Alliances in Accutron green with Sam Phillips, Brendan O'Rourke and Nate Gana.

The Accutron Show

What do Hudson Whiskey, La Palina Cigars and website Single Malt Daily have in common? A special connection colored in Accutron green. To celebrate Accutron's birthday month, our hosts chat with Brendan O' Rourke, Site Leader at Tuthilltown Spirits producers of Hudson Whiskey, Sam Phillips, President and Co-owner of La Palina Cigars and Nate Gana, Founder of Bevridge and Owner of Whisky Live USA and Canada. Together they discuss the links between the whiskey and cigar worlds as well as the special Accutron items about to come out. So fill up your glass with your best whiskey, light up a cigar and tune in this new episode of the Accutron Show!Episode Highlights9:38 The first project we worked on with Accutron for its 60th anniversary was a single barrel release. We wanted to showcase what rye can do. For this next project, we wanted to create something completely unique, so we created a blend specifically for Accutron which is something that Hudson does not do on the market. 20:30 At the moment scotch/whiskey is in a very tough position versus bourbon or rye. For scotch/whiskey a lot of brands have relied on their name and taken down the quality of what they produced by adding water. With bourbon and rye, it would be hard to find a company that would want to cut down the ABV.27:00 I have been working with tobacco for so long, and tobacco or cigars are the opposite of what they are trying to accomplish with whisky. The cigar has to change, it has to keep you interested. There's got to be a level of complexity and that's what we strive for year after year.Learn more about the Accutron watch here, and follow @AccutronWatch:InstagramTwitterFacebookSubscribe to this podcast on Apple Podcasts and Spotify to hear new episodes as soon as they're released.Follow our hosts on social media:Bill McCuddy: Facebook  / TwitterDavid Graver: Instagram  / TwitterLa Palina: Instagram  / TwitterHudson Whiskey: Instagram  / Twitter

Baz Luhrmann’s movie ’Elvis.’ A lifelong Elvis fan reacts. Includes Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Records

The Joe Jackson Interviews

I love the fact that Baz Luhrmann's movie Elvis has brought the King of Pop, as we called him when I was a child, back into public consciousness globally.  And that Elvis's music is getting 67% more streaming than before the movie was released. Luhrmann must receive the highest praise for all that. But, as a so-called "Elvis expert" and someone who has written countless articles about Presley since 1977 and made fifteen one-hour radio documentaries about the man and his music, including Conversations about the King, which was nominated for a Best Music Documentary award in 2018, I now hope to highlight the aspects of Elvis's art and life, that Baz has excluded from his movie. And in some cases, sadly, misrepresented, such as denying or belittling Elvis's roots in white gospel and country music, and, above all, the "never-ending spiritual search" his daughter Lisa says he was always on. This is the first of 3 podcasts.

Sam Phillips


Some songs you enjoy in the background while others take up residence in your bones. Sam Phillips’ music is in the latter category. She was Christian pop artist Leslie Phillips until she outgrew those constraints and, as Sam, began releasing such transcendent songs as “Holding On to the Earth” and “I Need Love” and wonderful albums such as the spirited The Indescribable Wow, the tour de force Martinis and Bikinis and the intimate Fan Dance. What threat did she make to get released from her Christian label? How did she wind up playing a mute villain in Die Hard with a Vengeance? How is she still searching for the euphoric? She’s as perceptive and spellbinding in conversation as in song.

077: Sam Phillips - Martinis and Bikinis (1994)

Discord and Rhyme: An Album Podcast

You might know Sam Phillips from those lovely "la la la"s on the Gilmore Girls soundtrack, or as Katya, the silent assassin in Die Hard: With a Vengeance. But she's also a fiercely talented songwriter with an encyclopedic knowledge of music and a literary lyrical sense. She first cut her teeth in the contemporary Christian music world (as Leslie Phillips, “the Christian Cyndi Lauper”) before leaving Myrrh Records and forging a creative and personal bond with producer T Bone Burnett. But though her 1994 album Martinis & Bikinis is a secular album on the surface, it’s brimming with a spirituality that makes its point without resorting to dogma, as well as melodies and arrangements that reference the Beatles without slipping into pastiche. So join Rich, Amanda, and John for a Discord & Rhyme that’s one part Beatles study and one part Bible study, with a little bit of XTC and The Brave Little Toaster thrown in for good measure.Cohosts: Rich Bunnell, John McFerrin, Amanda RodgersComplete show notes: https://discordpod.com/listen/077-sam-phillips-martinis-and-bikinis-1994Support the podcast! https://www.patreon.com/discordpod
