In conversation with Canadian industry icon Richard Flohil
Anyone who’s ever met Richard Flohil knows he has stories for days and is more than happy to share them, as is the case on this week's podcast.
Since moving to Canada from England as a jazz- and blues-loving teen journalist in the 1950s and then falling into the concert promotion business in the '60s, Richard has enjoyed a storied career as a concert promoter, publicist, music journalist, magazine editor, and general knows-everybody-type of guy in and around the business for over 50 years.
He’s met and worked with countless great artists, like blues legends Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Solomon Burke, and B.B. King, to more contemporary acts like Ani DiFranco and Serena Ryder. And did we mentioned he loves to tell stories? Sit back and hear a few of them in this career-spanning conversation.
