P&V Radio: Ben Tanner & Hervé Villemade Cheverny Rouge
Ben Tanner is a music engineer who once worked for FAME studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, is one-third of the founding partners of indie label Single Lock Records in Florence, Alabama and, is the touring keyboardist with the Alabama Shakes. The band traveled through New Orleans in late September and Ben took some time to hang out with me, drink a bottle of Hervé Villemade Cheverny Rouge and make this podcast.
We talk about Ben's experience living in France during college, how he first got into wine, touring with the Alabama Shakes, and Robert Parker. We've known each other for a few years and I was thrilled he agreed to be a guest. Then again, drinking and talking is something we've done together many times...
We're drinking the very delicious Hervé Villemade Cheverny Rouge 2014.
