my guest for episode 108 is the incredible, michael fracasso. i first heard and met michael in 1991 when i moved into the congress house recording studio. he was recording his first album.i fell in love with michael's timeless, lonesome voice and sweet songs instantly and have been a fan ever since. michael just released his 8th album, "saint monday" last year and has been touring behind it ever since. we talked about his humble beginnings in a small, ohio steel town to preparing for his 9th album and everything in between. i have always liked michael a lot. he's a great guy. i hope you enjoy our conversation as much as i did.
