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

Thursday Feb 08, 2024

It's a sad day in the world of music and radio today. Yesterday, legendary rock and roll madman, activist, thinker, talker, Mojo Nixon passed away. Mojo will be missed by so many. His musical reach was huge and he also had such an amazing impact on so many people on a personal level. Myself included. My thoughts are with his family and close friends. I was a huge fan and am so saddened by this loss. My conversation with Mojo is from episode 1275 from May of 2023. It's such a great conversation. Classic Mojo. There's a lot of laughs and Mojo's story and how he handled himself as a musician and human being is all there. Rest in peace Mojo. You'll be missed.
