After crouching to fit under the doorway, singer/songwriter/journalist and gentle giant Peter Cooper steps into the portable pod booth to chat with host Jeremy Dylan about a classic from one of the classiest songwriters in country music - Tom T Hall’s 1971 album “In Search of a Song”.
Along the way, they break down tracks including “The Year Clayton Delany Died”, “Trip to Hyden” and “A Million Miles to the City” and talk about Hall’s songwriting research trips, how he broke his own songwriting rules, the difference between poetry and song lyrics and why you shouldn’t waste time complaining about music you hate.
