Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain

On June 8, 2018, chef, author, television host and more, Anthony Bourdain died at age 61. This week, Jim and Greg revisit their 2008 interview with Bourdain about his love for food and rock and roll.

Anthony, or Tony as he liked to be called, explained to Jim and Greg that there are a lot of connections between members of the food world and the music world, the first of which is simply the hours. Both subcultures are nocturnal pleasure-seekers who often frequent the same greasy spoons and the same dive bars. But on a more cerebral level, music geeks and foodies are both obsessed, both opinionated, and both hate Billy Joel. Tony explained that when he served up grub to guests he preferred the tunes of Edith Piaf, Serge Gainsbourg, and even Connie Francis.




Margo Price

Margo Price is part of a new generation on the Nashville scene that infuse authentic country roots with strong songwriting chops. Her first album, Midwest Farmer's Daughter was recorded at the famous Sun Studios in Memphis, and released by Jack White's Third Man Records in 2016. Her latest, 2017's All American Made, encompasses a variety of American roots genres, including outlaw country and soul, but she's quick to distance herself from ther current trend towards Americana music, noting that“There's a lot of people in the mainstream that are being turned on their heads right now, and really grasping for authenticity. I think it's only a matter of time before the Americana/Outlaw bubble bursts.”Price joined Jim and Greg for an interview and performance at the Goose Island Barrelhouse in Chicago.
