On this show, we welcome up-and-coming Bethlehem sad jammers Small Mess to Shards for a session. We also mark the release of the band's first 5" single on Square of Opposition Records by talking with Square of Opposition founder Chris Rejec and listening to some selections he brought from the label's catalogue. Square of Opposition Records has been an enduring presence in the Lehigh Valley's DIY punk community since it began in 2001, and Square of Opposition's release of the new Small Mess Out the Window/Fourth of July 5" single is only the latest in a 16-year history supporting DIY music in the Lehigh Valley and beyond.
