In her family, Louise Post says that there have been three usual career paths: Join the clergy, practice medicine or become an artist. Thankfully she followed the latter. In 1992, Louise co-founded Veruca Salt with fellow vocalist/songwriter Nina Gordon, and the quartet became one of Chicago's biggest exports of the alternative-rock era. The duo's buzzsaw guitars pushed hit singles like "Seether," "All Hail Me" and "Volcano Girls" into the stratosphere, and despite some years apart, the full original lineup reunited for the much-heralded 2015 full-length Ghost Notes. This week, currently on tour promoting her new solo album Sleepwalker, Louise talks about harmonizing with her dad growing up, gravitating toward the women in her favorite bands, why she continually has "dreams of songs," and the inspiration for Veruca Salt's ode to vinyl, "Victrola." Stop by LouisePost.com for more info on Sleepwalker, social media and more.

From making multitrack recordings as a kid to DJ’ing at her high school radio station to fixing turntables for her college dormmates in the 80’s, Lisa Loeb has always been wired for sound. She made music history in the next decade, when her mega-hit “Stay (I Missed You)” became the first song by an artist without a record label to go #1. The song’s unique structure — bookending stretches of non-rhyming prose with an instantly recognizable chorus — still remains a marvel a generation later, with artists like Taylor Swift citing “Stay” as a gigantic inspiration for their own wordplay, musicality and poetic honesty. On today’s episode, Lisa remembers trading 7” singles with friends growing up, and how the real-life antagonist in “Stay” was right there in the studio when it was recorded. Plus, from her own collection, Lisa shares one of the coolest and rarest pieces of vinyl ever discussed on the show! Visit lisaloeb.com for tour dates, socials and more. SiriusXM users can find her program Where They Are Now — where Lisa chats with fellow 90’s-era stars — via the SiriusXM app.
