The LeBrain Train: 2000 Words or More with Mike Ladano…and Deke!
Episode 55 – The Return of Brent Jensen
** One Year Anniversary Episode **
Brent Jensen is one of my favourite people. His No Sleep ‘Til Sudbury podcast is essential listening. I’m currently working my way through the book No Sleep’Til Sudbury, a story I really identify with. Though Brent is a couple years ahead of me, I really see myself in his story of discovering hard rock and heavy metal in the early 80s. Seeing bands for the first time, the contrived origins and evolution of Motley Crue, cassettes, video tapes…it is a great read. One that has me stroking my beard in deep thought, as I am forced to consider heavy metal history from a different angle.
Superdekes will be back as your co-host for what we hope will be another excellent free-form conversation about the subject we all love: music that makes our skin vibrate.
In addition: this will be my one year anniversary show! Ontario went into a state of emergency on March 17, 2020. I went live that Friday. And here we are a year later! To celebrate, I’ll be doing a CD giveaway (details at bottom), and showing clips from the very first show a year ago.
Not only that: Brent is celebrating four years and 200 episodes of No Sleep ‘Til Sudbury, the podcast! He just opened a new Patreon membership too, so we will be talking about that and plenty more. This is an episode you don’t want to miss. You want to catch it live!
CD GIVEAWAY CONTEST
We will be asking a skill-testing question about Brent Jensen on the show. Submit your answers in the form below. We will be giving away two sealed CDs: The Cars’ debut (remastered), and a signed copy of Jim Crean’s excellent Insatiable. I will be doing a random draw from a hat next week!
