As a wrap-up to our trip to Dallas and Season 1 of Small Town Famous™, we spend the day with STF Crewmember and Sound Engineer/Producer, Aaron Willis! This is part 1 of a 2-part podcast.
Aaron, known by many as the "King of Audio Engineers", not only gives Small Town Famous our signature sound. He is best known as the Sound Engineer for comedian Tim Hawkins. Aaron sits down with the rest of the team at our STF Satellite Office (Aaron's house). But, this time he is in FRONT of the mic!
Aaron had met up with the gang upon our arrival at Top Golf in Dallas. We discuss our adventure to Top Golf. But, the real comedy happens when Jordan talks Romey into coercing the crew into a trip to Zero Gravity (see the results of the latter on a hilarious Facebook video!). It's a move that Jordan regrets rather quickly. See the video and you will know why! We talk about the end of the night festivities that thankfully everyone walked away from as Aaron escorts us to the seediest Karaoke place in the DFW area.
During our recording session, Aaron drops a big surprise on the crew as a gift! We find out that Jordan apparently doesn’t like heights, Fro can sleep right through a podcast recording session, Alan has a unique ability to insult someone in a manner described as “Ridicule By a Thousand Cuts” and that Romey is a “real man”.
Chase navigates us through the ever-popular "STF Rapid Fire"! He also tells us about his early morning business meeting with a barefooted-mystery man at the Hampton Inn breakfast cornucopia. Aaron tells his and his wife's "squeaky bed" anniversary story. And, Jordan finishes with his story of not being allowed to fly a paper airplane by the military. Oh, and J lays down the hammer with his unilateral “quiet beef” with Tim Hawkins (who we all love, by the way. This is totally between Jordan and Tim).
There’s so many topics, you’ll just have to listen to catch ‘em all!
