This episode is a special tribute edition to a friend Bob McDowell who passed away. Bob and I were scheduled to do a podcast over the holidays to discuss his military career and his incredible music ability. We rescheduled as Bob was not feeling well...we never got the chance to have that discussion. Bob was a Navy Veteran, a father, an incredibly gifted and underrated musician with the band The Damnits. Bob was kind, smart, funny and most of all just an incredible human. I will miss our conversations and miss seeing him when I visit Columbus. I think as a tribute the best thing I can do is share his music. I hope you enjoy his incredible talent and take the time to visit itunes, bandcamp and their website. You will be greatly missed brother, RIP Bob McDowellFor more information on Bob and his band The Damnits visit:thedamnits.comFor more information on The Abstract Athlete, check out our website at:https://www.theabstractathlete.com/For information on the One Man's Ethos Podcast visit:https://www.onemansethos.com/For more information on The Abstract Doctors Podcast visit:https://www.theabstractdoctors.com/
Episode 24 - Bob McDowell Fancy Farms Strawberry Interview, Trinity 7 Music
Great Things Tampa Bay
Ever wondered what all goes into making a delicious strawberry, one worth of topping shortcake and being celebrated in a festival? I interview Bob McDowell, 15 year farmer at Fancy Farms out in Plant City, Florida and we talk everything strawberry and strawberry farming, and this interview just so happened to be conducted the day after a hard freeze which resulted in some crop damage. Did you know that a strawberry can be larger or smaller depending on the phase of the moon? Learn this and other great facts in this episode! Also featuring music from a great local reggae band Trinity 7! Trinity 7 is a family group led by Jamaican born Ras Meishak who is a dynamic song writer and bassist, and has performed with Yellowman, Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Admiral Tibet, Eric Donaldson and many more.
