This week's show marks a new tact in creating podcasts for me ... and you know I love to change things up.  When Ben Bledsoe (ex Memory Thief) contacted me and offered to meet me up at "Studio C" for an interview, I took a quick listen to his stuff, decided he knew what he was doing and wasn't just some crank, then immediately took him up on his offer.  As such, this show is about as off-the-cuff and live as you can get.  In fact, you will hear that I am listening to the tracks for the first time as the show is being recorded.  This method is a bit more nerve-wracking going in, but on the other hand, editing afterwards is extremely easy -- and I hate the editing process, as you probably know.

Ben Bledsoe is a prolific songwriter who joins a list of distinguished front men who are attempting to break from the "rock band format" and break into a new, somewhat softer, format that showcases lyrics and songwriting of a small trio over the flash and brute force of a larger group.  With the strength and diversity he shows in the four tracks he's shared on this episode, we have no doubt he'll quickly find success and a following for his music.
