Ed Toth (Doobie Brothers) and Keith Howland (Chicago) spent time hanging out as their bands toured together, throughout the years. Living in the Nashville area, they formed Button with the Doobie's John Cowan. Their music, in this new endeavor, leans towards progressive rock and expands the traditional recorded music horizons that they've been know for throughout the years. Ed joined award-winning program director Ray White in the Summer of 2017, as the Button project was nearing completion, and Keith sat down with Ray during the Summer of 2018, after the albums release, to talk about the unique project.
