It's “That Guy… Who Was in That Thing” meets "WTF" but with people even less well known! Sure it's fun to interview the crazy famous and ask them about the difficult years, but that's been done. Memories are plastic - we're getting the real dirt from people still crawling through it. Laura Scruggs is the playwright and Jake Scruggs is the technical guy who listens to a lot of “This American Life” and thinks that qualifies him to interview people.

0:02:30 Our guest is actor and rock'n'roll kinda guy Bob D'Haene who's up way early on a Saturday morn

0:05:15 Nilsa has known Bob since they were both in the conservatory at Webster

0:08:35 After a rough year leading-up to his graduation from Webster, he journeyed to the West Coast. While there he had an encounter with legendary piece 1990s soft core programming.

0:21:40 Bob highly recommends moving to New York if you have a network here, but admires those that don't

0:24:15 Bob was a member of Expanded Arts on the Lower East Side- the group that started the recently departed "Shakespeare In The Parking Lot". This led him to taking on more directorial projects than acting projects.

0:33:36 Then somewhere along the way, Bob found himself fronting his own band, singing his own songsā€¦ and reuniting with his first guitar.

0:38:33 In high school, music distracted him from studies, but reuniting with an early acting teacher helped him find some direction.

0:40:35 Bob's parents really wanted him to be a teacher. The path of an actor/rocker has not always been an easy one.

0:54:25 Nilsa describes Bob as Rock'n'Roll Bryn and asks Bob if he has plans to combine his loves of drama and rocking'. 

0:58:27 Check out his albums "Brother man" and "Vinyl"  on iTunes:
