my guest for episode 321 is power pop legend/producer, ron flynt! i have had the pleasure of playing a couple of songerwriter-in-the-rounds with ron over the years. he's always been a super nice and amazingly talented dude. you might know ron from the seminal power pop band, 20/20. he's put out several solo albums, produced several albums and is currently in the drakes. ron came by and we sat down and talked about growing up in broken arrow oklahoma, moving to l.a., being one of the first bands interviewed on mtv, getting "locked in" by phil spector, touring with ramones and hall & oates, making music for hanna/barbera cartoons, making records for people, the drakes and much, much more. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did. let's get down!
