We’re keeping it in the family this week on The Main Course as solo host Phillip Gilmour welcomes Heritage Radio Network’s Executive Producer Jack Inslee as well as musician Odetta Hartman. Jack chats with Phil about Heritage Radio Network’s inception and how he became an integral part of the station, plus shares some of his favorite radio moments. As conversation evolves, Phil tells an interesting true tale about the legend, Frank Sinatra before Jack and Odetta share their backgrounds. Notably, Odetta is a native New Yorker whose family is responsible for staple restaurants The Great Jones Cafe as well as Two Boots, and spends her time playing music plus teaching at the Lower Eastside Girls Club. Taking a break to the tune of Odetta’s brand new album “222” on the brink of official release, the show returns with a talk about concert bucket lists, crazy factoids about Odetta’s fam, and Phil’s favorite night at Momo Sushi Shack. This program was brought to you by Roberta’s Pizza.
“Odetta and I for the past year have been working on an album together. I produced her album, all her songs, this is the first project where she’s done everything herself… This project is called “222” – she plays everything so from violin to banjo to guitar to sound effects!” [22:22]

“I teach classes three times a week, teaching girls how to make beats, how to do interviews, podcasts, sound effects, and it’s really cool.” [18:33
