John Tobler, Rock's Backpages audio, 1986

The Texan songsmith talks about having his songs covered by others; not regarding himself as a country singer but as a songwriter; writing for himself rather than for other people; collaborating with his wife, painter-songwriter Susanna; his writing process; his musical roots in folk and blues, and his relationship with language.
