100th Episode Celebration! With John Lodge, Mark Farner, Joe Bouchard, Joey Dee, Ted Nugent, Felix Cavaliere, Dennis Tufano, Patrick Myers, Ellott Randall, Brian Hyland And Giorgia Fumanti!
This is the 100th Episode Celebration of the Follow Your Dream Podcast! I started the podcast in March 2021 during the depths of the pandemic. I had been a musician all my life but at that time it was impossible to perform or record or even to rehearse. So I put all of my creative energies into the podcast.
The purpose of the podcast is to inspire and motivate people to follow and succeed at their dream, just as I followed my youthful music dream later in life and succeeded.
I’m pleased to say that the podcast has grown and developed wonderfully. It’s ranked in the Top 1% of all podcasts and we have listeners in 194 countries! How about that! And I’ve had so many famous musicians and others as guests, in particular a number of musicians who were my heroes as I was coming of age musically in the 60s and 70s.
And the icing on the cake is that I’ve begun to collaborate musically with several of my musician guests.
I wanted to celebrate the 100th episode milestone by putting together a kind of montage episode featuring some of the great musicians who I’ve interviewed. I’ve taken excerpts from their episodes, but I invite you to listen to their full interviews and also to all of my other episodes. And don’t forget all the Bonus Music Episodes and Special Episodes too that I have released from time to time.
I want to thank you for listening - and keep on rockin!
My featured song in this episode is “Cakewalk For Debra”, the first song that ever I wrote and recorded. Spotify link here.
