So grateful to have as brilliant and unique a voice as Burke was able to bring to the show this week. As he alluded to in his introduction, Burke is a director, a photographer and director of photography. He recently was the DP on a season of Top Chef and his web site includes not only some amazing portraiture but also several of the music videos he has directed. Check it out!
As I mentioned in the extro of this week's show, Burke brought his own music mix. It's most of the tracks from a mix tape that he and his high school friends exchanged in 1993. It's available here. If you were listening carefully, you might have heard that Burke's high school pal Colin from Helena Montana is actually Colin Meloy of the Decemberists. Small world.
And if you have a story about the song that saved your life be sure to send it to me at email@example.com.
