Ever since Dan started the show, heâ€™s been trying to get Ben Tinsley on the mic to talk. Itâ€™s been over two years, and it finally happened. Ben and Dan talk about their mutual history together, playing the same clubs and bills together, the strength of their little community for a short time, and all the life that happens to you as you get older. The discussion includes: guitars, love and respect for their fellow musician friends, recording a record completely on your own, and how to keep being creative amidst the many demands of adulthood. Happy holidays to everyone, and a Happy New Year from 25 Oâ€™Clock!
Dan met Thom years ago when Thom had just moved to Philadelphia, in a big city for the first time. They would run into each other on and off for nearly a decade. Now, Dan gets the full story on Thom. They talk about Thom's rural roots, his love of Django Reinhart, making a whole record through the voice of a character, and his latest album, 'Marvin The Giant'. It's the first album that Thom has ever put his real name on, and it's (obviously) an important one.
