Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio with guitarist Peter R. Grant, author of “The Noise it Makes.” He says, “It’s a book about what music can mean to people, what it means to me. To illustrate my idea that in many ways it can mean almost everything, I have used illustrations from my life. From my earliest memories of an apartment full of music to teenage skirmishes with the rock and roll lifestyle."
Pete Grant was born in England in the late 50's. He pursued a career as a guitarist, but the career always seemed to get away somehow. He wouldn't swap a minute of it though. In the 90's, he found a home for a while in the music business, running web sites for Peter Green and Cream lyricist Pete Brown as well as sax great Dick Heckstall-Smith whom he also managed from 2000 to 2004. In 2004, Dick and Pete co-authored "Blowing The Blues - Fifty Years of Playing the British Blues" published by The Clear Press (Bath, England). That year Pete left England to live in California's Central Valley, and has fallen into music once more, happily playing with an array of bottom feeding bands.
Other show highlights include Steve Schneickert’s Hollywood History segment on the Barn Theatre in Porterville, California (where Pete currently lives), plus, Steve will join Pete to play a round of Spontuneous ‘The Song Game’ the award-winning and best-selling board game.
