Jim Allchin joins me. Jim has a brand new album entitled Q.E.D.
His story is one of a bluesman indeed. Born and raised in a small house in the middle of farmland in Florida, he sometimes missed school because crops needed to be harvested.
From there, he became a world recognized leader in Computer Science and software. He worked at and started a couple of small companies before joining Microsoft in 1990.
Through it all, he had music.
His new album, Q.E.D., is “at the forefront of contemporary blues” — recorded in 5 different studios (4 in Seattle) and one in NYC.
In 2007 Joanne completed her award winning documentary on the “Queen of Rockabilly” Wanda Jackson, entitled “The Sweet Lady With The Nasty Voice”, won “Best in Show” at the Oklahoma City Film Festival, a Cine Golden Eagle Award, and was an official entry at over 20 other film festivals.
