Tea with Frank - Music Scene Gossip

Posted by renadio on August 6th, 2011

We recorded this show just a week after the sad passing of Clarence Clemmons. Frank Gallagher worked with Clemmons and he talks about him. We also get a bit gossipy in this episode - please don't take anything you hear too seriously, we are just a bunch of folks kvetching over tea. Players in this episode: Renee, Sarah Meakin, Philip Meakin, Frank & Leah Gallagher.

Tea with Frank - one

Posted by renadio on July 31st, 2011

My Friend Frank Gallagher and I have visits at the local tea shop. Tal-Y-Tara is located in San Francisco's Richmond District. Over the months Frank and I will cover everything: music, family, politics, gossip, Wee Scotty clothing/sewing store, and eyebrows.

Today's conversation picks up with a recap of the Wee Scotty Fashion Show, Eoin Harrington gossip, Leah's birth, and eyebrows. It is a discussion in a tea shoppe so you will hear a few voices including mine, Frank (he's the Scottsman), Mr. Meakin (shoppe owner), Sarah Meakin, and various visitors to Tal-Y-Tara.
