LEXINGTON, Ky. — This week singer-songwriter Eric Bolander and Morehead-based rock trio Bedford Band joined Matt Wickstrom for episode 61 of Wick’s Picks on Lexington Community Radio.

Kicking off the program in his first appearance on the show since June 2018 was Bolander, who talked about the upcoming re-release of his 2017 album “The Wind” on Louisville-based Eastwood Records, working as an art teacher and how it correlates with his musical endeavors, balancing music with a full time job and fatherhood, and much more. We also heard album cuts “Ghost” and “The Wind” from the Lexington-based artist.

During hour two Sam May, Tristan Frazier and Trevor St. John of Morehead rock trio Bedford Band hopped in the studio to discuss the band’s formation, evolution from indie rock into classic southern rock, attending Morehead State University’s music program and much more. The band also performed “Bone Orchard” from debut album “Content” and new song “Temporary” live and stripped down in studio. Additionally, we also listened to the album cut of title track “Content.”

Other music heard throughout the program included Tyler Childers’ “Lady May,” Brent Cobb’s “Diggin’ Holes,” Young Heirlooms’ “Bury Me With My Hammer” and Joslyn & The Sweet Compression’s “What Did You Think Was Gonna Happen.”
