Podcast with Musician Hector Qirko

Hector Qirko is a musician of an extraordinary sort; he is a guitar legend in Knoxville who has played with everyone from Chicago blues star Lonnie Brooks to seminal punk band Balboa. He is currently remastering some of Balboa frontman Terry Hill's lost tapes, and has also just put out a new album of his own that includes acoustic tunes with a mountain flavor. We talk to him in our studio about his music, his 21 years in the music business and how the industry has changed. Plus, there is some really good music. You can visit Hector's website at
Links mentioned in the show include Hector's own site, the site of R.B. Morris, and the Terry Hill memorial page. Plus, the Lonesome Coyotes.
