Strange Grooves started as a way for Cait and Cherise to unwind during the week. The two of them would meet up and hang out. They enjoyed having conversations about music after work, spinning records and genuinely getting to know each other and their friends in the community better. Now, in 2018, the podcast is still going strong – and is now, with their gracious permission, being featured weekly right here as part of The Lorenzo Review‘s unique plethora of contributor content! To get in touch with Cait and Cherise, send them a message.
