    Ringo Starr, Abe Laboriel, Jr., Beatles author Debbie Gendler.

    Getting Ringo Starr don't come easy, but we did it! Ringo is here to chat about his new Crooked Boy EP (written and produced by Linda Perry), while also sharing some Beatles memories about the Get Back / Let It Be documentaries, his love of Country music and why he'll still be touring on his 84th birthday.
    We also brought in Abe Laboriel, Jr., who for the last 23 years as drummer in the Paul McCartney band, has been playing many of the ingenious drum parts first created by Ringo.
    And I Saw Them Standing There author Debbie Gendler talks about being one of only 728 audience members in the theater when the Beatles made their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show, and working with Brian Epstein as one of the first American Beatles fan club presidents.
    And RSD co-founder Carrie Colliton remembers Plan 9 Records fixture and Richmond VA punk musician Bob Schick (from Honor Role).

    Shannon & The Clams' Shannon Shaw

    Shannon & The Clams' Shannon Shaw

    Shannon Shaw opens up about the tragic events that informed the new Shannon & The Clams album, The Moon Is In The Wrong Place (Easy Eye Sound) which is a surprisingly upbeat, yet poignant narrative on heartache and healing, grief and resilience in the aftermath of devastating loss, and a tribute to the power of art and community to triumph over tragedy.

    The Lemon Twigs Return!

    The Lemon Twigs Return!

    Last year, The Lemon Twigs' Brian & Michael D'Addario made their RSD Podcast debut to talk about one of the best albums of 2023, Everything Harmony. Exactly one year later, they're back with a brand new album, A Dream Is All We Know, recorded mostly by themselves at their Brooklyn studio, except for one track on which they collaborated with Sean Ono Lennon at his studio in upstate New York. It's another strong set of original music and you won't want to miss this conversation.
    Carrie Colliton has the week off.

Great show!

This is consistently a great podcast with amazing interviews with superstars and (equally interesting) lesser known artists.

For True Music Fans

Paul does his research. He’s been in the music business as a musician, is well informed and does enough research to ask great questions. In every episode I’ve learned something about the industry.

Sorely Missed Voice

I used to listen to Paul on AM talk radio in Vancouver daily till the station changed to an all weather formate long ago. I lost my favourite host that I shared both similar music and film tastes with. We are contemporaries that both grew up in the shadow of Toronto so his references to his youth are always familiar. So glad I found this podcast and a long lost voice I’ve missed for years.
