The B.U. Podcast

The Bloody Underrated Podcast was a show all about music, hosted by our very own Al Lafrance. After months of indecision, Al finally decided to bring the podcast to a halt in early 2013, after a few final episodes. Though these episodes are no longer available on itunes or on this very site, you can go see more info about them by clicking their links below. They will all be released on a sweet DVD in 2014, on B.U. Records, our record label.

Did you know that if you play all the BU podcasts back-to-back, they go for 53 hours? We’d call that one hell of a mixtape. And that’s what the DVD will be!
