In our HoboTrashcan 10 year retrospective, our 2013 interview with Billy West came in at number two. So, for those of you who missed it then, we are rebroadcasting it now with a new intro and remastered audio.
To say Billy West has had an eclectic career would be an understatement. From playing in rock bands to being a noted radio personality to doing voice work for Space Jam, Ren and Stimpy and Futurama, West has made a living off of his impressive pipes.
We talked to him about his career and his personal struggles. The almost hour-long interview includes West doing a few of his trademark voices and him opening up about his rough childhood and struggles with addiction. And it includes a song by West’s band – Billy West and the Grief Counselors. You are going to want to listen to this.
This week’s music:
Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
End – “I Gotta Get Laid” by Billy West and the Grief Counselors
