Today's guest is drummer David Uosikkinen. David
is a music legend from Philadelphia and I am honored to have him
here. I was in high school in the mid-80's, and his band "The
Hooters" was all over the radio (and my record collection) the
whole time. Songs like "All You Zombies", "And We Danced", and "Day
by Day" dominated the airwaves. The Hooters opened for the Who,
played at Live Aid & Amnesty International, and "The Wall"
concert with Rogers Waters in Berlin! All of this success was the
result of relentless touring, respect for their fans, and
incredible songwriting. David told me all about where's he's been
and where he is now. His latest album celebrates the essential
music of Philadelphia, and it is fantastic. two tracks from "David
Uosikkinen's In The Pocket: Sessions" are featured here, but you
will want to buy the whole thing. It has great songs and so many
guest artists, all held together by David's drums. He is such a
talented guy. We also talked about his upcoming show at The Ardmore
Music Hall on 4/18/14, and his success in Europe. Learn more

that you caught up with him here.
