Back in 2000, Atom & His Package changed my view of what punk rock could be. Mixing comedy, humor, intelligence, catchy pop choruses, punk and a QY700 sequencer, Atom Goren started performing and touring the world with just his guitar and "package" (the QY700). I met Atom at a show in Monterey, CA in 2000 and kept in touch; he would often give me advice along the way. A few year ago, I got to open for him at FEST in Florida, a career highlight. On today's episode, we talk about teaching, family, spirituality and how music fits into his life these days. We also premiere an unreleased song of his! Awesome episode.
