Dane Conover of the ’80s Band “Trees” Joins Doug Lynner

The critically acclaimed band Trees was pretty much a one-man-band but oh what a band it was! Join me when, that one man, Dane Conover shares his musical influences and how they led to the Sleep Convention album and beyond.

Ira Robbins of Trouser Press couldn’t praise the Sleep Convention album enough: He said, “That this album died the commercial death is not just incomprehensible, it’s criminal.

Join Doug and Dane Feb. 12, 2009 at 6pm and 9pm Pacific time on FlashbackAlternatives.com on Doug Lynner’s World of Noise.
