cMW: Your music does not fit into the "radio friendly" category. Sometimes I wonder if the definition of "radio friendly" will ever change. What do you think?

Mark: We have been talking a lot about that today. I honestly do not think it is going to change that much. It is just going to take people not relying on radio quite so much to find out about music.

Imagine sitting in one of those little coffee houses and watching the poets on stage with guitars in hand. Such is the environment I imagine Cool Hand Luke to be in as I listened to their album.
