Nick Alexander is known as the Catholic Weird Al. He writes wonderful, funny and thought provoking Catholic parodies of popular songs. He also writes Praise and Worship music. His new project is Top Catholic Songs, which hosts a site for user generated voting on Top Ten lists of Catholic Music. We had a wonderful conversation ranging from 80′s pop and Christian rock music, questions of faith, to the nuts and bolts of songwriting. Nick also shared some of his novel ideas for how niche indie musicians can market their music. We had alot of fun recording this episode. I hope you enjoy listening to it.
