The Ledge, Episode 26: Director Gorman Bechard
I recently spent almost a full week in Minneapolis, and much of that time was spent following the Color Me Obsessed film crew as they interviewed musicians, DJ's, record store owners, and fans (more on that in a later post). On a rare break in filming during my last day in town, director Gorman Bechard took an hour out of his busy schedule to sit down with The Ledge. Besides picking out the music for the show, Bechard discussed his filmed biography of the Replacements, his fantastic book The Second Greatest Story Ever Told, and the music that has inspired his life and work. My time with Gorman and his crew was a wonderful experience, and I have nothing but appreciation for lettine me feel right at home throughout those hectic days. I'd also like to thank my old friend Matt Mauch for giving us use of his beautiful home for the taping of this episode. As always, you can subscribe to The Ledge through iTunes, listen to it at realpunkradio this Friday at 9 am/pm (central time), or download it at here.
