Dad Tunes: Dire Straits (with guest Tyler Darling)

Dad Tunes: Dire Straits (with guest Tyler Darling)

In our 4th installment of Dad Tunes, we chat about Dire Straits' self-titled debut record with help from our good friend (and possibly long-lost triplet) Tyler Darling - host of I Turn My Podcast On. We dig into J.J. Cale's blues and rockabilly-infused Tulsa sound that was a huge influence on Mark Knopfler's unique guitar tone and vocal style that made Dire Straits such a unique entry into the rock landscape of the late 70s.
