My KUTX: Song Confessional

Song Confessional is a podcast with a unique idea. Co-creators Walker Lukens and Zac Catanzaro solicit unusual true stories from listeners, ranging from jumping out of Russian airplanes to a mother’s secret marijuana grow operation. Then, a band or songwriter turns that anonymous story into an original song. Each episode features the “confession” that inspires the original song, the song premiere, and an interview with the songwriter. Listen to the Song Confessional trailer here and find the first episode on November 8 wherever you listen to podcasts.

This week on My KUTX, Lukens and Catanzaro are the guest DJs. Their mix features the musical storytellers that inspired the podcast: Prince, Tom Waits, Bobbie Gentry, and more. Hear Song Confessional’s My KUTX on Saturday, November 2 at 6 p.m. or listen at any time below.
