How the hell did that happen?
Well that’s a good question! We thought it was a good question anyway and we hope you, our good listeners do too, we being Boston based singer-songwriter Mary Lou Lord and Melbourne based musician and music writer Maryanne Window.
Mary Lou and Maryanne have been musical collaborators for the past 6 years. Having connected over their love of good songs and a series of musical parallels, they began writing and recording together and formed a fast friendship. They both found that they had a multitude of funny stories from their involvement in the music industry during its corporate hey day – the 1990s – where money still flowed and artists were wined and dined and indulgence was at a prime.
Mary Lou Lord has been known to tell many a cracking yarn via her Facebook page and the question was asked – “When are you going to write a book Mary Lou?” Rather than write a book for now, Mary Lou is going to be telling some of her stories here in this podcast and together with Maryanne, will be asking some of her favourite artists and friends some of their “How the Hell Did That Happen?” moments of life.

Love it

At first I thought this was titled 'how the hell did this happen?' because somehow a neat bassist from Melbourne (Maryanne) connected with a busker from Salem (Mary Lou) to push a podcast out into the ether. Two musicians from opposite sides of the globe, different time zones, different backgrounds who are connected by music. But no, it's not that. It's actually an organic conversation about coincidental happenings that lead to weird, memorable circumstances; like I just bumped into the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion at a record store... or Grant Hart just told me something about Bob Mould... that is, how that hell did that happen? This thing is highly recommended to those with an 'indie' bent and a love of stories.
