This week on WBKE, we’re joined by an amazing musician named Anthony Walker for a conversation that covers a startling amount of ground. This episode is about twice the length of an average episode of our show, because I honestly enjoy everything we talk about. As long as this episode is, there’s still more that isn’t making the cut! I just didn’t want to clip another minute, so enjoy our discussion of:
Shitty writing, philosophy, animal behavior, little people working as bouncers, forming bands, and The Poops (a band Bobby is/used to be in). We also play a fucking badass game toward the end of the show which I’m calling “Are You a Nice Person?” It’s genius, so enjoy that, because it’ll definitely be coming back.
So let me tell you about Anthony Walker. About 4 years ago, I was at a bar and there were different bands playing small sets. If you’ve listened to the show before, then you know that I (Will) am not the friendliest/nicest guy, and you can probably imagine that I don’t pay much attention to people I don’t know. Even still, I remember a guy playing a really awesome set. His music was really immersive. It totally grabbed my attention. Not long later, Anthony got a job with me at Fridays, and I instantly recognized him as the musician from the bar (which is also significant, because again, if you listen to the show, you know I have a fucking horrendous memory). He was that good.
For a good long time, on the odd occasion that I found myself hanging out and drinking at Fridays, I’d get fucking wasted (because everyone bought me drinks. It ruled), and inevitably Anthony and I would get around to drunkenly talking about how awesome it would be to have a combination music and comedy show.
Needless to say, I’m fucking stoked we had him on the show. So please go to his Band Camp page where you can set your own price for his music (Anthony says you can get it for free, but he’s nicer than me. Pay him.), and go to his personal website where you can info about him and links to a shocking number of sites like YouTube and Tumblr: Anthony Walker.

Also, at the end, enjoy Anthony’s song “Call Me Custer,” from This City Never Sleeps, which has been stuck in my head all week.
Allie and I painted our apartment today, and we were both walking around singing that song, so good. Also “Sundowners.”
