Troubled Men #10 Glyn Styler's Safe House

Show Notes

The Men escape the Ring Room for the Safe House. Any port in a storm. They have the cultural iconoclast, Glyn Styler as their first guest. He plays it pretty close to the vest, but they manage to drag out of him some comments on his origin story. The Men also discuss murder in New Orleans, funeral home yelp reviews, party invitations, whistle girl, train rides to Florence and Madrid, the crushing solitude of a recording studio in England, copping in Copenhagen, convalescent communion, and a chance encounter with Timothy Leary. Click on the link to Glyn Styler's signature song,"You Killed My Love", with a still from his starring role in Doris Wishman's film, "Satan Was a Lady". It's sublime.
