It’s been an interesting year for Mike Bridavsky. He went from running Russian Recording in Bloomington to traveling around so people can stare at his cat, Lil Bub (one of the most popular cats on the internet). Mike and I talked a bit about balancing Lil Bub duties with recording work and what it’s like when flying your famous cat around becomes a full-time job.
If you told teenage Sean that he’d eventually get to interview Segue Sam and the Gorton’s Fisherman, he would’ve freaked out. Then again, I’m adult Sean, and the opportunity to chat with Jon Glaser was still pretty enthralling. Not only that, but it may have helped me inch closer to making a big change in my life.
Ray Harryhausen’s death hit me pretty hard. Not only was his work wildly influential in the film world, but it left an indelible mark on me (and millions of other people).

When I initially got in touch with filmmaker Lance Bangs about doing an interview, I was totally unaware that he had a connection to the Louisville music scene.
