Know any great Baltimore bands?


Well, the 49ers lost the Super Bowl. 

And per our bet with WTMD, a public radio station serving the Baltimore area, that means we'll be featuring music of the Baltimorean persuasion at the end of Crosscurrents, and probably a few other places in our schedule this week.

Worse things could happen!  In fact, a few KALW listeners said that the opportunity to hear some Baltimore bands was actually incentive for them to root for the Ravens.  And at least one Baltimore music fan already weighed in on behalf of Lungfish, pictured here.

So do you know a great Baltimore band you'd like to hear on KALW this week?  Post a suggestion here, or drop a line to kalw@kalw.org.  Thanks!
