Mad Toast Live! Has Great Lineup for November;

All Shows at the Brink Lounge








For four-and-a-half years now Madison musicians Chris Wagoner and Mary Gaines have tirelessly supported madison-area musicians with their Mad Toast Live! performance and podcasts. The show was started in May of 2008 and was exclusively held at the Brink Lounge in Madison.  Eight months later the hosts teamed up with Andrew LaValley of Bear Sound to broadcast the show over the internet and as a podcast.  In July of 2009, the show was picked up by WORT 89.9FM.  In 2011 our very own Local Sounds Radio added the show to its lineup, airing Monday through Friday at noon. Two episodes are aired each week from midnight to 2am on Saturday. The show still takes place at the Brink Lounge but also at other venues in the area.
