  1. Hey, I just spotted this interview with Jerry Dixey is up, and ready to listen to. I’m anxious to hear it, but its time to head out into the garage and finish shooting a tech for the new issue of American Truck.

    At the Syracuse Nationals last year I spent a little time hanging out with Jerry, and learned Jerry man’s the Road Tour hot line with his cell phone. That’s right, if folks need an update, or to handle anything connected with the Road Tour, Jerry is easy to reach. That’s pretty amazing service huh?

  2. I got a chance to listen to Jerry speak with Kevin, and as I suspected it was a pretty interesting interview.

    In fact all of the Shop Talk interviews, Kevin is doing are enjoyable. A lot of historical facts, and tech info come out that one wouldn’t normally hear.

    The only downside is I can’t listen to them like background noise, I have to stop everything and pay attention.

    I’d like to hear an interview with Gary Chopit, Bo Huff, or Troy Ladd. Not to mention Bill Hines, or Robert Marianich, or Gordie Brown… Steve Stanford.

    Holy cow, the list just goes on.

  3. Man, there’s too many incredibly interesting people out there, and just not enough hours in the day to talk with everybody… I love doing these interviews… it makes me feel small, but in a good way! I feel like Im a kid again! Thanks for listening. 🙂
