    Mumcast 65 Frank Muffin's Sgt Pepper
    In 1967, we opened our new copy of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", expecting something brilliant and groundbreaking. Turned out to be much more, as Pepper became one of the most influential albums, not only in the Beatles' canon, but in all of contemporary music.  Members of local Lafayette band Frank Muffin, along with 20 musicians from the community and elsewhere, will be staging that album from start to finish, with extras, December 9, at Lafayette Theater. It's a

    Mumcast 61 "The Good Life" with John Bower/Brandon Reed
    The last time we spoke to John Bower on this podcast, we talked about the hard grind that is a career in music. Those careers often include full-time side jobs, bad gigs, math-challenged club owners, sketchy promoters, and more. Now, John is seeing the culmination of all that hard work. In fact, you could say he's "livin the good life". The Good Life is a new tune by Bower and songwriting partner George Domiano, with some bars from Brandon Reed, also well-known in local circles for his solo

    Mumcast 59 Bye Bye Becker/Mungion Update
    This Labor Day weekend included a tragic loss for the music community. Walter Becker, one half of Steely Dan, died at age 67. The Dan have influenced legions of musicians with their potent mix of jazz, rock, and r&b influences, not to mention the sardonic wit and their brainy, sometimes obtuse take on songwriting. Their music isn't for everyone, a big reason why those who get them love their ethos. We read an excerpt of Rob Sheffield's Rolling Stone article on Walter, which describes and sums up

    Nicky Kerr's Paper Towns
    Nicky Kerr knew from the start what she didn't want: the picket fence, the Ivy League school, becoming "Suburban Royalty". Her mission is well laid out and accomplished on her new CD "Paper Towns". It's an autobiographical set of 10 tunes, produced by wizard Micheal Kelsey.  She'll perform those songs on May 6th at the beautiful Delphi Opera House (a beautiful, award-winning restored building) with Mike (Tickets and details here). The title tune, "Paper Towns", sums up the message about living

    Mumcast #47 Flat Five-A World of Love and Hope
    Flat Five are a Chicago group of amazing musicians that bring their individual influences together for a gumbo of quirky covers and originals. To quote the Facebook bio "Alex Hall, Kelly Hogan, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonough, Nora O'Connor Kean -- separately, these folks are in-demand touring and recording musicians for bands like Neko Case, The Decemberists, NRBQ, Jakob Dylan, Mavis Staples, Andrew Bird, J.D. McPherson, Robbie Fulks, Wanda Jackson, The Mekons, The New Pornographers, Alejandro

    Mumcast 13- If Ya Wanna Make $1 mil in Music, Start With $2 mil
    On the most recent episode of Mumcast: The Rick Mummey Show, we interviewed journalist/musician Tim Brouk, formerly a writer at the Lafayette Journal and Courier, who now writes for media portal Thinklafayette.com, where he tackles subjects of local and universal interest. We also talked about how bad the Super Bowl Halftime usually is, and how to fix it. SEGMENT ONE: We talked about our new website, rickmum.com, and about new additions to Dr. Will's Neighborhood of podcasts, including

    Your Favorite Show, My Favorite Show
    We asked people to contribute to Mumcast: The Rick Mummey Podcast by telling us about their favorite concert going experiences. These events often carry great memories for us, and bring us closer to the artists that bowl us over with skill, charm, and, sometimes, spectacle. Sometimes they're a rite of passage, when your parents loosened up enough to let you go, even though they were afraid (or certain) that you might descend into depravity. Regardless of genre or era, the concerts described by

    Post #1: WHY ARE WE HERE, ANYWAY?
    I guess I'm challenging myself with such a deep topic for my inaugural post. I choose the question because it dovetails nicely with my mission to tease out the motivations and inspirations from creative people. Why do they create? Why must they create? Many creatives with whom I've spoken tell me that making their art is as central to their existence as breathing and eating (for many artists, creating may be more important than eating, since eating requires what many artists find to be in short
