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.

Dennis is joined by actor-filmmaker Scott T. Hinson to talk about his pandemic diversion turned full-on obsession; creating his own audio music countdowns, starting with My 80's Countdown...and then moving on to the 70's and 90's. He talks about the MTV veejays who inspired him to embark on this project and his multi-step process for choosing his Top 20 songs--there's a point system and notecards involved.  Scott also recalls being assaulted on a public bus last summer over a mask disagreement and the Firefall song that brought him comfort in ther aftermath. He also talks about the two fan letters he's written in his life; to Cher and Dolly Parton...and receiving a reply back from one of them. Other topics include: why Pizza Hut has great jukeboxes, being surprised by Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl," having FOMO over the Bangles' "Walk Like An Egyptian," having a change of heart over U2's "With Or Without You," why he thinks all pop music post 2010 "sounds like the same girl yelling at me about how strong she is."
