Oct. 6, 2017: 'Size of California' featured on WDET-FM's Culture Shift program, via Jeff Milo's Milo Minute. Said Milo:
"The richly poignant, refined folk and Americana of singer/songwriter Mike Galbraith. Galbraith's got a great voice and a lot of heavy, poetic lyrics to lay on ya; lots of melody, as well. He's a student of Dylan, of course, but he's also very attuned to the sort of emotional grit of the grunge era, so he kind of blends that in. He makes it fit more towards those disarming, unconventional troubadours, like maybe a Paul Westerberg. Or more Billy Bragg, minus the accent."
