This will be our first remote podcast, airing live from the Rust Is Gold coffee and antique shop in Albuquerque. Not many of us are able to turn creativity into a successful commercial enterprise. Enter Steven "Fenix" Maes, musician, artist, filmmaker and motorcycle enthusiast.
A veteran of the music and film industries, Steve has brought one of his passions to life: cafe racer motorcycles. His documentary on the cafe rocker, "Caffeine and Gasoline," to be released later this year, is already receiving acclaim. The film has also engendered a new enthusiasm in Albuquerque for all things vintage, and Steve is meeting that demand with Rust Is Gold - a coffee shop, antique market and gathering place dedicated to all things vintage.
