Funkytown Podcast

Covering the goings ons in near south side Fort Worth Tx with an emphasis on the music.

Joseph Wayne Miller has a new album called Tumbleweed and its pretty dadgum great. I heard the album several weeks ago and couldn't wait for Joseph to come on. Some of the reviews label the album as country, folk and psychedelic pop. After listening several times I figure that is as good of a description as any. The songs are solid. Written very well to the core. With an acoustic guitar and drummer/audio engineer (Peter Wierenga) they headed to Dripping Springs Tx to make a record with hitmaker Taylor Tatsch. Today we have Joseph and Peter in studio along with Joe Tacke and Zachary Zanetich. We talk about the new record a lot as well as his video Spacey. If you haven't seen it, please do, it's great! The first song you hear on the show is Spacey. We talk some song writing, soundcloud rappers, and JWM alter ego Braden Bradley and his YouTube hit Summertime. JWM is also married to a Canadian who is from Russia. So naturally we talk about Russian Christmas and how they celebrate. Sister Cities to Sister Podcast. Where is our sister podcast and what does it look like? The middle track is No More Magic. Another great song with my fantastic interpretation! We have a new email intro song, an email from the Coolest Lady in Funkytown, 80 movies and finally Zach Libs. In the back half we discover that there is an actor with the same name as JWM who has passed away. There are some video tributes to the actor online but look and see whose photo was used. Also what is a Sloppy Jeff? You can see Joseph Wayne Miller this Friday October 5th at Dreamy Life Happy Hour at the Fairmount Library. You can find his music anywhere you find music. Itunes, Spotify and of course https://jeauxmiller.bandcamp.com/album/tumbleweed We close the show out with "Can't Tell" Seriously grab this album. It's so good.

Jesse Gage is the guest this week. The day after his Ep Release show at Main At South Side he decided to hang with me and Joe Tacke and talk about the show, as well as his brand new Ep "5pm on Anna St" https://jessegage.bandcamp.com/album/5-pm-on-anna-st The show opens like the Ep with track 1 "Jelly" We talk about the show and the ep for the first bit and then we change topics. Does the Fort Worth music scene need some critical voices? Is there any competition or influence to do better? The middle track is "Weather" and with no Zach this week that means no Zach libs. We do have emails! We got an email from Heaven. Big Heaven. Check them out this weekend. 2 shows!! We also get an email from Marlin Von Bungy and that sends us into 70's movie talk which sends down a wormhole of American and World history. The last track is "Tired of Myself" Find out if Jesse is indeed tired of himself. Check out the Ep. It's really good. Also if you can, see Jesse live. Totally worth your time!

This weeks guest is Kevin Aldridge. He just came on to hang out with us. He missed us! The first track is off the new War Party record called Sweetest Intentions. We catch up with Kevin. There are a couple of big shows at MASS this weekend. Friday its Neptune Locals, Mean Motor Scooter and Sally Majestic. Then on Saturday its a show I have been so looking forward to. Garage Barrage, Juma Spears, Henry the Archer and the Me-Thinks! Kevin plans events at MASS and is responsibe for Beers for Beto. Ok so the meat of the show is from an article in Fort Worth Magazine titled 40 things every Forth Worthian must do. We go through the list and see how many things we've done, like to do or WTF? The middle track is by Daniel Markham called Favorite Band from the Violitionist Sessions. (For more info on the Violitionist Sessions check out this weeks episode of the Jerry Jonestown Massacre) The second half of the show we finish our bucket list, play a new Zach Libs theme song from Matt Thomas aka Robotuner aka Redpants and remember Burt Reynolds. Also what if we remade Smokey and the Bandit using only local musicians. Who would be cast as who? I will say this. I made a mistake casting Jerry Reed. The person I suggested would be great. I stand by that but the perfect person to play Cletus "Snowman" Snow has to be Chea Cuevas. I mean he is a big rig driver in real life with his good puppy dog. So Ignore who I say and put Chea in his place. Who shall be cast as the Bandit, Frog, Big and Little Enis, Sheriff Buford T Justice and Junior? Listen to find out!! Last track is an amazing song. As we get older and reflect and get nostalgic, let us listen to Jacob Furr. "Life comes at you Fast." As always Keep Listening Never Stop #suckitstubbs

This week we find ourselves (Zachary Zanetich and I) at the Tin Panther to hang out with Jessi Foster from the Fort Worth Weekly and Babes in Boyland. I’ll admit up front this one got away from us. Jessi is very easy to talk to and is an endless vessel when it comes to Fort Worth stories and knowledge. The opening song this week is by old local favorites the Hannah Barbarians with “Midnight”. We start the convo off with some vacay chatter from J Fo. ( Come on! That's a great sentence ) Jessi Foster works at the Fort Worth Weekly as sales but a lot of you may know her as the lady that wants you to RSVP for the Weekly Awards.  Hee Hee. So we talk about the Weekly, her role there and the best of, which voting is getting ready to close. We spend time with some of the ins and outs of the best of issue, the voting, the categories and such. We also get into some of the award ceremony and voting. We also talk about service industry jobs, Susie Ramon’s Ketchup, her (Jessi’s) appearance on JJTM, Azle Tx, the Barbershop and Chea’s birthday at the Grotto (RIP Grotto). That's just the first half. The middle song is sung by Jessi with Matthew Broyles on guitar. It’s a Huffer cover “Never Know”. After the break we talk about the last Huffer show and what Jessi was doing while history was being made at MASS. Speaking of Main at South Side, October 27th is Masquerade.  What is Masquerade? Listen to find out. Vote Stacie Hammonds! Garage Barrage’s first show! Quit smoking! Drink Jarritos! Heckle without hate! Arts Goggle. Alex and Mountain of Smoke! Post Malone and SoundCloud Rappers. These are some of the things you will hear us discuss. It's a fun episode and I found Jessi to be greatness. It is good to sit and chat with people about this town and what we love and hate about it. Mostly Love! The closing track is by Mountain of Smoke “Wise Owl” https://www.fwweekly.com/best-of-ballot-2018/

When you walk into W Durable Goods it is almost like walking back in time. Not only the decor but the vibe. Daniel Wright is the owner and drives a truck that says No Hurry on the back of it. He takes that attitude into the shop with him. No hustle and bustle or rush. Just a super nice guy bringing you honest goods that last. Some are hand made and some are rare jewels you cant find anywhere else. The show kicks off with Vodeo's single You're Making Me Nervous then a small car trip to the shop. I found a YouTube ad and it gives a brief intro into Daniel and W Durable Goods and then we chat for an hour with a song by Simon Flory (I Need to Work On My Songs) in the middle and The Cutthroat Finches (Ideology Ends) at the end. Some of the things we hit on were how he got into making things, the buildings history ( OB Macaroni building), the glory days of Fort Worth 1930s-50s, faux buildings, Fort Worth as a child, Tandy Center subway rides to the ice rink, creating a business, the hustle and grind, the love of vingage, local music, venues, sofar and so much more. I had such a good time getting to know Daniel. I can relate to his spirit and his love of the old and his love of Fort Worth. There is lots of Fort Worth love in this episode. If you are looking for something cool there is tons of it in his shop. He also has lots of useful items and a lot of hand made goods. I highly suggest you check out his shop. Tell him we sent you.

Ansley

Ansley Dougherty is a local Fort Worth Singer Songwriter. She has a new album out called Rituals. She also is the front woman for Panic Volcanic, teaches at school of rock and host a local monthly radio show. In other words Ansley is Amazing and I couldn't be more happy to have her on this week to talk about her new album and release show. The opening track is Lucky Smoke. There is also a great video for the song you should check out. Joe Tacke is back from his west coast tour with Mean Motor Scooter and we talk a little Jello. We take a walk down memory lane to the Cellar where I first saw Animal Spirit and Panic Volcanic play. Remember Frisky Volcanic? Did you know that Ansley studied economics? How is it being a part of Hand Drawn Records and how was the record plant tour? Big props to all the players on this record. This sound is fantastic. Big shout out to Taylor Tatsch out in Dripping Springs who is making really great records out there. The middle song is Lighthouse. This song has a cool perspective and I think you will enjoy it. The second half we have a little fun with Zach Libs, we play would you rather (blind or deaf), regional dialects, pets, and we end with November Fest talk. This event is incredible and if you don't know about it, you need to so tune in. The last song is my favorite of the album. It's called Come Alive. Its amazing and has a good story. I think you will enjoy this episode. We had so much fun making it. Ansley is one of the coolest people in town. I am super proud to call her a friend and I am so proud she represents our fair city.
