Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight.
Today we welcome Scott Mervis of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott:
