This week’s podcast show guest is my pal Bernie McPartland, the producer of this very podcast show. Quite honestly, he’s someone I should have had on months ago, so hopefully he’ll forgive me for the delay!

Bernie and his ’66 Chevelle – a 283/4-speed car.

I thought in this episode that it might be fun to go on a “behind the scenes” look at how each episode of The MuscleCar Place is created start to finish, so in this episode Bernie and I did just that.

During our discussion we went through how we coordinate show interviews, the various show segments, music overlays, voice overs, production timing, and everything in between. Bernie has been producing The MuscleCar Place since January of 2012, and many of you have shared with me, has really brought the show up to “radio” production levels. The audio quality, music overlays, interview cleaning, and professional voice-over work are all a result of Bernie’s participation!

Bernie is a ’66 Chevelle owner, a muscle car fanatic, and is (in his day job) a radio station show producer. He’s spent the past 20 years working for a KCBI, a Christian radio station Dallas, Texas. Late last fall I announced in a podcast show that I was seeking the help of a skilled show producer, mainly because I was ready to take The MuscleCar Place to a new level of production that was beyond me in both time and ability. Bernie answered the call back then, and it’s been hammer down ever since!

For those of you that would like to reach out to Bernie to chat about cars, radio production, or even to to a little work for hire, feel free to reach him at his e-mail address:

Here’s to a long lasting gig together!  Thanks for the interview, Bern!
