Bear's Den, the British band fronted by Andrew Davie and Kevin Jones, first toured the US in a campervan, a trip featured in the 2014 documentary, “Austin to Boston.”  Davie and Jones talk with host John Floridis about their 2019 album, "So That You Might Hear Me," and the change in tone it represents. Next, Flathead Valley singer-songwriter and actor Nick Spear explains how projects like the series of music videos shot in Montana ghost towns help him keep“the story” front and center, combining his passions for acting and music-making. (Broadcast: Musician's Spotlight,  10/22/19 and 4/14/20. Listen on the radio Tuesdays, 7 p.m., or via podcast.)
