (RIP March Madness 2020).
