how did i get here?

”Johnny Goudie is the Marc Maron of Austin music. The veteran singer/guitarist – best known for fronting early Nineties pop band Mr. Rocket Baby and, later, his major-label rock act, Goudie – stepped up to the microphone with a new intention in 2011 and launched the How Did I Get Here? podcast. Now 840-some episodes in, the hourlong, twice-weekly interview show gives the host a platform to really connect with his Austin music guests, not just on what’s happening in their careers, but also in the shared experience of music appreciation – and that’s where he truly shines.” -The Austin Chronicle 2019

Dwight Twilley 1951-2023

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

It's a sad day in the world of music today. Yesterday, power-pop legend, Dwight Twilley passed away. Dwight and his music will be missed by so many. His musical reach was huge and he also had such an amazing impact on so many people on a personal level. Myself included. My thoughts are with his wife, Jan, his family and close friends. I was a huge fan and am so saddened by this loss. My conversations with Dwight are from episodes 340 and 445 both in 2015 . They're great. There's a lot of laughs and Dwight's story and how he handled himself as a musician and human being is all there. Rest in peace Dwight. You'll be missed.
