See Hear Podcast Episode 88 – Songwriter


So, let's say you're a working songwriter and musician. Life is hard enough as it is (and we're talking pre-Covid) without a couple of divorces, management of a singer with an inferiority complex, keeping an agent inline who's trying to cheat you, and a publisher is HAS cheated you to worry about.

Unless you're Doc Jenkins.....

Welcome to episode 88 of See Hear.

Bernie, Tim and Maurice gather around to talk about the 1984 film Songwriter starring Willie Nelson (as Doc Jenkins) and Kris Kristofferson (as Blackie Buck). The film looks at the day to day issues of a pair of country singers from Texas who aspire to stardom, but not before the industry takes ITS cut. They decide the industry can just stop cheating them out of their due, and they take some fun steps towards that.

The See Hear crew have some fun talking about the music and filmography of these giants of country music as well as the film and its songs. What did they think? Tune in and find out.

To follow along, you can watch the film on Tubi (but will need a VPN outside of the US). Sssshhhh......
