    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Paul Thorn

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 7:54 pm

Paul Thorn is a favorite of listeners to The Bob Edwards Show, and not just for his musical talents. The guy has stories, and a distinctive way of telling them. He’s been on the program a bunch of times, and was even the subject of the first “Backstage with Bob” podcast…but the first time he appeared on the program was March of 2008, with this introduction:

“Washington Post columnist David Broder begins our week with his Monday political analysis. The rest of the program today belongs to Paul Thorn, a onetime professional boxer who survived seven rounds with Roberto Duran. Fortunately, he still has enough teeth to be a highly-regarded singer/songwriter, composing such gems as “Mission Temple Fireworks Stand,” “Burn Down the Trailerpark,” and “I’d Rather Be a Hammer than a Nail.” The son of a Pentecostal preacher, Paul Thorn made his music debut as a three-year-old on tamborine at his daddy’s revivals. But he’s left the tent for clubs and theaters promoting his new cd titled, “A Long Way From Tupelo.”

So first we’ll hear again the late David Broder, and then the rest of the hour with fan favorite Paul Thorn.
