how did i get here?

”Johnny Goudie is the Marc Maron of Austin music. The veteran singer/guitarist – best known for fronting early Nineties pop band Mr. Rocket Baby and, later, his major-label rock act, Goudie – stepped up to the microphone with a new intention in 2011 and launched the How Did I Get Here? podcast. Now 840-some episodes in, the hourlong, twice-weekly interview show gives the host a platform to really connect with his Austin music guests, not just on what’s happening in their careers, but also in the shared experience of music appreciation – and that’s where he truly shines.” -The Austin Chronicle 2019

Hello and welcome to How Did I Get Here? From The Vault! Today we go back to episode 430 with legendary British singer-songwriter, Frank Turner! This episode was originally released on October 30, 2014. Below are my original notes from the show. Enjoy!
 
My guest for episode 430 is the amazing singer/songwriter, Frank Turner! Frank was in Austin on tour this week in support of his new album, Positive Songs for Negative People.He's been on tour of the U.S. for over a month with plans to return a lot in the new year. Anyway, I met up with Frank backstage at Emo's in Austin, TX before his instore at Waterloo and his show later that night at emo's. Frank and I had a fantastic conversation about record stores, the punk ethos, touring the u.s. and much, much more. I had the pleasure of getting to see his solo instore at Waterloo and full-band emo's show with his band, the sleeping souls. Both shows were amazing and intense. If he comes to a town near you, go see him! I hope you enjoy getting to know Frank as much as I did. Let's get down!
