CakeIn15 pal Pat Dougherty of Fairfax, AK has kicked off a new podcast series for KFAI called The Guest List!

The intro to the first episode has Dougherty talking about the flash of inspiration of trying to make friends and connections with these other musicians who are his “best friends” even though so many of their interactions are loading and unloading in back alleyways and behind stages. The first guest is local singer-songwriter Niki Becker, who has just released a new EP Intermission.

In the first episode, Dougherty and Becker cover a range topics; the Stone Arch Festival where they met, growing up with Jewel and Conway Twitty, being a bad kid in Carver County, playing open mics and stage fright, and which venues in the Twin Cities are the pay-your-dues spots. It’s a fun listen from hard-working musicians, and we can’t wait to hear more.
