Organic Farmer’s Song In McDonald’s Ad? We Ask Gregory Alan Isakov Why


January 28, 2014 - We are happy to finally present Gregory Alan Isakov as our guest today. I say finally because he made his debut in 2003 and released his fifth record The Weatherman last year. Gregory was born in South Africa but lives in Colorado where he grows his own food having a degree in Organic Farming. Which explains the controversy among his fans when one of his songs appeared in a McDonalds ad. We'll hear his thoughtful response.

Session Setlist:
That Moon Song
Amsterdam
Suitcase Full of Sparks


Recent Release:The Weatherman
Release Date: July 9, 2013
