William Garrett's ROOM TONE interview with The Bangles co-founder, singer/songwriter and all around creative force, Susanna Hoffs. From an intellectual and enlightened family from LA, she grew up surrounded by Hollywood's creative elite. Hoffs discovered punk rock in college, then co-founded The Bangles and made music history with worldwide hits. Solo records followed and a host of side projects including the band Ming Tea, the origin of Mike Myers's character Austin Powers. We cover lots of ground in a great conversation with a self described "go-getter"!
William Garrett's ROOM TONE interview with artist, musician and digital media entrepreneur Bob Holmes. Holmes shakes his family's judicial past, studied art at Rhode Island School of Design and was a founding member of the Grammy nominated 80's country punk band Rubber Rodeo.

From drawing naked ladies to creating digital environments for major companies, Holmes has been "failing upwards" all the way to the top.
