BS with Kevin Hale

BS with Kevin Hale

December 20, 2018

Today on the show I hang out with my buddy Kevin Hale. Kevin hosts a podcast in Louisville called Shooting From The Lip and we break down how he got into podcasting, what his show is about and why he got started. Kevin has some cool stories about choosing go sports ball over music when he was younger and why he regrets that decision. We also discuss the local Louisville music scene, some of the amazing players we have in the city, political observations (which doesn't last long) and me talking smack about Kevin before we met. There's also a big bottle of wine involved as well as a run in on the show!

BS with Sydney Magers

December 13, 2018

On today’s episode, I get to hang out with my awesome new musical sister, Sydney Magers, who is a phenomenal singer and one half of the two lead vocalists of The Juice Box Heroes. Sydney was awesome hang and has many greats stories including not only being a theater kid, but starting at five years old! She was cast in Hairspray which landed her a scholarship to the University of Northern Colorado. She has seen way too many things to list here, but this is an episode you don’t want to miss, mainly because we have too many accented squirrels flying out of our faceholes.

Social Media Issues – Pros, cons, TMI & staying in touch.

Stories From The Stage – Hawaiian Princess blows out a knee or two.  

What Are You Listening To? Lake Street Dive, Duke Ellington and Alt-J.

BS with Aalics Bronson

December 6, 2018

This week on the show I hang with my buddy Aalics Bronson. Aalics is a monster bass player and we talk about all kinds of behind the scenes music business-y type stuff. We all also discuss his weird circle hand movements while he plays, his bouncing back and forth between Louisville and NYC, as well as his early start to his bass playing. Aalics is super busy with playing bass for Jean Marx Express, touring off and on in Europe, teching for a couple of known artists, behind the scenes production and part time managing a band! He has his hands in a lot of fires and loves all of it. He’s a cool dude, so busy in fact, Sebastian made his way into our conversation this week.

BS with Frank Green

BS with Frank Green

November 29, 2018

Today on the show, I hang out with my buddy, Frank Green. Frank and I don’t know each other very well, but we had a lot of stuff to talk about. So much in fact, we never got to Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Are You Listening To. But that’s okay because Frank will be back in a few weeks. We do talk about gigging, Frank growing up playing bass, our dear friend Kevin McCreery, how he landed into a band that got a record deal within a month of him joining, the amazing amount of talent in the Louisville music scene and dealing with death and depression. This is one of those rare episodes where we get a little deep so you don’t want to miss this one. We even touch on concept records!

BS with Mitch Kirkpatrick

BS with Mitch Kirkpatrick

November 15, 2018

This week I sit down with a former student who is now a good friend, Mitch Kirkpatrick. I met Mitch several years ago when he was teenage drummer looking to become better at his craft. He was like a power plant of energy behind the drums but had no focus. I pointed him in the right direction and he worked hard and it paid off. We talk about what he’s been up to, living in Los Angeles and Nashville and where is life is now. And if course, 2 drummers together create tons of squirrel moments!

Social Media Issues – Mitch has stayed away but still has some observations.

Stories From The Stage – Some “song requesters” take thing a little too far.

What Are You Listening To – Mitch is really into the new Eminem album.

BS with David Payne

BS with David Payne

November 1, 2018

Jamie Bruce Harris. December 13, 1972 - October 25, 2018. Rest easy, my friend.

Today on the show, I have a very long, detailed and sarcastic conversation with David Payne. David owns Louisville Music Studios and we talk about how he started it and why. But even before we get to that, we talk about David’s upbringing because he has a cool story. We get into how he ended up in Louisville, his musical background and take some serious jabs at each other. We have a lot of fun and there’s tons of immature jokes so consider yourself warned!

Because I wanted to get David’s story out there, there are no Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Are You Listening To this week. This is just an in-depth conversation with David Payne about who he is and what makes him tick. I think you guys will dig this episode, even with all the crap David and I fling at each other.

BS With Todd Blankenship

BS With Todd Blankenship

October 25, 2018

On today’s episode, I hang with my buddy, Todd Blankenship. We talk about a few different things, like how we met seeing as I don't really remember, but mostly his passion and the work he does for the film industry. Todd is from Louisville but moved to LA to become a full-time writer and talks about where he'll be moving to next because LA traffic sucks. I learn all kinds of cool things like what a gaffer really is, a grip and a key grip – those odd titles that are in the credits of every movie.

There’s no segments to this show as I just wanted to have a conversation with Todd and get to know him better. So, no Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Am I Listening to but I drop a couple nuggets of that throughout the show.  This was a fun one and I hope you guys dig it as much as I do. Todd is an awesome dude and it was great to hang and chat with him.

FINALLY!! THE BAR STAR PODCAST HAS A WEBSITE!! The address is below!!

Today on the show, I give my opinion about the past because of a reconnection I had a couple weeks ago with a former band member.

I hope you guys dig my Dime Store Philosophy this week.

Social Media Issues – Know it all’s that don’t know anything.
