The one and only, Wayne "The Train" Hancock paid us a visit early one June morning back in 2010 for this studio session with our very own Doc Martin. He may be a little on the young side but we consider Wayne to be a living legend carrying the torch of Classic Country wherever his path may lead him.

Reykjavik Calling is an annual musical event that pairs Icelandic and Denver musicians together for a truly unique free concert showcase. The concert is part of the overall Taste of Iceland series of events that unfold every year at various locations in Denver. Since it began in 2012, the Rekyjavik Calling showcase has created some remarkable collaborative moments between artists who had met in person only days before.

We checked in with them about the late Howard Zinn, Irish proverbs, and a whole lot more.
