Several months ago, I got together with Michael Snyder-Barker and Chris Broski–two guys that perform together as the duo, Barker & Broski. (Michael also performs solo and as other performing entities.)
They also do a podcast called, “Making It Small in Music!” It’s a show to focus on musicians and others who are adjacent to the music business, a somewhat amusing platform to pass on info to those in similar situations.
Now, I understand that I easily fit according to the title–not by weight class, but I hesitated to do the show. I’m actually a fairly private person and I’m comfortable asking the questions–not answering the questions!
Well, after some thought, I decided to allow Barker & Broski to have at it with me.
They were very professional and it was a pleasant time!
They were even very patient when I rambled on for awhile, which seemed to happen frequently.
I agreed to do it, because I felt that if my words could help someone else making it small, then it was worth doing!
Somewhere in the interview, I brought up a Beatles sound alike band called, The Eggheads. They’re a band that is etched in my memory, yet I can barely find a mention of them.
As luck would have it, the concersation motivated me to do a search and I found not 1, but 2 clips of The Eggheads!
This was like hitting a mother lode for me!
Regardless, if you listen to the intderview, you will hear a couple of quirky things that affected how I turned out!
This is the promo blurb I wrote for the episode:
This month Mike and Chris talk with Phil Maq, host of “Theme Attic,” a radio show on Wednesdays from 12PM-4PM ET. It can be heard at WHFR, 89.3 FM in the Dearborn-Metro Detroit area, or streamed in the rest of the world https://www.whfr.fm/streamer/. We learn about Phil’s lifelong love of music, radio, and songs—both appreciating others as well as making his own. We also ponder other musical conundrums: How long should songs be?, Are there correct chord progressions?, Are drummers actually musicians? Those are just a few of the fun loving stories you’ll hear on this episode!
My radio show, “Theme Attic,” is on Wednesdays 12PM-4PM ET.
The show can be heard on WHFR 89.3 FM in the Dearborn-Detroit area of Michigan, or it can be streamed with this link: https://www.whfr.fm/streamer/!
