Lucky Oceans is so well known around Fremantle to anyone with even a passing interest in music that he needs no introduction. He has played with many big names here in Australia and elsewhere. His work with the Zydecats around Freo is legendary. He’s also well known around the country for hosting the long running Radio National spot, Daily Planet where he helped improve the musical appreciation of a couple generations of Aussies. And he’s famous in his country of origin the USA, not least for nearly being more popular than the Beatles! Asleep at the Wheel nearly surpassed them and they have the Grammys to prove it!
In this interview, Lucky talks about his career, his music, and what makes Fremantle the music town it is. His famous pedal steel guitar is also on show, so to speak, on the accompanying audio clip where Lucky features with Ben Vanderwal on drums and Dave Brewer on guitar. Listen now! And make sure to catch Lucky and Friends during Hidden Treasures, soon in Freo.
