Bonus content!!

I want to ask you to come to our farewell show. It will be a night of thanksgiving but funkytown style so it's called FTP Presents: Fakesgiving 2019. If you have ever listened to, been a guest of or a part of the show I would love you to be there. The lineup is perfect. There will be some sort of open mic at first. If you want to be a part of that email me or message me because time slots are limited. We will have Wrex doing his thing. He is full of gratitude. He even has a song that goes " I wake up early in the morning counting blessings" Wrex is cool and if you if you haven't seen him this is a perfect setting. Joe Savage is a staple on the show. He comes on the 1st podcast of the year every year to make sure we kick off the show in style and with intent. Joe Savage is some sort of Texas Buddhist Beatnick to me. He some how manages to wrap poetry with Texas twang and a zen like out look. To close out the show there couldn't be a better band to represent the funkytownpodcast spirit. Garage Barrage is one of those bands that brought me pure joy. Their music is infectious, sometimes silly and just strikes every right chord in my soul. My love for that band is as pure as the music they make from their garage while drinking Zimas and eating pizza. See you November 9th at Main at South Side. Show starts at 8:30PM

Joe Savage El Camino

Ok so first off the first few minutes of dialogue is littered with electronic feedback. Dumb cell phones. Fight through it. It clears up with only subtle interference sprinkled throughout the show to keep you on you toes. The show is really fun. We sit with Joe Savage and talk about his trek to Spain. 

First song - I’ve got My Walls

Shoot the shit

Weekend stuff

Spain trip and 500 mile walk “St. James way”

How’s Joe gonna get to Spain for the pilgrimage?

A miracle. 

Joe wasn’t scared, he’s a traveler.

Two people died on the trail.

Joe is fluent in Spanish.

Story of the Camino 

The Camino has been going on since the year 800 a.d.

Third song- Find Someone Else to Fight (named by the funktown podcast)

Whitnye Raquel is a local singer songwriter and is also know for her Van Build project. She invited Susie Ramone and myself over to her house for dinner made by Justin Hill, a podcast and a serenade. We sat on the back porch and had a laid back conversation with a couple of funky Fort Worthians. You could say we "shot the sh*t" for a bit. Whitnye is on all the music platforms and you can find an Ep called "All My Truths" and a single called Snowmobiles with a b side Promise. The opening track tonight is from the EP and it's called Easy. Its one of my favorites and it really showcases her smokey voice and her ability for a groovy melody. We get to know Whitnye and Justin a bit. Talk about the EP, working at the White Elephant Saloon and the difference between a tank and a stocked pond. We also talk small towns, Susie's trip to the Double Wide and what is a diptych. The middle track is Dreams and its a kick to watch Whitnye and Justin play and sing together(You can catch her and often them all over the Metroplex). In the second half we get to our mention in Fort Worth Magazine, Emails, my new favorite podcast, memories we have that no one else remembers, Whitnye's appearance on Toast and Jam and of course Van Life/ Van Build. Susie and I had an incredible night visiting with these two. The dinner was great, the house was lovely, the company was so wonderful and the songs we got to record for the show sound so good. I really hope you enjoy getting to know these two if you didn't already. The closing track is also off of the EP called Riveter and if you like to find out more you can find links and dates on Whitnye's website and you can find her on all the social medias.
