32 - Eddie Coleman (Postcard Rampage Volume 1)

In the intro I read and talk about music statistics -- where people are looking for music, age brackets, sales charts based on media, etc. 

The interview features Eddie Coleman, a long-term world-wide traveler.  He goes everywhere, and takes his camera with him. We talked about his travels in the mid 80s.  Hopefully he will come back from time to time to talk about his various shoe-string budget adventures.

Jon and I sat down at his place in Koenji and talked music, life, the Tokyo scene, aliens, conspiracy theories, drummers, and more!

The people at Squarespace do not allow audio files larger than 160 megabytes to be uploaded, so for this episode you will have to stream it from Podbean.  The link is below. FU Squarespace!  As a final note, something happened -- no audio between 52:42 to 1:26:43.  A button was slapped, perhaps, and crashed the modernity of our simplicity for only 30 minutes.  It picks up where I tells ya! 1:26:43.
