TMP 127 George Porter In the Groove

The renowned bassist, along with fellow Meters Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli, and Zigaboo Modeliste defined New Orleans funk and R’n’B from the late 1960s on. From the explosion of classics like "Cissy Strut" and "Hey Pocky A-Way" for Allen Toussaint’s label, to session work with Dr. John, LaBelle, Paul McCartney, and Robert Palmer, the Meters are the gold standard. George has gone on to work with a stellar list of artists including David Byrne, Tori Amos, and John Scofield, as well as all-star groups the 7 Walkers, Voice of the Wetlands, and his own Runnin’ Pardners. He survived the 75-76 Rolling Stones. The Troubled Men should be a piece of cake. Topics include early voting, hate stuttering, a birthday speedball, an MRI nightmare, a clean checkup, a new record, early influences, guitar lessons, a new route, Poppi Francis, a frat house training ground, New Orleans music, Meters orthodoxy, touring the US, Route 66, the Ivanhoe, the Nightcap, a record deal, the New Barbarians, a hospital wakeup, a cocaine green light, a French audience, sampling, publishing irregularities, a breakup, production credits, Allen’s passing, a Superdome nightmare, Johnny Vidacovich, shake dancers, the Trio, Eric Traub, live tapes, A Taste of New Orleans, David and Walter Lastie, and much more.

TMP 124 Phil DeGruy's 17-String Theory

The guitar wizard, satirist, and provocateur’s record titles like “Innuendo Out the Other” and “Hello Dali” give you an idea of his sense of humor. Collaborations like “Just Duet” with heavyweights Larry Coryell, Mike Stern, and Charlie Hunter demonstrate his place in the guitar virtuoso community. Phil traces his journey from studying with master teacher Hank Mackie to creating a custom guitar/harp inspired by 7-string guru Lenny Breau. Phil has always followed his own path in music. After his sojourn with the Troubled Men, let’s hope he can find his way back. Topics include a sore winner, a harmonica player, the new Vegas stadium, “Casino,” the VagiPlug, in-person classes, a positive test, LSU culture, Squeaky Fromme revisited, a scary trip to Applebee’s, subversive stickers, David Vitter bed shopping, a second act, Filiberto’s World of Strings, a golden age, Steve Masakowski, Emily Remler, the Guitar Ensemble, fanned frets, playing for Chet Atkins, a murder allegation, music magazines, Steve Vai, Les White, Steely Dan, a prescient title, a bunny robbery, a Gong Show, a birthday surprise, a custom design, and much more.
