WELCOME TO THE SHOW
My name is Steve Owens and I meet a lot of people; sometime in my travels, sometimes in my own home town. Several times (quite by accident), I have stumbled into what I consider to be fascinating stories. So after way too many got away, I decided to start recording them. Some of these conversations will be fascinating ONLY to me. Some will be fascinating to you too. In the end, I guess this podcast is just an excuse for me to get to travel, meet, and talk to more people. So if you are so inclined…
Walk with me, down Fascination Street!
This week my guest is Ed Asner. Depending on your age; you know him from The Mary Tyler Moore show, Lou Grant, even the Pixar blockbuster UP. We talk about The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, his touring one man show: A Man And His Prostate, and we even talk about Ed’s newest book: The Grouchy Historian. Last month Ed Asner allegedly passed away in a car accident. I ASSURE YOU THAT THIS IS NOT TRUE. I KNOW THIS FOR 100% CERTAIN. THIS WAS A RIDICULOUS HOAX.

There are a couple of clips of his songs within, but be sure to purchase his music from wherever you buy music. Amazon link below.

Raelyn Nelson was sweet enough to invite me into her green room before a show in San Antonio a few weeks ago. We talked about her new band Raelyn Nelson Band and her new duo MMHMM. We talked a little about her iconic grand father, her famous musical family, and even how she pulled her kids out of a “This Is Us” style house fire! Support both of her new bands, they are each unique and face melting in their own way!
