Samuel Flynn Scott – Bunnies on Ponies and The Phoenix Foundation

leave a comment »

I spoke with one Samuel Flynn Scott a few nights ago and discussed his work with Phoenix Foundation and Bunnies on Ponies. We had such a great chat (and a lengthy one) that I have three (yes three!) podcasts worth of material.

Well I can’t pace myself and leave a little to the imagination. Oh no. I am just going to let it all hang out and give you all of the podcasts at once.

The first podcast is a Bunnycast … with Samuel discussing Straight Answer Machine his most recent effort with Bunnies on Ponies. Also featured are some of my personal favorites from the album. 

The next two are part of a double session of a Phoenixcast. The first part features the interview with Samuel and  the songs discussed during the interview. The second part is just my being self-indulgent playing many of my favorite songs by The Phoenix Foundation.

I hope you enjoy them! I know I certainly enjoyed everything that went into these podcasts. Especially the part about speaking with one of my all-time favorite musicians.
