“If you’ve got a hankering for some electric blues, rock or Psychedelic, guitar-based music, look no further than Andy Logan and the O.C. 75s. Mr. Logan…proceeds to play the holy-be-holy out of the sound and genre, knocking it out of the park while rounding and covering all the bases.”
"Your voice & material work EXCELLENTLY TOGETHER. Love your rasp, Andy. Well written, tight & SPARSE. Great job, brotha. You shouldn't change a thing. Thanks for letting me play on it!"
(writer of Sweet Home Alabama), Strawberry Alarm Clock

Listen as Andy talks with Tim Hibbs about his new album.
The Vinyl Lunch - a 2-hour program where they talked about Andy's career, played some of his music and dug into the deep stack of vinyl he brought to play on the show. 3/8/2016
The virtual lounge is open and Ty and Nick welcome singer/songwriter Andy Logan to Beats and Eats. Andy had big success with his arena rock band "Little America" in the late 80's selling thousands of records for the Geffen label. He's continued his success as a solo artist and his latest release is "Transistors of Mercy." The new record features a heavy guitar sound that harkens back to a time when the instrument was an important part of American music. Ty and Andy discuss decline of the guitar in popular music and why it's due to make a comeback. Plus, Andy looks back on the start of his career with Little America and his evolution as a solo artist. If you're a fan of rock music, and the guitar, this happy hour for the mind is not to be missed.
