Hosted by Richie Castellano
I’m Richie Castellano, I play guitar and keyboards in Blue Oyster Cult. I also make YouTube videos, read comics, and play video games. Band Geek is a podcast where I get to combine all these things. We also have a house band that tackles songs requested by our listeners and jams with our special guests. As an added bonus, we also teach our listeners how to play some of these songs in bite sized lessons. If you like music, gear, movies, games, comics or anything in between, then get in here!Apple PodcastsSpotify<Google Podcasts RSS
