Nov 30, 2012

You know, I started the streaming radio station because the new day job plus a toddler running around didn't allow me any time to keep up with podcasting on a regular basis (yeah, like I was ever regular about podcasting).  Now, suddenly instead of doing one podcast a month, I'm finding myself doing two per week.  Not sure what happened there.  On the other hand, I'm finally getting around to doing interviews that I've been threatening to do for years now, namely this show featuring Tony Cheesebourough and next week's show with Marvin Parrish, two guys that I've known socially for a while, but haven't had the chance to get in front of the mic to tell their story. 

I'm also trying to figure out why it's been seven years and 130 episodes before I got a straight-up blues player on this show.  Believe me, it's not for lack of trying, they're just generally too busy to come in for an interview.  Actually, considering Tony is equally well-versed and capable in funk, gospel, and RnB music, maybe I still haven't gotten a "straight-up" blues player.  No matter, Tony is a fascinating guy with a seemingly endless supply of great stories, just a few of which are represented here, along with a sampling of some of his diverse musical endeavors.  Look for him to hopefully complete three new albums this year in between touring with the Ohio Players and sitting in at the Noodle.
