He booked The Ozark Mountain Daredevils to play for $500 for two shows in 1972 while still in high school. He worked for the Kansas City Star and was the youngest department manager at 26 at the time. But soon thereafter he answered a calling to go into the ministry, and Jim Oman's life has been centered there ever since. I met him at 4 By 4 Brewing Company, where he's affectionately known as "The Rev", and thought a podcast between a cynical agnostic and a Methodist Pastor might make for a good show. In the spirit of the holidays, two friends in different camps come together to enjoy a conversation over a few pints and for me it was a history & context lesson that was a beautiful experience. It's not about answers, it's about a good conversation. Cheers, and enjoy!
