We're not big sportos around here. We know, right? Hard to imagine. Folks who spend all of their time writing about, talking about, listening to, thinking about and making music, you'd think we'd all be big jocks, especially since we live in such a huge sports town. That in mind, we're not sure how big of a deal this is, but we just heard that Mayne Street, a show hosted by ESPN Sports Center's Kenny Mayne, has reupped with the Boulder Acoustic Society to continue providing music for the show. New episodes begin airing tonight. On a related note, the band has also added a new member. Bassist Neil McCormick, who's played with Andrea Ball and the Claim Jumpers, among others, will now be holding down the lowend for the Society. Violinist Kailin Yong, meanwhile, will be parting ways with the act at the end of the year to focus on the Peace Project Orchestra.
