Today, we are joined by the musical legend Ray Prim.
There’s no question of Ray’s skill on the guitar, but what you might not know about him is how absolutely hilarious he is too. If you want to have a good giggle, Ray’s the guy to talk to.
We have a talk about how the current situation with Coronavirus has affected him as a musician, as well as in his personal life.
We also talk about the different ways that the virus has affected daily life for everyone, and how some people are taking it more seriously than others.
Finally, Ray gives us a real treat with an exclusive song that he shares with us right here on the podcast.
