Tuesday Feb 26, 2019

Hello friends! Singer/songwriter/actor, Ben Dickey is my guest for episode 780! You might know Ben from playing Blaze Foley in the Ethan Hawke directed movie, "Blaze". Ben's new album, the gorgeous A Glimmer On The Outskirts drops next Friday, March 8th. The album was produced by Ben's "Blaze" co-star, Charlie Sexton and is the first release on the new SexHawkeBlack Records. He'll be on tour of the U.S. supporting Hayes Carll until may. Go to bendickeymusic.com for tour dates, music and more! Ben and I met up at the SexHawkeBlack Records headquarters here in Austin last week and had an amazing conversation about his amazing journey, from Little Rock, Arkansas to Philadelphia where he worked in kitchens for 18 years eventually becoming a chef, to Louisiana where he stepped into acting in the movie, "Blaze" and a whole new music career. I had a great time getting to know this soulful and amazingly talented cat. I'm sure you will too. I'd like to thank Erika Schultz and Jason Swedberg for setting this up. Let's get down!

Hello friends! 2016 was the most tumultuos year that I can remember... or at least it felt that way. For the last episode of the year, I sit down with two of my friends, KUTX's Laurie Gallardo and Quiet Company frontman, Taylor Muse! We discuss all things 2016; the deaths, the music, the movies, tv, books and of course, the politics. Pop culture was turned on it's head in 2016 and I really felt it deserved it's own show. I hope you enjoy this chat between friends. I sure did. What did you think of 2016? I want to wish you all a very happy and safe new year! Let's get down!
