Joe Satriani - Part One - Off The Road with Dave Lawrence - April 2022
Today, we’re starting a three-week celebration of the Off The Road series, marking a second anniversary this month, started when the pandemic cratered the entertainment touring industry, which often provided guests prior to the start of what would be Off The Road, in April 2020. The rest, as they say, is history!
To celebrate, three remarkable guests join us.
HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence welcomes back guitar monster Joe Satriani, among our first artists featured in the series, back in July 2020. With a new album, The Elephants of Mars, Satch returns to share the music, talk about his painting passion, and offer some of the most riveting storytelling yet in our series! We’ll have part two tomorrow for a fantastic Aloha Friday feature!
Off The Road started in April 2020 when the pandemic led to a halt in the touring entertainment industry.
