UM on TV

Umphreys McGees original composition Uncle Wally has made its way to ABC. “Alias”:, staring Jennifer Garner, has tapped the song for its January 26th episode, which will air 8 PM CST on ABC. UM Freaks should be sure to tune in early, as the song is scheduled to air within the first few minutes of the episode. Penned by guitarist Brendan Bayliss, Uncle Wally appears on the groups 2002 release, Local Band Does OK.

_Editor’s note: Yes, that’s ABC, not CBS. Aparently, The Good Mike Greenhaus is not an Alias fanatic._
