Episode 21: The Limitations and Liberations of Genre

Do you like the sound of spring thunderstorms? Do you like conversations about aesthetic conventions? Do you wish the two could be combined somehow?

Well, join my old friend and accomplished musician John Charney in the lovely and beautiful St. Michael’s Cemetery in Loretto, Pennsylvania as we sit and discuss musical genres during a passing thunderstorm.  In the process, we don’t get hit by lightening but we do get all nostalgic and John busts out an amazing story about meeting Mike Patton.  He also plays for us.

John is a musician, musical director, and  music teacher.  He records and performs and will someday soon have a web site.  As of right now, you can find him at johncharneymusic@yahoo.com.

As always, I swear.
