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!
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!

Shortly before HBO’s Barry came out; I had the opportunity to have lunch with one of it’s stars; John Pirruccello (Det. John Loach).
