If you are a lover of live music, and you live in Madison, chances are you’ve come across local musician Lisa Marine. If you have, consider yourself very lucky. If you haven’t…please consider this edition of Radio Chipstone your official introduction.
Marine moved to Madison in the late eighties and found herself at one of Madison’s Music Meccas…O’ Cayz Corral. Arguably one of the birthplaces of the Madison Punk Scene, it was destroyed by fire in 2001. Three years later it reopened as the High Noon Saloon and continued to host bands from Madison and around the world until the current pandemic threw a monkey wrench into the works.
In this edition of Radio Chipstone, recorded in 2016, contributor gianofer fields and Marine found themselves on a beautiful sunny day reminiscing about days long gone but not forgotten – thanks to a t-shirt.
