If you were to meet me in person, one thing that would become obvious really quick is that I am a man of very few words. Very. Few. Words.
But, when I have something to say, I say it, usually keeping my opinions to a small circle of people, one of which is my long-time friend, Brian. Living on opposite sides of the country, both with busy schedules (aka excuses), we would talk infrequently – sometimes about sports, sometimes about movies, sometimes about music. During the height of the pandemic, we starting talking more frequently, which led Brian to ask if I’d be interested in doing a podcast. Why not press record on our conversations and see what happens?
So, in the gaps of our busy schedules, we started recording. We talked about the future of music – is it live performance, recorded music, or something else? We talked about our favorite movie scores; the most clutch performances; the value of horror movies and the Marvel Cinematic Universe; and why we got into music in the first place. Being from Massachusetts and growing up in the 80’s, we still call each other “Dude,” hence the name of our podcast. We’re total amateurs at it, but that’s okay!
Whether five people listen or 5,000, we enjoy doing it, and it makes me appreciate our friendship of over 30 years even more. You can check out our podcast landing page here. Feel free to listen to the trailer, subscribe, and join the discussion.
One response to “Pull up a chair and join the discussion…”
Thank you for this contemporary look at the history of The United States Army Field Band. I have been interested in the history of this band for some years, since Chester Whiting took his first band on tour to Cuba in the 1920s. This kind of contemporary coverage of the band’s history has been needed for a long time. I hope to see much more of this kind of contemporary history on your blog in the future.
