Radio Free Honduras is a mostly acoustic Latin folk-rock band, fronted by Honduran music legend and guitar virtuoso Charlie Baran. Before relocating to Chicago, Charlie was a fixture in the Honduran music scene. He became well known by those in the music industry as a composer and songwriter, and was revered by audiences for his talent as a performer. In Honduras he is best known as a founding member of the Honduran punta-rock band Banda Blanca. Charlie teamed up with Dan Abu-Absi (of JT and the Clouds and Birds of Chicago fame) to put together Radio Free Honduras, a band of seasoned Chicago players who bring a wide range of influences to the music.
Don't expect an hour of farming jokes. Raymond rants about technology, covering everything from iPhones to Netflix, and talks about the Discovery Channel's "Amish Mafia" and TLC'sa "Breaking Amish." A ranter, a storyteller who uses a lot of bad words. His last name and whether he is really Amish are two bits of information he keeps close to his vest.
