It’s been a little bit since our last episode of The Western Reserve but we think this hour of all Numero Group music from the state of Ohio will be worth the wait! Numero Group is a label (well a few labels) that release compilations, archival releases, and reconstructed albums, including several collections over the years focusing on Ohio labels and scenes from previous years. We focus here mainly on Capsoul (a label from Columbus) and Boddie Recording Company (a label, studio, record pressing plant from Cleveland) with a few other fun things thrown in. Take a trip through Ohio music of the past!

Happy non-denominational holidays from The Western Reserve! This episode is perfect for that drive to see family on Christmas, just over an hour of all-Ohio holiday music.

Happy Holidays! We told you it would not be as long of a wait for the next episode of 6 Bs and a P, Dave. This is a quick one but packs all the hard hitting laughs and cutthroat analysis you have come to expect from 6 Bs and a P. On Episode 68 we mostly go live to Brian watching the Browns/Bengals game with the one and only Miles Down of Athens, Ohio. They discuss being fans of Ohio football teams, Tim Krumrie, beer, why the Browns might be bad, and how despite rooting for different teams we all hate Cris Collingsworth and his stupid face just the same. Go 49ers!
Sorry it’s been so long. The Browns gave up and so did we for a bit, but we are back now and that is all that matters. The Browns may be 0-12 but the 6b1p crew give you a solid hour of funny non-Browns things and accidental forward thinking analysis. Brian, Ian, and Wiebe missed some important weeks: Trump is gonna be the president next year and Cleveland lost the World Series. They cover such questions as: What is the coldest you have ever been? Are there any good players on this team? Does Jordan Cameron listen to the Wu-Tang Clan? Take a listen and tell your friends… Go Browns!
