BONUS: Phil Thompson

Ukulele Is The New Black

Release Date: 01/13/2019

I bumped into my ex brother in law Phil Thompson at the Newkulele Festival in October 2018.

He played a few bars from:

  • How’s The World Treating You (Chet Atkins & Boudleaux Bryant, 1956)
  • Love Her Madly (Robby Krieger, 1971)

Like many guests on the podcast, Phil talked about the talented Mark Jackson and Jane Jelbart.  If you want to learn more about them and their Ukestras, they featured in episode 11, and they have a website: The Sum of the Parts.

Please vote for the podcast in the Australian Podcast Awards – wouldn’t it be amazing for a ukulele podcast to win the popular vote?  The voting link is here.

I will be in Seattle for a few days in early March 2019.  If you know someone who lives in either of those places who should be a guest on the show, please get in touch via the website www.ukuleleisthenewblack.com, or podcast@ukuleleisthenewblack.com.
