The best nose in Aussie rock and frontman of legendary racket-makers You Am I, Tim Rogers, joins host Jeremy Dylan to reveal his surprising pick for his favorite album - John Hiatt’s 1987 breakthrough “Bring the Family”, which featured songs like ‘Thing Called Love’ and ‘Have A Little Faith In Me’.
Why did the album that made middle-age cool give Tim hope as a troubled teen? How did the all-star band that play on the album come together? Why did their follow up project Little Village fall apart? What are the boundaries when writing songs about your family members? Why is John Hiatt so damn sexy?
Plus Tim addresses the story Jon Auer told back in episode 17 about Tim saving his life during the sessions for Tim’s classic “Hi Fi Way” album and talks about why touring with Nick Lowe solidified his love for the man and why he turned down the chance to write with Kinks legend Ray Davies.
