Show Notes

Her tenure dates back to the earliest days of the Circle Bar. In fact, she likes to say that she came with the building. The former tennis pro and dentist-turned-bartender encountered everyone from Lee Circle winos and touring hipsters to counterculture royalty like Keith Richards and Hunter Thompson. After her time in Austin hanging out with Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bill Hicks, and Sam Kinison and her years as den mother for the circular clubhouse for wayward adults, Caroline is well acquainted with barfly foolishness. It’s just like old times as she joins the Troubled Men.

Topics include a hiatus, celebrity spectators, a mayoral recall, Noonie Man, juvenile crime solutions, failing school zones, the Mission District, 2 dominatrices and a priest, Austin in the 1970s, common interests, an Antone’s jam session, Rank & File, a moveable feast, special catering, babysitting Roky Erickson, the Fleur de Lis restaurant, Ben Ellman, a Hank Williams III gig, Kelly Keller, absinthe parties, Jim “the Hound” Marshall, heavy pours, celebrity bartenders, Andre Williams, a close call, Michael Ward’s nighttime circuit, Mike Hurtt, barkeep discretion, and much more.

Intro music: "Just Keeps Raining" by Styler/Coman

Break Music: "The Analyst" from "Loose Strings" by Carlo Nuccio

Outro music: "Sensible Shoes" from "Little Houses in Space" by the Geraniums

TMP 120 Johnny Sansone: Speaking In Tongues

As an itinerant bluesman, the singer and harmonica ace sought out giants like James Cotton and Junior Wells to uncover the mysteries of the dark art. The former collegiate swimming star did stints in Colorado, Chicago, and Austin playing with the likes of John Lee Hooker and Ronnie Earl before landing in New Orleans as a seasoned songwriter and bandleader. Johnny has a dozen award-winning solo releases, as well as celebrated collaborations with Anders Osborne and John Fohl, and is a member of the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars with Tab Benoit, Cyril Neville and Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. He may have dropped the “Jumping Johnny” moniker years ago, but on the Troubled Men Podcast, it’s not about how high you can jump, it’s about how low you can go. Topics include a new high, a deadly storm, Gompers, “Uncut Gems,” a law school brouhaha, a prayer call, an Estes rocket launch, meeting Joe Cabral and Rod Hodges, the Colorado connection, shaving down, a favorite stroke, Mark Spitz, Fort Collins, harmonica science, Howard Levy, elevation, soloists, a Bo Diddley story, a nickname explained, “Poor Man’s Paradise,” the Subdudes, a breakthrough record, Trina Shoemaker, “Homeland,” Luther and Cody Dickinson, playing lefty, a Blaze Foley bio pic, Ethan Hawke, Charlie Sexton, breakups, and much more.
