    "Mr. Bonzai's Talking Music" Pilot Episode

    Back in the 80s and 90s, I conducted monthly magazine interviews with leading musicians, record producers, and audio engineers. Although the audio was not intended for broadcast at that time, today it is an engaging record of historic flavor, colorful and informal -- a sonic time machine, if you will. Here are some highlights from my Talking Music podcast series: Ray Manzarek, Phil Ramone, Leonard Cohen, k.d. lang & Ben Mink, Brian Wilson, Geoff Emerick, Robbie Robertson. SEEKING SPONSORSHIP

Small stories and large pulled from interesting people in interesting ways. Very fun.

Listen to this, it's a delight!

Hilarious and informative! A super fun collection of interviews with some of the greatest creators of the past half century. These are little windows into the creative process, and also some of the ridiculous shenanigans surrounding it. A bit like an audio walk through the more entertaining parts of the Smithsonian. Pure pleasure.
