The Missing Generation was formed in 2015 as a duo by guitarist/singer Chris Schleuder and drummer Gerren Young. As their ties to the Kalamazoo music scene deepened, they added like-minded musicians Abe Savas and Tim Sparling to their mix of rock styles and original songwriting. It also gave them the opportunity to trade instruments and add another lead singer.

In the Takeda Studio at WMUK, The Missing Generation plays three original songs - "Stutter," "Summer Love," and "In Case of Love" - and talks to host Craig Freeman about the strengths they play off of, how they balance their music in their daily lives, the wisdom of playing for open-mic nights, and their appreciation for a supportive music community.
