Don't Give Up Your Day Job's Podcast
About This Show
Don’t Give Up Your Day Job is a podcast series from kiwi musicians Bobby Kennedy and Danny McCrum.
The idea of this podcast is to give people an insight into the real workings of the careers of creative professionals. The fact is creative professionals are fascinating characters who have had to work very hard and overcome many personal and professional obstacles. They are dedicated, multi-talented people who make great sacrifices and take great risks and we think this is worth celebrating.
So join us as we chat to musicians, producers, actors, artists, engineers and others about their professional and personal stories.
