This week’s podcast is a “minisode”; occasional interviews and conversations that don’t quite fit our format, but that we think you might enjoy. This episode features a Proust like questionnaire about music and life with 21 questions for the legendary musician and cultural icon, Willie Nelson.
Born during the Great Depression and raised by his grandparents, Willie wrote his first song at age seven, joined his first band at 10 and went on to become one of the most recognized artists in American music. Before the hits, he worked as a disc jockey at radio stations in Texas and the Pacific Northwest while simultaneously honing his song writing and singing skills with songs like “Funny How Time Slips Away”, “Hello Walls” and “Crazy”. He has recorded. 97 studio albums, has acted in over 30 movies, co-authored several books and is also known for his activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana.
