Cindy Howes talks to Alex Stanton, a Pittsburgh born and bred singer/songwriter who heads up the indie folk band townsppl.

Growing up Stanton spent a lot of time hanging out on the set of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. His mother worked in the art department for the show and that actually ties in with how he got his first guitar. Also Stanton discusses opening his own music school, Sunburst School of Music in Squirrel Hill. We talk about the community of musicians that he has found and fostered since opening the doors.
