Hello friends! I hope you are all safe and healthy. Welcome to episode 900!!!! I can't believe we're actually here. I can't believe it! First, I want to thank you and everyone who has listened to the show. I want to thank all of the artists who have come in and shared their story and made this show worth listening to. Thank you. I have loved doing this show. I have connected with so many artists and been inspired by their music and their stories. I hope you have too.
Since episode 400, we've done a live show for each hundred episodes. Obviously, this was not an option for episode 900, so I put together some snippets from other live shows. What Made Milwaukee Famous' Michael Kincaid explains himself from ep. 15 Live at Momo's, AJ Vallejo talks us through the Vallejo label shuffle from ep 182 Live at Strange Brew, Suzanna Choffel & Nakia talk about being on The Voice from ep. 400 Live from The Townsend, Kathy Valentine talks about the magic of being in a band and winning over an audience from ep. 415 Live at The Townsend, Suzanna Choffel talks about Jem and the Holograms with Nakia and AJ Vallejo from ep. 500 Live at The Townsend, AJ Vallejo and Nakia talk metal and Alabama from ep. 600 Live at The Townsend, Acey Monaro (Go Fever) tells a crazy story about El Paso while Ray Prim, Laurie Gallardo and Nöelle Hampton react to her bad decisions from ep. 800 Live at Cosmic Coffee + Beer.
Again, thank you so much for listening. I'm going to keep on bringing you stories from your favorite artists, introducing you to artists and spreading the word of music as long as I possible can. This show is, has and will always be available for free. However, if you would like to kick in a little something for all of the work, you can contribute here: Johnny's PayPal it is always appreciated. Let's get down!

Episode 592: girling

Tuesday May 16, 2017

Tuesday May 16, 2017

Hey guys! I hope you all had a good weekend. I had a strange weekend that made me believe that something celestial or astroligical was working against me, my tires and my man-purse. I did some driving and played some shows. We got to play a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It was a huge gala that rased over a million dollars for the JDRF. It feels good to be a part of that especially because my sister Nicole has "type 1". Anyway, I also got to spend some time with my aunts and my grandmother which was good. we had breakfast on Mother's Day and it reminded me how grateful I am to have such a loving family.
