"Start with a traveling song, throw in a bunch of candy, a few dogs, a broken tailgate, a May-September romance and a boogeyman and you have the recipe for an impressive CD of original songs. Michael Radtke's Growler (a double entendre for his occasional gravelly voice and a reference to 64-ounce beer jugs) is a fun, feel-good listen from start to finish."
- Chris Samson, editor emeritus, Petaluma Argus-Courier
