In this episode Whipkey 3 frontman Matt Whipkey joins me in the Worlds of Wayne Tiki Bar for a chat about his upcoming project Penny Park Omaha NE 1989. A double album he is funding through Kickstarter. We talk about the concept, writing, producing and funding of this ambitious record.
From the site:
With the 1990's at their doorstep and young adult emotions running hot, one young woman, Penny Park, will not get out of their head. The teenagers of Omaha, NE are fighting, bleeding, screaming, begging to tell you all about her. With over two albums of music covering many genres, Penny Park: Omaha, NE: Summer 1989 transports the listener to a time when your only concern was summer, summer, summer. What history dealt those Cass St. gates is readily documented. How the romance ends for these young men and Penny is anyone's guess and everyone's story.
