Gordon Deppe + Debbie Travis


This week on the Richard Crouse Show Podcast we meet Gordon Deppe, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for The Spoons. The writer of big hits like "Romantic Traffic," "Nova Heart," "Old Emotions" and "Tell No Lies" joins me to talk about what should have been a celebratory summer season for The Spoons, who turn forty years old this year, the band’s brand new album “New Day New World”—and play the title track for us live!—why he doesn’t feel like writing songs right now and what it is like being married to a front line worker. Then, we speak to tv host, author, designer and olive oil farmer, Debbie Travis. From her home in London, England she describes what’s happening in her neighborhood, why she left her retreat in Tuscany when the pandemic started and why may be the perfect time to reinvent your life, which just happens to be the subject of her best selling book, “Design Your Next Chapter: How to Realize Your Dreams and Reinvent Your Life, now out in paperback. Come visit with us! In isolation we are united!
