Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, my fine friends. Welcome to episode nine of season four of the Tom Petty Project Podcast! I am your host, Kevin Brown. This is the podcast that digs into the entire Tom Petty catalog song by song, album by album and includes conversations with musicians, fans, and people connected with Tom along the way.
Today’s episode is a fantastic conversation I had with Janet Lovell back in early July. Janet will be well known to members of the Tom Petty Nation and it was great to spend a couple of hours in her company and geek out over Tom and his music. Janet has a pretty incredible collection of Tom Petty memorabilia and she was incredibly gracious in sharing so much of it with me. However, as this is primarily an audio format, I’ve cut almost all the show and tell out and will edit together a YouTube video version of her showing me her treasures and will publish that some time this week as a fun little extra. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did and if I ever get a chance to head to Denver, I’m definitely going to be knocking on Janet’s door to sit with her and have her show me the rest of her collection!
