Lionel Boyce, BRUTAL!
Before there were podcast there was Elvis Mitchell keeping my hopes and dreams of one day having the opportunity to sit and talk with the inspiration held from Detroit. Eventually I would get the opportunity to chat with Mr. Mitchell but unfortunately it wasn’t on the Treatment. It was at American Rag where we talked denim and movies and a screenplay I’d been toiling over for years. He said he look forward to sitting down with me one day to discuss the film. I’m optimistic that day still might come. In the mean I’ll keep listening to my favorite radio/podcast host of all time. Thank you Elvis!
Best! Show! Ever!!!
