Episode 178: An Interview With Andy Criscuolo


He’s the songwriter and lead singer of the band called The Grinders for which Annie and I sang harmony vocals in the late 80s and early 90s. My then husband, Dave, also played bass in the band, and you can hear him highlighted in the song Creature Features towards the end of the interview. Sprinkled throughout the interview are a number of our songs from the band’s newly released CD, “Classics Remastered.” You can find more music from the band on Spotify HERE.

I met Andy in 1980 when I moved into the Birdman dorm at Boston University, otherwise known as 90-92 Bay State Road. Reconnecting in 1985 and joining forces in this creative project ensured that our friendship would last for the rest of our lives. I am so grateful!
