    SOAL Night Live- New Episdoes

    I figured I would start a thread for my Saturday night "talk show"/podcast. I've done a few threads here asking for questions for it and alluded to it. I had some spare time on my hands since getting laid off (gee, thanks Covid) so to give me something to do on the weekends I decided to take a cue from guys like Rick Beato and do my own online show. Considerably more laid back and on the cheap than anything Rick does, but it really boils down to content and a lot of great info about these artists has come to light in the past few months doing these. It's one where I do a Zoom conference, stream it live on Facebook and then upload it to my YouTube page as an archive.

    The first episode was just chatting with bandmates and local friends. Pretty quick it dawned on me it could be pretty cool if I reached out to various musical friends on my list, and some actors and entertainers too. It's not like I wanna talk prog all the time, this show is more than that, though that's the bulk of it. People have been encouraging me to do something like this for years and the Zoom era came along at the right time for a guy like me that hates to transcribe phone interviews. I consider it a podcast that you can watch, though I'd probably suggest you listen to it while you do something else! It's just a bunch of talking heads in boxes, but we're there if you want to watch.

    Here's a link to past shows. Some prog related episodes you might like are with Mike Keneally, Nick D'Virgillio, Tom Brislin, Marco Minnemann & Randy McStine and Jake Livgren. The one with Jellyfish/Lickerish Quartet keyboardist Roger Joseph Manning Jr is another prog folks might dig too....

    Coming up over the next month we've got interviews with musical renaissance man Fernando Perdomo, Yes bassist Billy Sherwood, NEARFest Memories with Rob & Chad + guests, Wings guitarist Laurence Juber and Vaylor Trucks discussing the Allman Brothers family tree and more. If you could subscribe to my YouTube page, I'd sure appreciate it.

    Here's this week's show with Fernando. We discussed all sorts of stuff. Like classic prog bands, vintage vs modern amps, top 5 underrated guitarists, Echo In The Canyon, his work with Dave Kerzner, recording his own album at Abbey Road, his top 10 album picks and much more.

    Next week, my guest is Billy Sherwood. Any questions for him?

    ^^^^

    Good show; Fernando's a good interview in both an entertaining and informative way. Especially in the Top 10 albums segment, where he elaborated on why the albums were special to him. For instance, when he held up the first "McCartney" solo album I reacted in a similar manner to you, not one that many people would pick from his solo career. However, he then alluded to "Ram" being a better album overall, yet the fact that Paul played all the instruments and that it wasn't just a "Pop" release, made it a special influence in his mind. Also, giving the somewhat unheralded and oft-criticized BS&T 4 album some deserved respect was good to hear (it's more than "Go Down Gambling. you know?).

    Enjoyed the show.

    Thanks! That was a fun one. At it's best I like this show to feel like a casual chat between friends and that one was.

    Thanks for all that dropped by! We covered a lot of bases in addition to the PE questions submitted. We basically started when Billy met Chris Squire, which alone is a cool story, and go through the 90s, album by album. I think we uncovered a few nuggets about each that might not have been mentioned before. We discussed Yes since he's been in the bass role too including the possibilities of a new Yes album and what it would be like. And much more....

    Next week my guests are our old friends Rob LaDuca and Chad Hutchinson. NEARFest memories we call it, so drop by and relive them with us and mention some of your faves too. We will have some special guests dropping by too that you might have seen perform there.

    The Billy Sherwood interview was awesome. Covered a lot of territory with a musician who has played a huge field. Donít blame him for avoiding the Yes RORHOF controversy other than met with Geddy who said he should be playing. Billy simply said politics. I may see I can get personal opinion about the sound of that show, from his vantage point and the TV if he heard it. He also talked to Bruford backstage and had a good time, I can imagine.
