A little while back my buddy Matt Rudolf sent me a message of a possible show idea. He mentioned that STL radio legend Jim Doyle (probably most known for 17 years at KEZK) had always wanted to interview Matt & his brother Larry. Jim Doyle suddenly passed in 2021 and never got to do that interview. So today's show is in tribute to Jim! 

Matt Rudolf (The Extra 3 & All Roostered Up) and his brother Larry Rudolf share their story of growing up playing music and their different paths.
