Roger Clyne of Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers chats with me on the first episode of Anywhere The Needle Drops of 2016! It started out as a brief plug for my favorite musician and his tequila crowd-funding and it ended up as a near hour-long conversation about music, creation, and...dogs in the home office.

Roger and company are raising funds to help expand operations and reach for their Mexican Moonshine tequila. We talk about the campaign and we also discuss the 20th anniversary of The Refreshments album, Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy. This was a fantastic, unexpected conversation with a musician I've followed for those twenty years.

You'll also get to check out two tracks from Roger's catalog, Counterclockwise from Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers Americano album before the conversation and, after, Mekong from Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy.
