hello everyone! i hope you had a great thanksgiving. i did. i went to houston with my cousin megan and we had thanksgiving with our family. it was awesome! friday night i played at the house of blues in houston with skyrocket. and saturday here in austin. all in all, it was a great holiday. i even went to the mall on saturday and got in and out without a problem or much difficulty. so, whatever madness happens on "black friday" does not happen on the saturday after.
my guest for episode 123 is the extraordinarily talented musician/singer/songwriter/producer, gurf morlix. you might know gurf from his work with such luminaries as, lucinda williams, warren zevon, ian mclagan (episode 105), patty griffin, michael penn and many, many more. he's worked as sideman, producer, and singer/songwriter putting out his own albums and touring behind them solo. i have always been a fan of gurf and his work. so i was really excited to go out to his home studio to sit down and talk to him. it was even better than i thought. gurf is a gracious and humble artist as well as a gentle and thoughtful man. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.

hello everyone! i have had a very interesting week. the last album i put out, "el payaso", has been lost in some legal issues with the label that put it out. the legal issues were internal because of a soured partnership. anyway, the legal issues were worked out and i got the masters back and 600 copies. i am so excited!!!! i loved that album and felt like the timing, label-wise, was terrible. now i have it back. i can sell it at shows. i don't really know what all i will do with it. but the possibilities are very exciting to me. also, i will be playing a solo this sunday at hotel vegas in austin. come and buy one there!!! if you're in austin, here's the info...

my guest for episode 56 is one of my favorite musicians/funny people, billy harvey. billy moved to l.a. a few years ago and so it was nice to get together and catch-up! i found out he was in town from someone on facebook saying they were going to his show. i got in touch with him and he came by the apartment before his show. i'm glad we got to sit down and catch-up. we talked about being socially awkward, moving around a lot, his first bands, the l.a. hard rock scene, playing guitar and producing several acts including, bob schneider, charlie mars and many more, making a documentary film with the camera on his laptop, working hard as an actor and making two full-length films. you can find billy on facebook and you can see his very entertaining website i'm glad billy got to stop by. i really enjoyed our conversation. i hope you do too.

when i was around 3 years old, i started preschool at place called, esperanza. it was a preschool next to the college my mom was attending. esperanza was run by a nice lady named, virginia and her sweet, music-loving son, william. throughout my life i have run into william so, 40 years later i might still run into him when i am in houston, either when he's playing at the last concert cafe' or in the audience at a carolyn wonderland show or in a random aisle at whole foods. anyway, william's love of music reenforced my mom and my aunt's music loving ethic they instilled in me and i have never forgotten him or our walks in the morning when we sang, "good day sunshine" by the beatles. thank you william.
my guest for episode 49 is the dead left's singer and main songwriter, neal kassanoff. neal is also a preschool music teacher. he has developed a teaching program that has been celebrated and used a lot. he has also has a good career as a "grown-up" people music writer. with his new band, the dead left, neal has finally found his "rock voice" and is out making records, playing gigs and taking names. i ran into him the other night at the hotel vegas and i invited him over for a podcast. he accepted. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.
