Secret Pitches, The Roll, Salsa, Hot Sauce, & Flying Saucers

Friend and UU Member, Robb the Uke Guy, joins us on this week's podcast. After an intro song from Robb and intro from Robb, Aldrine starts off the podcast by answering a question about "Secret Pitches". The guys then try to help Robb with tackling the Roll. Aldrine turns the tables, and ask Robb what he thinks about the UU experience? We get a history of Robb's music experience and how he was introduced to the ukulele. Aldrine has his own analogy for ukulele introductions. Robb surprises the guys with gifts from Rehoboth, and Aldrine gives Robb a Kauai delicacy. The podcast is topped off with advice for UAS, and an announcement about the UU Virtual Concert.
