Film composer, session drummer, and recording artist Deane Ogden has launched a cool new internet radio show/podcast called On the Hit which features candid one-on-one interviews with “players who make the music you know best”. Episode 3 just went live which is an interview with the legendary session bassist Leland Sklar and is simply fantastic!
I also want to mention this new show is the latest in a long line of projects (such as the informative and inspiring Scorecast Online) where Deane has taken time to give back to the community. So I encourage you to support this show by subscribing, taking a moment to leave a comment on iTunes, and of course by spreading the word about OTH.
Below is an overview of the show including links to get you started.
ON THE HIT with DEANE OGDEN (OTH) is an internet podcast featuring Deane’s one-on-one candid conversations with the most intriguing personalities in rock, pop, R&B, jazz and country music — the artists, musicians and moguls who’ve created music history as we know it today.
OTH airs each Tuesday on iTunes, Stitcher Radio and Liberated Syndication. The premiere episode of OTH was launched on March 12, 2014 and featured Wrecking Crew keyboardist Don Randi and son of Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco, Denny Tedesco. That episode was recorded in Los Angeles with subsequent first-season episodes recorded in Portland, London, San Francisco, Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
ON THE HIT with DEANE OGDEN was born out of Deane’s work in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville as a session drummer, percussionist and programmer. He began interviewing colleagues he was recording with and later expanded to include musicians who’d influenced his own work as well as engineers and producers who have helped shaped modern music and sound.
Deane has also composed and produced some amazing music which you can find on his web site http://www.deaneogden.com/.
