About Person Place Thing:
Person Place Thing is produced with the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan and sponsored by WAMC Northeast Public Radio. An interview show, it is based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result? Surprising stories from great talkers.

Musical Guest: Bendt
With lyrical grit, dynamic grooves, and atmospheric, yet driving melodies, Bendt has carved a distinctive sound into the face of modern rock. Formed in 2015, Bendt evolved out of the crucible of the Albany, New York music scene as a passion project between friends. Bandmates Matt Plummer (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Carl Blackwood (lguitar), Cody Bingham (drums), and John Longo (bass) work to craft a unique presence, one that draws from their individual musicianship and shared love of a unique blend of musical styles. As Bendt’s songs leap between soaring riffs, emotive screams, unusual time signatures and bass-heavy grooves, the band captures something that is universal while simultaneously personal and immediate.
