BA: Part 1 [Episode 003]

July 16, 2015

In this episode you'll hear from BA Rosenblum. He talks about listening to music from an early age, quitting high school, serving in the Army, re-learning a musical instrument, and the album that saved his life.


BA and I have been close since we were about 6 years old, and it's always interesting for me to hear his thoughts--I learned some new things in this interview, and I hope you'll enjoy it.

The interview is being broken into two episodes--this is the first half of the discussion; the second half will be posted in the near future.

Biche, aka Mark Schwarz: Part 1 [Episode 002]

July 3, 2015

In this episode, Mark “Biche” Schwarz talks about going to law school in his 40s, talking a classmate into quitting law school, maintaining focus on work, running a recording studio, and the inaccessibility of past versions of ourselves.

He also muses about music he likes/liked, including The Who, Van Morrison, and The Police—and the unique sonic character of Ghost in the Machine. And he talks about having/developing a musical ear.

In this episode, you’ll hear a little more chatter from me than I’d like, in part because of the setting, but also because it was a now-rare opportunity to spend time talking with Biche, and we’ve been close since we were little kids, so it’s easy to get excited and fall into “conversational” mode rather than “interview” mode.

There’s a second part of this conversation that will be released later.

Recorded outdoors in scenic Uptown, Chicago.

Enjoy Biche!
