On this episode: We have a vintage Pass, Punt, and Kick football from 1964, a done shaped cased Singer Sewing Machine, and a book signed by the guy who built the biggest private house in America. Sound interesting? You bet it does. A good show!
It'd be inexact to describe Matthew E. White as a reluctant frontman, but up until the advent of Fresh Blood, his excellent second album, "rock star" wasn't exactly how he saw his future in music. His plan was more quixotic than becoming a successful singer-songwriter: He was starting a label, called Spacebomb Records, in the manner of Motown or Stax or Studio One, with a band and production team in-house. (Literally — his drummer is his roommate and their attic is Spacebomb Studios.)
