OUTSPOKEN – Ep. 59 – Bruce Bickford (Memorial rebroadcast)



This is a rebroadcast of my interview with Bruce Bickford, from August of 2018 (originally Ep. 22), who passed away a few months ago. This episode includes the complete original interview and its musical interludes*, plus a minor tribute and a new original song for Bruce, not heard in the first broadcast. *The second two interludes are excerpts of songs from the album Wayward Doctrine, by Father Howl. Many thanks to Aaron and Eric for facilitating my time with Bruce, and to Bruce himself for being a true original, and for making such brilliant and beautiful art.

Rest in peace, Bruce. (Feb. 11, 1947 – April 28, 2019)
