DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

As a tribute to the late great Olivia Newton-John, Dennis revisits this conversation from early 2020 with performer John Cantwell on the eve of his ONJ inspired spectacular A Little More Love Connie. John recalls the road trip to Houston he took recently where he listened to Olivia's entire catalog and didn't repeat a song until he got to San Antonio. Then Dennis and John then discuss their favorite ONJ tracks, getting to meet her, the unique quality of her voice, mispronouncing the word Xanadu and the Grease vs. Grease 2 debate. Then Dennis and John take an online ONJ quiz and crush it. Other topics include: performing as Love Connie for the first time in front of family members, Slut Rock, reinvention, white girl scatting and his theory that as Love Connie, he's just doing what he did in his bedroom in 6th grade, singing along to ONJ with a hairbrush for a microphone...except now he's getting paid to go it.
