For this episode of Songs of Our Lives, I invite Eric Mingus on the show. Eric’s newest album, Lessons From My Father, is tremendous and moving. We talk about his research on the Mingus Mill in North Carolina and collaborating with Yo-Yo Ma before diving in to memories of his father playing in the house, how far ahead of his time Miles was, The Band’s ability to make someone else’s songs their own, The Boss’s creeper side, and so much more!
Songs of Our Lives is a podcast series hosted by Brad Rose of Foxy Digitalis that explores the music that’s made us and left a certain mark. Whether it’s a song we associate with our most important moments, something that makes us cry, the things we love that nobody else does, or our favorite lyrics, we all have our own personal soundtrack.
