my guest for episode 63 is, kurt neumann from the bodeans. i was really looking forward to meeting kurt as i have been a bodeans fan since their first album, love & hope & sex & dreams in 1986. kurt came by the apartment last week to talk to me about the bodeans' new album, american made which comes out on june 12th.  and while he was there we discussed his upbringing in wisconsin, the origin of the bodeans, and his journey through the ever-changing business of rock and roll. i was really glad we were able to sit down and talk. the bodeans came into my life when music was taking on a whole new meaning. music was shaping me and keeping me sane at the same time and kurt's band was an important part of that. you can find out everything you need to about the bodeans and their new album and lengthy summer tour at www.bodeans.com i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.

ciao! -jg

    Isn’t it funny the way our taste in music changes with age (at least some of us). I remember the BoDeans and thought “Closer to Free” was way too poppy for me. Now listening to the song you played at the end of the podcast and remembering that song, I’m telling myself that they are great songs and I want to learn to play them. Kurt sounded like he was in a good place and happy with what he was doing. I’ve been through a few band break ups, some good some not so and I’m glad he didn’t throw in the towel.

    You are definitely back on form with this podcast J and I got the next 3 downloading now … Talk soon

    Let’s get down ….
