Originally hailing from Sacramento, California, the rock band CAKE is known for its eclectic influences and singer John McCrea's distinctive voice and often-sarcastic lyrics. Oakland resident McCrea joins us in the studio for a live performance, and to discuss the band's latest album "Showroom of Compassion," as well as his career and political work.
McCrea will appear at Notes and Words on Saturday April 28 at Oakland's Fox Theater, a benefit for Children's Hospital Oakland.
