Kick Back With Dean Backholm and Bruce Hilliard Tunes

Hey everybody! My musical hometown Aberdeen WA and I welcome you to the Better Each Day Podcast Radio Show where you are my friends and listeners from all over the world...and me? I get to be the happy-go-lucky host Bruce Hilliard.

I mentioned Aberdeen because that’s where both of the guys you’re about to hear on this show hail from. The singer/songwriters I speak of are Dean Backholm and myself. Dean and I have worked together in the past but it’s been a while. To the tune of, oh I’m sure...decades.

About twenty years ago Dean recorded a solo album called A Question For You and it’s been a go to “feel good to hear Dean-o’s voice” record for me for all those years.

He doesn’t know it yet but we’re about to collaborate on a song or two in the near future. But for now, here’s a six song playlist I glued together featuring three of Dean’s songs and three of mine, every other track, starting with this love ballad by my lifelong friend, Dean Backholm. Here’s Montreal.
