Just last week we told you about the exciting partnership between Live For Live Music and the long-running Inside Out With Turner And Seth podcast, bringing you a fresh take on the music scene by combining behind-the-scenes and fan perspectives to segments and interviews of your favorite artists. The newest episode of the podcast features Umphrey’s McGee guitarist and vocalist Brendan Bayliss, featured in today’s release as the first of a two-part series.This episode features a discussion with Bayliss about how his life led him to South Bend, IN and then to Notre Dame University, all the while focusing on the formative days of Umphrey’s McGee. Rob and Seth talk to Brendan about deciding to invite Jake Cinninger into the band’s lineup, the beauty of the band’s gradual growth, and his hilariously disappointing encounter with Steve Miller.You can stream the new podcast episode in the player below!All music from the podcast is taken from Umphrey’s run at The Tabernacle in Atlanta.

Plump remains synonymous with the arena where Milan’s basketball legend began.With seconds left on the clock, he hit a game winning shot that brought Milan a state basketball championship in 1954.Now Bobby Plump, will remain forever associated with Hinkle Fieldhouse, formerly known as Butler Fieldhouse, where the famous shot was made.Through a donation to the Hinkle Campaign in Plump’s name, the southwest concourse ramp of the arena has been renamed after the Milan legend.The $50,000 donation is part of a fundraising effort that has netted $17.1 million to preserve the arena and improve facilities for Butler athletes and fans.Growing up in Milan, Tom Kohlmeier heard about the 1954 team that inspired the movie “Hoosiers.”It was Kohlmeier who led the way to get the concourse renamed after the former Indian star.On Sunday, a dedication ceremony featuring Plump, Bobby “Slick” Leonard, Butler President James Danko, former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels and screenwriter of “Hoosiers” Angelo Pizzo was held at Hinkle Fieldhouse.After his career at Milan, Plump went on to play at Butler and was later inducted into the school’s hall of fame.
