Episode 42: Pete Downing

26Sep

This special episode, one of the musicians from Adam Sandler's band, Pete Downing stopped by to share his cool Fave5. We learn about how he dropped out of high school, smoked pot on the way to take the SAT's and left Massachussetts to go to Florida to be a drug smuggler...yet somehow managed to finish college.

Pete and David reminisce about how they lived together for a brief time and how it ended so awkwardly. Pete shares his fears of the boogeyman, his sexual awakening song, his "becoming a citizen song" and recalls "bussing" as an adolescent because a young African American girl lived with them, and all about early protests and running away to Philadelphia on a bus.

 

We head to Amsterdam for this week's Band Or Bar before we get to his Guilty Pleasure and incredible First Concert story.
