Ever wonder about your friends' other friends that you don't know?
I have loved Billy Power's music since I discovered Blenderhead back in 1996. He has a passion for people and it comes through in these first two podcasts where he interviews his friends, who are both musicians. He digs into the real lives of his friends, not just reviewing their respective band histories. Old childhood stories are dug up and laughter is the result.
Mark Salomon is one of my favourite singers so episode two (and three) are a treat. Keep 'em coming, Billy!
It’s been a long time coming! I listen to a lot of podcasts and honestly, content and production wise it’s already one of the best. You should listen!
