Hello! This is Mike Matthews hopping on the bus and heading to this week’s
half-hour of happy, THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH! We will talk to Chely Shoehart
and Floyd the Floorman, find out why people on BART in the Bay Area are
afraid to sit down, and we will catch up again with singer/songwriter Ben
Wilkins. So come with me into this always crowded cafe with interesting
characters called THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!
We also find out this week how gas prices will get and what some cities do
to keep their bus passengers’ minds off…well, being on a bus. Plus we
hear music from Reggie Regan, the Red Hook Ramblers, and Los Negretes.
It’s great to have Ben Wilkins back on the show. This is actually a piece
of the interview we didn’t get to air where he talks about how he approached
his recording session with the full intent of keeping it as “natural” as
We’re up to “effizode” number 21! As I write this my boxer, Basil, is
really mad at me that I didn’t take him for a walk yet. He’s shooting his
“boxer guilt” at me. Wow. Now that’s hard to shake!
Thank you for reading this little blog attached to this new podcast.
Comment on what you think of it down below. Next week we’ll hear some of
the Tristen interview that we didn’t get to and we’ll talk to Benita the
Rodeo Queen, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster. Lots of
people with “the” in their names.
