    BS Goes to Tampa... Lit'trally

    Here's a short show for now full of silly words. I talk about Tampa, FL, how I got here, the future of the show and share some stories of the journey thus far with my partner in crime, my awesome wife, Staci.

    BS with Adam Seymour

    BS with Adam Seymour

    It's been a while, but here's a brand new episode. Today's show is a departure from music and my normal topics as I have some deep conversations with my friend, Adam Seymour. Adam has a deep outlook on life and we talk about all kinds of various issues of the human psyche. He has found a way to quiet the noise and be at peace and love within himself. We also get into relationships and the feelings that surround relationships. This episode was very cool for me as well as eye opening and I really think you're going to dig it.
    *DISCLAIMER* This episode has almost nothing to do with music. We talk a lot about feelings, emotional triggers, mental health, sexuality and the human condition.

    BS with Brian Christopher Mendes

    BS with Brian Christopher Mendes

    I know, it's weird! I'm posting a show on Friday. But I could not wait another week to release this episode; it's just too good. Today, I hang with Brian Christopher Mendes. Brian is a drummer out of Austin, TX and a couple years ago, he had a video he made as a joke go viral. He's been a drummer for more than 30 years, and does tons of session work in the Austin area. He's got a cool story, an amazing sense of humor and some very interesting outlooks on music and drumming. I reached out to Brian and we had one of the coolest conversations. Since we'd never met before, we just talked about all kinds of music stuff as if we were sitting in a bar having a beer. This episode was a lot of fun and it may be one of my personal favorites.

    BS with Lance Eric

    On the show today, I have a great conversation with Lance Eric. Lance is the bass player for Bang Tango as well as his own project, Color Of Chaos plus a few more. Lance is a laid back dude and we talk all kinds of music stuff including the current state of gigging, different cities' music scenes, touring and Lance gives me a geography lesson since I'm kind of slow. Lance also has cool stories about playing overseas and how he may or may not have made a famous musician a little upset.

Best podcast ever.

Buffalo Chickenfingers ,

Super Fun and Insightful!

I found this show by accident, I heard it mentioned on another podcast and decided to check it out.
I AM HOOKED! Even though I dont live in Louisville, it doesnt matter. This guy has lots of stories, lots of friends, and has had a ton of great experiences! This show is great fun, super insightful, and introduces you to some really really amazing people. I highly recommend this podcast. You will thank me.

A drummer....who thinks he’s a musician....

As the intro states: “somebody gave a drummer a microphone...for his VOICE?!”

Seriously, Steven has a great podcast here. I’ve learned things I didn’t know about him. I’ve learned about people in the local scene whose names I’ve only seen on Facebook. And I’ve laughed once or twice. Ok.....I’ve laughed A LOT.

Keep the hits coming, O. The way my kid beats on things he’s either going to a fabricator or a drummer. If it’s the latter I’ll send him your way.
