Friends, it was bound to happen: "a very special" Talking At The Diner is upon us. Don't worry: nobody gets hurt or molested like in those questionable episodes of Webster or Diff'rent Strokes from back in the day. But while the premise of this podcast has always been that it's a show in which I have stimulating conversations with fellow musicians in the comfortable confines of the diner of their choice, this episode's conversation takes place not inside the diner, but on the way to it, and on the way back from it. Why, you may ask? Well, because the diner... WAS CLOSED!!
However, since we were already mic'd up on our one-mile trek to the Whitman Diner in Turnersville, NJ, Joey DiTullio and I just kept right on walking and talking!
For the uninitiated, Joey DiTullio has been a major figure in my musical life for close to a decade now. I met him when he was a teenage guitar prodigy and he has since evolved into one of the best all around musicians I know. He’s a multi-threat instrumentalist, one of my favorite singers to harmonize with, he’s now also a producer, engineer, go-to session musician. He does it all. He’s been a cornerstone bandmate of mine and there is no doubt that he is the OG Meddling Kid. Please enjoy this great conversation!
