From Mr. Dave Sags himself,

 Another great treat this week: we welcome back that daring multi-incrementalist, vocalist and Prune-juice industry spokesmodel, Mr. Steve Sadler. He, of the former Barking Sharks fame, is truly one of our faves. A great glitarist,fiddler etc. etc., This guy can play anything with strings. Even without strings, we’re glad to have him around. Just don’t get too close.
