Read more about Michael after the jump.
To say that Michael O’Neal has had an impact on Radio Free Texas is an understatement. The very program for which his new CD was chosen was inspired by a conversation about O’Neal.
Many years ago, a conversation was had here at RFT that was like so many had by fans of OKOM. It started like this…
“Why in the hell haven’t more people heard this guy?”
Sound familiar? This particular conversation on this particular day was about Michael O’Neal. It was from this conversation that the RFT All Access Program was born. And we are excited to have Michael’s music back for another round at the All Access table.
Michael O’Neal is the personification of everything right about this music scene. He’s a storyteller, a family man and one of the most humble human beings that you’ll ever meet. And like all good storytellers, his songs have a way of grabbing your attention and keeping you there until the end.
But it’s not just reciting a story. Think about all of those interviews that you see with World War 2 veterans telling their war stories. They are real, earthy and touched with a twinge of sadness. That’s Michael’s music.
Do yourself a favor. If you haven’t drank from the O’Neal well yet, do it.
