Artwork for Third Gear Scratch

Third Gear Scratch

Allen Epley
TV & FilmMusic

Musician/engineer/bartender Allen Epley talks with artists of all walks and at all levels of success about their own unique journeys and jobs they've worked in order to follow their passions. Many successful musicians, actors, filmmakers, composers, and comedians still have side gigs that afford them the ability to create their art for us. Some get to work in their chosen field and some work jobs that are convenient and make that buck. It is this unique hustle that's at the heart of this podcast. How exactly does the sausage get made when there are bills to be paid? And what drives these maniacs to make our desperate lives better with their art when the pay-off often fulfills their hearts but not their bank accounts?

  • For creatives of any stripe

    Epley has gathered a great assortment of artists whose work continues to inspire. The 100+ and counting shows are filled with great conversations where he ably frames their stories with a kind wit and humor that shows such a genuine regard and friendship full of mutual admiration. I’m of the generation who were in their twenties through the 90’s boom and bust of major labels signing these bands I loved and this show has brought me a clearer understanding of what the careers of these bands I so... more

  • The episode I needed

    I’ve loved most episodes of this podcast, the Ken Andrews episode was everything I had always hoped this would be. Relating to jamming for hours and recording everything and then going fishing for gems and inspiration. “If I can’t turn my system on in 30 seconds I record on my phone.” So great. So familiar. I love it big A. Please keep it up. Keep it safe. See you in Birdhands in MPLS

  • Shop Talk for Musicians

    I love listening to this show. Being a music lover and musician most show are compelling. Being able to listen to industry people speaking of their struggles and successes has been very inspiring. These aren’t people most know. They exist in certain circles that they are notable in. So that can also help turn the listener on to something new. A new music or for a musician a new approach. Alan is fun to listen to and seems an all around good and respected guy. I like being able to be privy to wha... more
