I think their stuff is out of print, TKC. But you should be able to find Michael Powers' most recent cds (plus he's got his own web site and there are lots of videos of him up on YouTube).

amazing! Mike, you should write a Boardwalk Empire spec script about the candy store speakeasy.

1. I liked your uncle.

2. Has there been an influx of new customers since you started your series, Mike?

3. Louie Mambo!

I can't say there's been an influx of new customers as a result of the videos, Sarah, but the other night I met some new people who seemed enthusiastic about doing interviews. I'm still just getting the word out at this point.

Also, I believe it's "Louie, Mambo etc." I believe they're two distinct individuals who, most likely, are deceased, like so many of the legends from my uncle's bars.
See God, Kai

The German Shepherd story was like a creepy barfly version of Amazing Fantasy #15.

I love the the snippets of the unnamed customers' conversation at the beginning: "he says so I guess you wanna lawyer up now" and  something about the "perps" leaving photos.  A nice intro that really capture the feel of an urban blue-collar bar in the middle of a weekday. I like this series.

I just listened to the Kevin and John episodes after listening to last nights Best Show.  They were great.  The German Sheppard story was great but I may liked the Chuck Wepner kicking ass at the bar story even more.  I can't wait to use the phrase "assholes we're puckering that night." 

Good stuff Mike

A new episode of The Faces of Massa's Tavern is up. Great bar stories from the legendary Ocean Eddie. I call this episode: "Horses, Spittoons, and Kielbasa." If you are not charmed by this man I will give you your money back:
