Matt Whipkey in the studio! Showcasing songs from his new solo record. Here is a excerpt from a recent article in the City Weekly...
"The disc itself finds Whipkey dealing with broken relationships and the drawn out loneliness one might feel when unable to find anywhere to fit in (see especially the closer “No Place In This World,” an up tempo rocker that reveals Whipkey’s subject isolated and alone, propped up and animated by soaring, well-placed harmonica wails). Whipkey admitted that he was working under the influence of the songwriting of Dylan and Springsteen, especially taking into account the latter’s four-track masterpiece of an album, “Nebraska.”
Over a drink or two at the Barley Street, Whipkey was obviously very proud of his latest album and was eager to show off the finished product – each of which comes with a one-of-kind Polaroid picture made into a sleeve for the liner notes – to his friends at the bar. He also said that his CD release party next Saturday at the Waiting Room features a special reunion of his former band Anonymous American."

This episode I am joined by Irish band Seneca, who is currently on tour here in the US. They stopped by before their show in Lincoln and joined me for an interview and live performance. It was a pleasure to have them in as last year's interview was canceled due to problems with the band getting visas in time. They even let me sit in on Cajon on Clarity and Marks!
Big thanks to them for making the drive from Lincoln to Omaha and back just for the show.
Please find them online and buy their new album "Sweeter Than Bourbon" it is a true gem.

On this episode of Worlds of Wayne I welcome Lauren Mulderrig. Currently on tour with band mate and guitarist Alex Barnett, she is making her way across the country and stopped off in Omaha to play a show at Mick's. Turns out it was the last show Mick's would have as the place changed ownership shortly after. We will miss that place.
Alex is also a guitarist in the hardcore band Stick To Your Guns and we play a tune at the end of the episode from them.
Check out her Myspace page for the 4th video tour diary as they shot some of the interview and had some very kind words to say about the experience.

Omaha musician and local legend Dereck Higgins joins me on the show to talk about his colorful musical upbringing. He's played virtually all styles of music and has been a pioneer in the Omaha music scene. From Jazz to punk, Dereck has played it all and experienced what it's like to be the only black man in a rock and roll band in the Midwest. Times have changed and Dereck is now playing in the Saddle Creek Records band Son Ambulance, as well as pursuing his own music as well as working in film.
He's also one of the nicest cats I've ever met.

Welcome to 2009 people. Last year was a blast, starting off with some great guests and ending with the generous donations of you the listener. It was fun going back through the list of in studio guests, interviews and events that Worlds of Wayne had and I want to thank all of you for your continued support into 2009. This year started off with a bang as the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards took over the Holland Center and recognized local music, theater, and art with a grand event, a few cocktails, and some sweet trophies.
Laurie joins me in the studio this time for the first show of the new year. Thanks again for all the support and keep listening. Great stuff coming up this year.
