Today we’re spending an hour with the world’s first “lullaband.” Don Shelline chats with lead singer, Scott Shepard, about his love of language, eloquence, the art of articulation, and lyric writing.  Scott also talks about how a job at the library and listening to books on tape led to the band’s name: Book on Tape Worm.  Gavin Ryan plays a myriad of different instruments, including vibraphone, glockenspiel, and tambourine. And Ciera Black (cello) tells how the band finished an on-stage set in the dark after a power-outage.  Side note: Highway 89’s recording engineer, Mark Wait, enjoyed the band’s music so much that he made a personal copy of the show for himself—which is an extremely rare occurrence.  Follow Highway 89 on twitter @byuH89
