A podcast by Sean Perrin about Radiohead.
HeavyPiano on Improvising Radiohead
In today's episode of the show I speak with Joshua Piper who is the pianist behind the HeavyPiano YouTube Channel and a professional musician in Austin, Texas. We delve deep into his creative process, and he even plays some piano for us live on the air with excerpts from No Surprises, Exit Music (For a Film), and Motion Picture Soundtrack.
Alan Cross, Host of The Ongoing History of New Music
In today's episode of the podcast I'm joined by Alan Cross, who is a self-defined "Professional Music Geek," the host of The Ongoing History of New Music, and author of The Secret History of Radiohead. We discuss Alan's view of Radiohead's career from the perspective of a radio broadcaster, how streaming is killing the music industry, and why the modern "song economy" means truly innovative music like Kid A and songs like Paranoid Android may not have become successful had they been released today.
I Met Thom Yorke of Radiohead!
In today's episode I discuss what it was like meeting Thom Yorke in October 2019, share some information about upcoming guests, outline some of the challenges faced as a podcaster about Radiohead, and how you can help me develop great new content.

Radiohead: Music for a Global Future - Phil Rose
Today on the program my guest is Phil Rose who is an international speaker and author who has taught at a number of Canadian universities. He’s the author of a new book called “Radiohead: Music for a Global Future.” We discuss his book, how historical events influence the band and their music, and why it’s important to analyze a song’s lyrics even if they seem abstract or the associations are not immediately apparent.
Brahms vs. Radiohead: A Conversation with Steve Hackman
Steve Hackman is the musical mind behind the compelling production Brahms Vs. Radiohead, which fuses together Brahms’ First Symphony with Radiohead’s seminal album OK Computer. We discuss the vision behind the project, Steve’s passion for both classical and popular music, and how it’s helping not only bridge the gap between musical generations and expose new audiences to the orchestra, but how it brings new audiences to pop music as well.
Follow Me Around: A Conversation with Robert Jonas
Robert Jonas has seen Radiohead 28 times dating back to 1993. We discuss some of his favorite concert moments over the years, why Thom Yorke dragged him onto a tour bus over a T-shirt, a hand written letter he received during The Bends sessions, and some tips on attending shows yourself. Near the end of the episode we go into the weeds and discuss the state of modern concert ticket sales, Elliott Smith, and speculate about why the band members' conservative lifestyles may have prolonged their careers.

Satisfying for Musicians
Found this via an Instagram ad and decided to give it a whirl. Was not disappointed. Interesting, in-depth, and inspiring. Bonus points for Sean being a fellow Matt Good lover and Calgarian!
Finally!! Thank You!
Kudos to Sean Perrin for producing a podcast that I feel will appease the mind of the most discerning Radiohead fan.
An acute foray and thought provoking exploration of our favourite band, music and creative process in general packaged with a casual personality and approach.
