The man, the myth...  The Doctor.  Not Who, but Z!


This is a super sized episode and is a lot of fun to listen to.


Mike was a really high energy guest, enthusiastic and fun.  He loves what he does and what he does is make great amps!


Mike also had a lot of stories about his friend, the legendary Ken Fisher, the designer of Trainwreck amps who passed away a few years ago, and how Ken collaborated with him to help create some of Z's best know amps.  Including Brad Paisley's Z Wreck!  The good Dr. also talks about some of his other high profile clients, like Joe Walsh and Steve Miller.
