MikeyPod 5 | The Orange Show

This week, I take you on a soundseeing tour of The Orange Show which is one of the coolest places in Houston. I am just fascinated with this place. Check out the photographs I took with my beloved roomate’s camera.

Also, this week I start a new weekly segment featuring Laurence Simon’s 100 word stories, I’m thrilled that Mr. Simon is willing to participate in my show. Please check out his blog, and his podcast.

Showdown in Marfa– I mentioned this article in the show. Let me know what you think. Anyone up for a road trip?

Shout out also to Chris Doelle who can be found at PMC Top 10, Riding with the window down, and Lone Star Gridiron. YAY for local podcasters!

**beware: I am recording on a new set up this week, and discovered that the music is at a much higher level than the speech portions. Sorry, I know how annoying that is. I will learn how to aviod that in time for next week’s show. Of course, I am always open to your suggestions!**

MikeyPod 3 | Midtown Farmer’s Market

This weeks episode includes a visit to the Midtown Farmer’s Market with my pal Frank. I talked to Monica Graham from The Animal Farm , sampled some baked nummies from The Center, and talked to the Culinary Diva herself, Monica Pope, who helped to dispell some myths about how the farmer’s market began.

Also in this episode, podsafe music from Climber and Sweet Billy Pilgrim, two of my current obsessions.

In my hurry to get this show done, I neglected to mention my new friend Scott Mindeaux who was kind enough to help me get lots of stuff worked out last week when I was having a hissyfit over at qPodder trying to get my show posted and my feed straightened out. Check out his show, he does a weather forecast for all of his listeners, I thought that was just cool as shit!

Until next week!


MikeyPod 2 | Artist Roberto Cervantes

WOW! It was a pain in the ass to get this thing posted, but at last, here it is!

This week I interviewed my pal Roberto Cervantes, a Houston based artist, builder of furniture, painter of murals, animator and all around bad-ass. We decided to let him be DJ so he picked some of his current favorite songs to share with us. This show is longer than usual (usual?? this is only the second episode) but with the songs inside, I figured, what the hell?

Featured music:

  • The Lake-Antony and the Johnsons from The Lake EP
  • O’oh-Yoko Ono from OnoBox (disc 6)
  • Till it’s Time for You to Go- Cleo Laine (Buffy Sainte-Marie cover) from At Her Finest
