The Public Breakfast w/ Matt Scherger and Kier Crites – Episode #2: Kate Sweeney of Bernadette’s Barbershop

Thanks for joining us!  Kate Sweeney, co-owner of Bernadette’s Barbershop stopped by the Hey Check Out This Song studio to sit and talk with Kier and I about being one of the newest business owners on Main Street in Lafayette.  Kate talks about the feel of Bernadette’s, “Beard Bangs”, which I learned are not the male equivalent of a “Brazilian Blowout”, the plan she and Kristen had to start the barbershop, Drew’s studies at ABC, Danielle’s artistic abilities and a contest.  Take some time and check out what we got going on in this little city of ours.  Next week we will be joined by Chris Johnson, owner and brewmaster of People’s Brewing Company, and Dancefloor Mountain Radio #33.  See you then.

Episode #31 – Dancefloor Mountain Radio: Fiddle Tunes, Cajun and Hillbilly Songs. We’re Back! Oh Yeah… And a Happy Birthday To Old Man Grosso!

Hey Mountain Heads, it’s good to be back.  Had to take some time off to move into our new house.  The computer was not running the same and it took me (computer illiterate) until now to get these shows back up and running.  I’ve been wanting to get back to recording more episodes, so we’re glad it’s back on.

Great episode this week, centering on hillbilly and cajun fare for the hour.  When it’s hot like this I’m about knee deep in fiddle tunes, and that’s what we got for you.  Giving you a listen to the likes of Roan Mountain Hilltoppers, Cousin Emmy, a young Clarence Ashley and some Cajun no-names, this is a great hour to accompany your weekend grilling and beer intake.

Good lord willing we’ll be back weekly from here on out.  More Dispatches w/ Jacob, The Public Breakfast (talk), and eventually the summer project, Pavement Ends Here…

Next guest on The Public Breakfast:  Chris Johnson, TBA
