Late last year, Levin released the fantastic record under his own name: ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning‘. The LP features an all-star slate of contributors that dot his musical journey, including guitarists/friends-of-the-pod Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff and Eric Krasno. Most recently, Peter has been an integral member of the Allman Brothers tribute ensemble ‘Trouble No More’, with our hero Nikki Glaspie, among others. Peter Levin was kind enough to take some time to drop in and explore his career and collaborators, a conversation that took place at the very end of 2023.

Special Thanks to Solaris Entertainment Studio for making Peter available for this interview.

After Peter’s interview wraps, we head right into the Summer Tours 2024 Preview segment with returning fave Jason Abrams, co-host of the Rock n’ Wrestling Connection Podcast, my friend of nearly 35 years and an encyclopedia of both rock n’ roll and pop culture.
