    Our guest today is musician Peter Catucci, who has carved a pretty incredible career in the music industry since he started groovin’ in the early 1960s. We couldn’t chat with Peter without also bringing on his original groupie, Ken Ford. We also gave the Writer’s Bone crew an assignment, and, as it turned out, a difficult one. We asked our contributors to choose an album that changed their lives. It didn’t necessarily mean it was their favorite album of all time or one generally regarded as the best, but it had to fundamentally altered their reality in some way. This project also gave us an excuse to check in with everyone in our Writer’s Bone community, much like the epic phone chain in the new "Parks and Recreation" episode that ran recently. Discover all the albums we mention in this episode on our Spotify playlist. Today’s episode is sponsored by Libro.fm and OneRoom.
