Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #843 – 9/22/2018: Danny Wilkerson interview!

Danny Wilkerson

I’ve known Danny Wilkerson for several years now. He’s best known as the drummer and occasional singer/songwriter for Texas power pop legends The Pengwins, along with another Twirl Radio staple, Lannnie Flowers. I’ve hung out with him in Texas each year for the past 4 years, on what’s becoming kind of an annual music nerd pilgrimage to Arlington, TX. He’s got an upbeat, positive personality, always quick to joke around or offer a kind word. A huge music fan, and a bit of a practical joker too–but I’ll tell you about that another time.

So knowing those things about a person, what would you expect a solo record of his to contain? Maybe upbeat music, positive lyrics, a sense of humor, all crafted with care, and with an understanding of what came before him. Lo and behold–that’s exactly the kind of album Danny released! His solo debut album, “Wilkerson”, is all of those things. It’s a bit of a throwback to an earlier time–when releasing pop music that sounded good to everybody, and could get played on the radio, actually mattered. Several different styles figure prominently on this album–it’s a pop tour de force. He’s got some impressive collaborators, including Bleu McAuley and Roger Joseph Manning Jr. Just get this one. It comes with 180 gram vinyl, a CD, and a digital download card. Big thanks to Spyderpop Records for releasing this masterpiece. www.dannywilkerson.com
