About the Hosts

Adam Wainwright

Podcast Host

Much like the protagonist of "I've Been Everywhere," Adam Wainwright has, in fact, been pretty much everywhere--all across the US, Japan, Australia. And, if there's a place with karaoke in his whirlwind path, Adam has probably already sang karaoke there. Currently, he lives in Newark, NJ, making use of that sweet, sweet GI Bill to get some continuing education.

Ed Cunard

Podcast Co-Host

Co-host and chief researcher for the podcast, Ed Cunard comes by his catholic knowledge of all things music honestly--he's oddly two degrees of separation away from a lot of old school musicians through his grandparents. The biggest gap in his musical education is how to actually make music that doesn't sound awful. When not singing in bars, he works as Director of Operations for a sales company, which almost makes sense with all those English degrees he's still paying for. He lives in the middle of nowhere with ten cats and two dogs.

Ben Dumm


Ben Dumm will have a real, grown-up bio soon, but he's real busy working on music (both for his personal projects and his professional ones). He graciously let us use his song "Gasoline" as our theme and bumper music. He's got lots of music to check out, and does commissions for commercial projects that require a music bed:

Gabe Cetra

Facebook Group Moderator

Episode 8 Guest and Esteemed Facebook Group Moderator Gabe Cetra is the unsung hero of the podcast, of backyard punk rock shows, and of two entirely too charming dogs. At some point, you may get to hear him play with Photo Joe and the Negatives if you are seeing gigs in the Pittsburgh area.

We just fucking love Gabe, man.
