Birds, Breasts and Bongs

Our guest for the 20th episode of “and then there’s that…” was Michael Oberman. To say that Michael was a bit of a departure from our usual lineup of politicians and community leaders would be an understatement. Michael is what you might call a colorful character.

In a past life, Michael Oberman was a rock and roll columnist for The Washington Star. From the mid sixties to the early seventies he interviewed over 300 rock and rollers including Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix. David Bowie stayed at his mothers’ house in Silver Spring one night when he came to America for his first concert tour. As he shared some of his stories it occurred to me that we probably should have put a mature audience’s disclaimer on this episode.

The biggest surprise of the afternoon was the chance encounter with HoCo Rising. TC and his dad were having lunch at the Red Pearl and we corralled him into coming on at the end of the show to discuss his recent blog post about Senator Ben Cardin’s endorsement of Dennis Schrader…from three years ago!
