It’s with hesitation that we print this because WMNF’s long-running Grand National Championship doesn’t give away recordings. What it does is welcome hosts’ favorite bands, who get to tape a live session at the community radio station’s live music studio. The end product is usually a Bandcamp EP and YouTube live video that can be used to book shows in other towns. One band, Clang!, even used the stems to form the base of its own new, self-titled album.
