Oak Cliff’s own guitar hero Jimmie Vaughan was interviewed on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast in an episode that aired on Thanksgiving.

Maron says he is a longtime fan of Vaughan and was “starstruck” after meeting him in Austin one time.

Vaughan, who was born and raised in Oak Cliff, talks about growing up here, including a short-lived stint taking music lessons at Boyd’s on Jefferson Boulevard.

He also talks about the early days of his career, sobriety and making the “Family Style” album with his brother, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Find the full interview here. If you’ve never listened to “WTF” before, be warned that it contains a lot of F-bombs. The Jimmie Vaughan interview starts around the 54-minute mark.

Coincidentally, our December cover story is all about Oak Cliff’s garage-rock scene, of which the Vaughan brothers and many other successful musicians were a part. Find that hanging from your doorknob or right cheer.
