SONG SNATCH #93- "What's It Gonna Be?" by Mike O'Connell

Hello Music Lovers- 

You’re at the bar and on the prowl but the hour is late and you’re running out of time.

You haven’t made a connection yet except for glaring across the room and probably making one poor woman feel a little bit uncomfortable. 

The bartender tells her, “It’s last call, but I’d get outta here now.” 

She pays and leaves but your boastful message of your lovemaking prowess has to be heard loud and clear by her and everyone else. 

Listen for yourself in Song Snatch #93 as the great LA actor, poet, and songwriter Mike O’Connell, along with his co-star Ken Jeong, perform the smash hit, “What’s It Gonna Be?”! 

(episode running time- 3 minutes and 44 seconds)

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT #4- Mr. Dickie Weed

Mr. Dickie Weed- "If You Ain't Country, You Ain't Shit"

Welcome to and Episode #4 of my interview series, The Song Snatch ARTIST SPOTLIGHT where I feature a short conversation with THE most original recording artists on the planet and play one of their remarkable, uncut and uncensored, funny and fucked up songs.

Today’s spotlight is on Mr. Dickie Weed, the pseudonym for gifted Nashville songwriter, Micheal Smotherman, who in  real life, has had his songs recorded by the likes of Roger Miller, Glenn Campbell, Kenny Rogers, Ray Charles, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, the Allman Brothers, Trace Adkins, Brooks and Dunn, and many more.

But when he wants to just have some fun and record for himself and his friends, he takes those same songwriting skills and creates some of the funniest, and highest quality songs of anyone I know.

I spoke with Dickie in October 2006 and got a sense of his attitude and approach towards the art of songwriting and how his songs come about, including a song true to his heart, “If You Ain’t Country, You Ain’t Shit”! 

Enjoy music lovers. 

(episode running time- 9 minutes and 11 seconds)
