DENNIS ANYONE? Yes please!
Do you want to know what it's really like to struggle as an artist? Do you have great affection for what you do, know you have the skills, and STILL can't catch a break? Well, take a stool next to Dennis Hensley and marvel at his conversational skills with such wonderful guests as James La Rosa, Willem Belli, Bryan Thompson and Jonathan Tolins. Dennis' travails come through loud and clear. There's a through line here, no matter who is on as his guest, which resonates so deeply with me, and hopefully should for you too. He makes people open up and tell the truth. It's a gift worth celebrating.
