Kris Brown Interview

This is an interview I did with Kris Brown of the group Mr. Brown on Tuesday, November 16, 2007. We discussed the release of his new CD release Boderation recently released on Coinhead Records. I was fortunate to be able to play drums on the album. Contact me if you are interested in having me play on your tracks.

50s R&B – Part 1

This is from a radio show I did with my father on KAZI 88.7 FM in Austin, TX on Monday, January 15, 2007. Most of the city was snowed in that day due to ice that had covered most of the city.

Here is the playlist for this half of the show:
