Episode 59: Har Mar Superstar

I have listened to Har Mar Superstar’s latest record, Bye Bye 17, pretty much nonstop since I bought it back in March of this year. I bought it the day after seeing one of his shows at SXSW.  Since then, any time I talk to anyone about great records of the last year, I make sure to tell them that it is at the top of my list. This interview is easily one of my favorites that we have done and I hope you all enjoy it.

Episode 29: Mike Mattison (Scrapomatic, Tedeschi/Truck Band)

Mike Mattison is one cool motherfucker. He’s a singer in the Tedeschi/Trucks Band, a founding member of Scrapomatic; one of the most eclectic blues, rock, roots based bands that you have ever heard, former writer and vice-president of the Harvard Lampoon, and an all around force to be reckoned with. He’s also got a solo album coming out soon and you are going to want to own it. Mike and I met about a year and a half ago and every time I see him, I love engaging him in conversation because he is incredibly witty, knowledgeable and just great to talk to. We got a chance to sit down recently when the Tedeschi/Trucks Band was playing with the Black Crowes at Jones Beach Amphitheater on Long Island. Check it out!

Episode 15: J.J. McCabe

Our guest today is J.J. McCabe. J.J. is one of the kindest and most fascinating people I have ever met. He has lived an extraordinary life. He was JFK jr.’s guitar teacher, member of a pretty popular band, smuggler, inmate, successful hair colorist, and that was all before he was 30. This is definitely one of the more interesting conversations that I have ever had. I hope you enjoy it.
