Alan Williams: Sometimes You Need To Hit Pause for 25 Years
We're Only Human
In 1995, Alan Williams wrote and recorded a heartfelt album of songs to process the loss of his record deal and the dissolution of his marriage.When the album was randomly chosen for critique at a South by Southwest panel, the response was bad. Alan's dreams were crushed. He put away his guitar and shelved the album.Now 25 years later, Alan is finally releasing the album. Not much has changed about the album. But maybe there's something about him that has changed?In this episode, Alan and I chat about:Why he lost all faith in the album (and in everything really) when his CD was chosen for critique at South by SouthwestWhy he carries hundreds of CDs of his failed album with him to this dayHow he fell into teaching at a university and realized he was meant to be a teacherHow the core of who we are might have be there all along and remain within us no matter how much we changeThe closure he feels now that the album is finally outIf Alan was truly ready to release the album, even if the review at South by Southwest had been positiveWhy it’s important to be in the moment, even if the moment appears very bleak

Pod-Fest 8 Sports Announcer Al Michaels And Alan Williams
Arroe Collins Like It's Live
Hey it’s Arroe and this is Pod-fest 8. A couple of conversations with people we know either through entertainment, politics, science, medical or by helping us put our lives back in order. They’re played back to back. I’ve learned that podcast listening isn’t always about a four minute song. The lyrics we share in the everyday world make being a part of this new age of content incredibly special and these guests always bring their story. On this episode we’re going to spend some time with television sports announcer Al Michaels and Alan Williams, ½ of the creative team behind a podcast dedicated solely to the 60’s Pop band The Monkees.First Al Michaels. Just over five years ago he put him thumb prints on the pages of a new book titled YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS UP. In his words it covers it all; the thrilling victories, the agonizing defeats and all of the fantastic inside stories including the surprising birth date information he received from Charlie Hustle. Alan Williams is no stranger to the past and present history of The Monkees. In 2017 I sat down with him at a Panera Bread. Mainly because I was with what was turning out to be the next generation of Broadcasting. Podcasting has turned childhood wishes and dreams into physical broadcasts that reach around the world. Not everybody is a Monkees fan. Yet a lot of everyday people know who they are. Alan Williams has teamed up with another collector and Monkee follower to create one of the most dynamic shows bouncing off the walls and back onto this giant big blue marble. The Texas Chicken Prairie Home Companion. I’m Arroe and this is Pod Fest Eight

Currently you can catch him as Martin Imari on The Righteous Gemstones or as Mac on Greenleaf. If you don’t recognize his name, you will certainly recognize his face and his phenomenal acting chops.
