Episode 101 - Stewart Brodian

Stewart Brodian has been entertaining audiences for many years. He is involved in so many aspects of the industry. He works as a DJ, a Howard Stern impersonator, a performer, and a recording artist. He also wrote and produced a TV show, and wrote a book called "I'm Not Snooki". He has been on my radar for quite some time, and it was great to have him on the show to learn more about his career. We covered many topics during our conversation. You can learn more about him at www.brodian.com. Two of his songs are included with this episode. Please reach out to Stewart and let him know how much you enjoyed his appearance!

Episode 099 - Ric Jaz

Ric Jaz is an incredible guitar player that has been working with Buddy Guy for the past 8 years. His story begins many years before that. He has been a professional musician for close to 30 years and has worked with some big names. He told me all about it during our recent interview after the Buddy Guy show at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA. I went to the show with my good friend Federico Zayas, and we were both honored to meet Ric in the lobby for a long chat. He hung out with us into the wee hours of the morning. Our conversation covered many topics, including his background, his love of sports, and his work with The Dells, Albert King, and Buddy Guy. The interview took place in a busy hotel lobby, so please don't let the background noise take away from the experience. It is the loudest during the first 2 minutes. It is less distracting after that. Ric shared so many great stories. You can learn more about him at www.ricjaz.net. Special thanks to Steve for making the night possible. This episode also includes two songs from The Michael Williams Band. Michael was my guest back on Episode 031. The featured songs are from his album "Fire Red". Learn more at www.michaelwilliamsband.com. The album is available at iTunes and Amazon. This a big episode...Enjoy!!!

Episode 098 - Stewart Kenny Part One

Stewart Kenny returns to the show for a special two part episode that is focused on his brand new album "Play". In this first part, I catch up with Stewart and he tells me about the journey he took to complete the album. Writing and recording the music is only a piece of the puzzle. There is a lot going on with the business side as well, and it takes almost as much time. He was very open and honest about the process, and I always appreciate that about him. This marks Stewart's third appearance on the show, and it is always a pleasure. Our conversation turned away from music for a bit so we could talk about what we love (and hate) about a few television shows. It is always cool when that happens. Stewart is such a funny guy, and we shared a lot of laughs! Two songs from Play are included with this episode. Stay tuned for Part Two. It will be a full track by track conversation about the album. Listen to his music at http://soundcloud.com/stewartkenny, and stay tuned for Part Two so you can learn more. Enjoy!
