Music On The Couch


Follow This Show

Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
Come sit on The Couch every Monday when I present "Musicians You Should Know". We cover Blues and Rock and Roll with occasional forays into Country/Roots and R&B. Each show we interview at least 3 guests and sometimes 4. Many of my past guests honor Music On The Couch by debuting new music before it is released. I have had the honor to present WORLD PREMIERS of a number of albums over the last year.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Live, Uncut & Uncensored Conversations With "Musicians You Should Know" Chris Duarte grew up in Texas and bagan playing his brother's guitar and bought his first guitar at age 14. 37 years, 14 albums (including one 'best of', 2 instructional DVDs and thousands of performances later, he is still going strong. Chris and I will talk about his life and careet and check out songs from his latest Lucky 13. Lisa Mills was born in Mississippi and now lives in Alabama. She has been sharing her vocals, for many years, appearing on a Big Town Playboy's album. Her 2010 released, Tempered in Fire, and the world truly found her. Her new album, I'm Changing, is not really a new album, but a reworking of an album she released in 2005. What made her do this? What are her goals? We'll find out when I speak with Lisa. Michael Oneill is a singer/songwriter, producer, readio host and road warrior and he will join me to talk about all that and more. His new album is entitled I Like It Like That is a "deeply personal diary of ONeill's inner journey and his introspective take on the challenges of life, love and loss". From his first tour at age of 24, when he opened for then unknown U2. His list of touring partners and songwriting partners will impress you greatly. The Colorado Blues Society needed to raise funds for their Blues In The Schools Program, so they cut an album! Entitled Jam For Blues In The Schools, it was recorded one Saturday afternoon. Behind the direction of Couch Kids, Dan Treanor and Erica Brown, the album was recorded live, one take without any overdubs and turned out awful special. I will chat with Dan, Erica, and Scott Fitzke about this project and let you know how you can support this great cause.
