#663 : Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs
Today my friend Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs returns to the show to talk all about their new masterpiece record "How Do You Burn" which comes out this Friday.
This record is absolutely next level and I have not stopped spinning it all week.
It was so good to catch up with Greg on all things Whigs.
We dive into all kinds of topics including his early days in LA working at Tower Records, Peter Falk aka Columbo teaching him about Jazz, recording in the desert and Touring in Europe during a heat wave.
I love this episode.
Have a great week and looking forward to seeing you guys out on the road.
#662 : Kaya Stewart / Singer Songwriter
Kaya Stewart has been writing and recording songs since she was 13 years old. Sure Dave Stewart of Eurythmics is her Dad but that doesn't guarantee talent or success and she knows that.
After a song she wrote and recorded blew up on Soundcloud, records labels started knocking on her door.
Soon she found herself on Warner Brothers Records and out on the Vans Warped Tour but it wasn't all dreamy.
Kaya decided to start over and do things her way. During the Pandemic she was diagnosed with OCD which was the catalyst to write the collection of songs that make up her new album IF THINGS GO SOUTH which was co-written and co-produced by Dave Stewart.
The record comes out Sept 30th and will be available on all streaming platforms.
Kaya has an incredible voice and is a great songwriter and I really dig some of the songs on her new album.
I think you guys are really gonna dig this episode.

BEST MUSIC PODCAST IN DIGITAL SPACE
Dean put’s on the best podcast i so far know. I came here because I’m a huge Black Crowes fan. Through his podcast and the guests he had on, I found out more about the Crowes than I ever thought I would. Finally I can put things together i was wondering about for years.
Since then I listened to so many other episodes. The conversations just flow naturally, and the way he asks and paces the talks, these cover so much ground. For musicians this podcast is really a goldmine. Haven’t had the time yet to listen to the comedians, but I am sure there is more greatness.
I feel Dean is a brother in spirit, a soulmate. He has the guests I would invite if I had a podcast (my all-time true hero Marc Ford, Rich Robinson, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Josh Homme, etc.), he asks the questions I would ask and find interesting.
It’s all in there: Life, Death, Music, Art, Culture, Drugs, Madness, Love, Compassion - just a lot of fun.
Keep it up brother!
LET THERE BE TALK
Great podcast, great guests and Dean is just cool
