Rock Paper Podcast (Mini Episode) – Paul Stanley

With the surfacing of the great Paul Stanley Folgers commercial, we uncovered a lost Rock Paper Podcast mini episode that features an interview with KISS guitarist Paul Stanley. http://traffic.libsyn.com/rockpaperpod/Mini_-_Paul_Stanley.mp3 *DISCLAIMER* This is not actually Paul Stanley, our good friend Frankie Chubb was having some fun after an episode and we decided to do a mock interview. Enjoy, we love you...

Nick currently lives in Brooklyn, but he is back home in St. Louis for the holidays, and it was very cool of him to invite us over to hang with him for the show. He was super welcoming and if we had more time, then I definitely would have challenged him to a game of foosball as I saw a setup in the basement. Next time perhaps, your move Nick! I really enjoyed the episode with Nick this week. He is one of the first guys we’ve had on the show who has had some experience writing for some major networks, but also who has had some appearances on some late night shows as well. I always have an extreme curiosity for the process of these shows and how these things come together. Obviously, when you see it on television, it seems so flawless and it was really interesting to hear about his experience with Jimmy Fallon. We normally try to keep our episodes around the 1-hour length, but this one ran a little longer because there was so much we wanted to cover. I think we probably could have easily made this episode run over 2-hours long. I hope he can come back on the show sometime down the line and hangout again. I would love to chat more about his podcast and how he goes about preparing his shows. If you take a listen to some of his episodes, he is portraying different characters, and I’m just curious how he approaches the episodes in terms of planning or if it is all improv. This episode was a great way to wrap up 2014, and though we may have a special mini episode before 2015 officially kicks off, this will be our last guest episode until the first of the year....

Inside the Episode – David Butler

As you heard in the episode, I’ve known David since my senior year in high school. We developed a friendship in our weight training class, and an inside joke that referenced “The Wall.” I still cannot remember what this had to do with, but it stemmed from a conversation regarding Pink Floyd. The conversation with David was sincerely one of those where I just wanted to pick his brain. You can tell that he has a genuine passion for not just the music he writes, but for the production side of it. People who really look in to details, like the quality of files really blows my mind, and you can sense when we got in to the topic that I was just listening to him talk about it. This episode probably have easily gone to the 2-hour mark, but we normally try to wrap episodes around the 1-hour mark, plus it was getting later, and David said he had been up since 5am. He probably would have totally talked for another hour with us, but I didn’t want to keep him. Something that I have sensed from many of our guests, are that they never make it feel like a burden to come on the show, they sincerely thanks us for having them on, and its’ mutual. We would not have a show, if these musicians and comedians did not take the time out of their day to come chat with us. David is one of those guys who has an extreme desire to learn things, and you can tell by how he talks about teaching himself different instruments. I think people like that don’t take answers on a surface level, they want to dig down and learn how things work or why things are, and I think with the topics we covered, you can really tell that’s how David is. I hope to have David back on the show if(When) he gets a studio started, because I feel like there’s a whole source of conversation that we could talk about with just music production. I love seeing what people think of the future of music, and formats and David definitely touched a bit on that. As I find...
