Episode 101 – The Picks Show with author Jake Brown

We begin our show this week asking our audience for a little help. No, it’s not for money! Rather we are in the market for an intern! That’s right. We need some help in the I.T. department and feel sure that there’s a student or professional musician out there that would love to help us. If you are familiar with social media promotion, web site design, SEO, and don’t mind helping answer and send a few emails than you might have yourself a gig (or some college credit). Head on over to our website at: and drop us a line.

Before we get to our main topic of the day Phil breaks the news that he’s had an article published in the July issue of Percussive Notes magazine. We also discuss the passing of drumming legend, DJ Fontana. We also talk about his contributions to rock and roll and his lesser known role as a Nashville studio drummer.

This week Phil and Jon step outside the lines and do a show recommending some of their favorite things. We intentionally stay away from genres that we’ve picked in our recurring segments and choose things that inspire us when we’re away from the drums.

We finish up by visiting with author, Jake Brown. Jake is the author of the book, “Beyond the Beats”. His book is a collection of print interviews from 1980s arena rock drummers. He talks about how he started writing, the process of this book, and his future books highlighting different types of drummers.
