Ray Carr from Cleveland’s WCSB 89.3 did another phone interview with me for his radio show on April 29, 2014. We chatted about my latest roadtrip from Phoenix to San Francisco where the American Giants team got to see and shoot a number of Muffler Men. One of the high points of the trip was the stop in Pahrump, NV to see the former Texaco Big Friend. There are only a handful of these statues left. I also spoke about my favorite stop on this trip which was in Hayward, CA where Bruce Kennedy has a collection of four Muffler Men. I really appreciate Bruce’s taking time to share the stories behind each statue and letting us get some unique shots of each of them.
As I did with my first interview with Ray Carr, I have added video footage to the audio so that listeners have visual references to what is being discussed. Carr’s program features in-depth, live interviews with movers-and-shakers: politicians, journalists, athletes, and folks like me who are interested in Americana. He also features rare oldies music and comedy from the 1950s and 1960s. It was a pleasure to be on his show.
