Dr Womack joins us for another episode of Geeking On Music. His second book on George Martin, The Life of Beatles Producer George Martin, The Later Years, 1966–2016, was just recently published so we go hard in the paint on the Beatles and George Martin. Intro song is Sociopathic Love Song by The Swinging Lights off their new album Trouble with the Truth
Today's podcast was a fun conversation with the two busiest men in Austin, Richard Lynn and Ray Colgan. Richard runs four record labels, puts on a quarterly music and film festival and owns the revered venue, Beerland on Red River St in Austin. Ray works at Antone's record store and helps Richard bring his ideas to fruition. Enjoy!
We're joined by Patsy Dolan Bouressa, clinical director of the SIMS Foundation to talk about mental health and addiction and help available to musicians. The SIMS Foundation's primary mission is to provide these services to the Austin music industry.
Bill Bentley joins us to talk about his new book Smithsonian Rock and Roll: Live and Unseen. It would take too much space here to list all of the musicians Bill has worked with over the past with while in the music industry over the past 40 years, but if anyone can write a book about Rock and Roll with authority it is certainly him. We talk Doug Sahm, The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, and The Flaming Lips to name a few. I hope you enjoy the podcast and make sure you check out the book.
This episode's featured artist is Ought. We share Disgraced In America from their new album Room Inside The World.
