Jimmie Bones Interview

Monday, February 19th, 2018 by The Professor

Jimmie “Bones” Trombly is probably best known for his role as keyboardist for Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band, but he’s been a part of Robert Bradley’s Blackwater Surprise, and played on and co-produced the final album of bluesman R. L. Burnside, among his many credits.  

Currently on tour with Kid Rock and heading to the Royal Farms Arena on March 3rd, Jimmie has also released his first solo project “Snakebit and Wandering” on Funky D Records. Jimmie kindly took some time to talk to The Professor from WLOY’s Monday Morning Blues show in advance of their arrival in town.  From getting the guitar of Wayne Kramer (MC5) on his album to the joy of touring by private jet, they covered a lot.  Check out the interview below, and pickup a copy of Jimmie’s CD here

Teju Cole, an award-winning writer, art historian, and photographer who is currently the Distinguished Writer in Residence at Bard College and photography critic of the New York Times Magazine. As a public intellectual, Cole is well positioned to bring together campus conversations about urban engagement, civic engagement, global engagement, and racial justice.

He is the author of two books, a novella, Every Day is for the Thief, named a book of the year by the New York Times, the Globe and Mail, NPR, and the Telegraph, and shortlisted for the PEN/Open Book Award, and a novel, Open City, which also featured on numerous book of the year lists, and won the PEN/Hemingway Award, the New York City Book Award for Fiction, the Rosenthal Award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the New York Public Library Young Lions Award, and the Ondaatje Prize of the Royal Society of Literature.

Hannibal Buress Interview

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 by The Professor

hannibal-buress-color-2-courtesy-of-comedy-central-jpg It started with a tweet by Hannibal (@hannibalburess) asking if anyone in the Baltimore/DC area wanted to have him come on their show and rap. Challenge accepted, intrepid DJ Matt Weinberg ’17 chased the dream. A few hours later, arrangements were being made and the next morning we had Hannibal on the phone from DC. He didn’t rap, but he did talk about a lot of things – from kicking (or maybe not) Flavor Flav in the face to helping Matt and co-host Mike Dayao ’18 name their show. It’s now officially “The Garbage Can and The Man”, in case you’re wondering. Hannibal Buress will be in Baltimore for a show at the Meyerhoff tomorrow night, but for now, you can hear him here!

Swamp Cabbage Interview

Monday, October 3rd, 2016 by The Professor

Swamp Cabbage Jive CDIt’s taken several tries to catch the slippery Swamp Cabbage and get them in the studio. We’ve had them play a show in Florida, had Walter Parks stop by a couple of times solo, waved “Hi” to Jagoda on the LIE, but Jim just won’t leave the swamp. Finally, we did it. I’m still not quite sure what happened, or if we actually talked about music because we were laughing so much. One thing is sure, if they ever decide to put away the Greco-Roman wrestling costumes and dock the iron lung, Swamp Cabbage has a second career in comedy. Listen in as Walter Parks, Jagoda and the ever-elusive Jim DeVito talk Swamp Cabbage, the honor of playing Katz’s Deli and mis-translating Spanish.
