PODCAST: Skateboarding is NOT a crime, but it IS an Olympic event. Plus, Asi Fui, ditching dates and Father’s Day indignities

On Episode #2 of “CAN YOU HEAR ME, LONG BEACH?” We talk about this weekend’s Dew Tour, a qualifying event for the 2020 Olympics and why Long Beach is Skate City USA.

Local band Asi Fui stops by to talk about the release of their first album, a Friday night show at Alex’s Bar, their connection with Ikey Owens and what was going on in those giant papier machete bear heads?

“Honey Falls” official music video from Asi Fui’s debut album “Parallelogram.”

Steve Lowery, Tim Grobaty and Jeremiah Dobruck talk all things Father’s Day, a lot of bad, and Asia Morris helps you figure out what to do this weekend while coming to grips with the fact she ditched her high school winter formal date at the Queen Mary.
