Thanks for listing to Next Lawyer Up with Attorney Ron Sykstus. We put much time and care into this podcast and hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it.

Alternative Rock music became popular in the 1980’s as an “alternative” to mainstream or commercial rock.  Fans of this genre are likely familiar with the music of bands like REM and 10,000 Maniacs.  Perhaps not quite as prominent, but in my opinion just as good, was a band by the name Blake Babies whose name came from the beat poet, Allen Ginsburg.  John Strohm was a co-founder and guitarist in Blake Babies.  He also was a member of Antenna and the Lemonheads, in addition to having a solo career.  So why is John featured on the Next Lawyer Up podcast?  Taking his musical career as far as he cared to, John migrated to Birmingham, Alabama and finished college at UAB and then, looking for a career path, he attended Cumberland School of Law at Samford University.  He did well there and served as Editor in Chief of the Cumberland Law Review.  John then worked for a period of time in Birmingham but, never far from music. He then started a music law practice that culminated in him working for the entertainment law firm of Loeb and Loeb in their Nashville office.  John has kept music close to his heart and now serves as president of Rounder Records.  If you see a Blake Babies reunion date near you, please go!  I promise that you will like this music!  Two of my favorites include Temptation Eyes and Out There. You’ll really enjoy this podcast if you listen to and watch the videos of some of his songs first.
