Old news, but good news: Lovett Live, music from Dream Boy

Last month, Richard Buckner appeared on the TV show Lovett Live. It’s show that features artists performing at the Lovett Auditorium in Kentucky.  The performance was filmed in September of last year. A short time before the filming, The Murray Ledger wrote an article on the show and interviewed Buckner about the recording of his new album: “Buckner performs Saturday as part of Lovett Live’s ongoing series” – Murray Ledger & Times. Below is a strange TV clip where a young girl gives the performance a five star review and interviews Richard about being on the Volkswagen commercial and being famous. (insert wise crack of your choice here.)

I also came across an article from 2009 in The Austin Chronicle titled “Whatever happened to Richard Buckner?” In the interview he talks about the year and a half he quit music for a “real job.” His “real jobs” included road flagging for a New York electric company, being a forklift operator at a factory and working at a school for autistic children. The full article: “Whatever Happened To Richard Buckner?” – The Austin Chronicle

In the above Austin Chronicle article, Buckner says “Instead of making a record, I did a film score and the film didn’t come out.” That film is called Dream Boy, it “chronicles the relationship between two gay teenagers in the rural south in the late 70’s.” The video below is not the trailer but a video someone posted on YouTube of some complete music from the film including the song “Remember” which features harmonies by Patty Griffin.
