Interview Bonanza!

What a week this has been! Here is the scoop on what went down and when…

Monday @ 4:20pm Call Todd Rundgren in his Hotel room

I did as much prep as I could for the TR interview. He is such a brilliant guy who has been in the business for over 40 years…

Tuesday @ 3pm Ben Folds comes by the Tuned In Broadcasting Lightning 100 studios

Ben Folds is someone I have been a fan of for a long time. Before I lived in Nashville, I lived in Cary, NC and Ben was based out of Chapel Hill NC at that point. He is not the easiest person to interview in the world and he gave me a great one!

Wednesday @ 1pm Announce Eddie Vedder concert, Then air Ben Folds interview

We barely got the Ben Folds interview edited and on air by 1pm. In fact, it aired a few minutes after 1pm. I had the big concert announcement to make for Eddie Vedder at the Ryman at 1pm and planned on airing the Ben Folds interview immediately afterward. Thanks to help from Justin Hammel I was able to get it on after playing an Eddie Vedder song but barely! All’s well that ends well…

Thursday @ noon interview Maureen Murphy

Today I had the lovely Maureen Murphy on my show for a great interview at noon. She is terrific and has an amazing voice. She has made it into the final two bands of our Music City Mayhem Local Lightning tournament sponsored by Yazoo Brew. She has the goods and I wish her all the best!

Thursday @ 1pm interview Moon Taxi

A couple of the guys from Moon Taxi came in for an interview at 1pm. They are competing today against Maureen Murphy to be the Music City Mayhem Champion. I have blogged about them before and am a big fan of their live show. These kids are talented musicians with a lot of potential. I wish them the best of luck as well.

Friday @ noon interview Ten out of Tenn

I will have at least 6 of the Ten out of Tenn on my show at noon tomorrow. It should be a lot of fun. They are coming off a successful west coast tour and have a hometown show Friday night at the Cannery Ballrooom. We will give away tickets to the show and to the documentary about them that will be airing at The Nashville Film Festival next week. I will also have a pair of tickets to give away to Eddie Vedder at the Ryman Auditorium!

More craziness is on the horizon…

Interviewing someone playing at 3rd & Lindsley next Friday @ noon

Interview the Dynamites next Friday @ 1pm

More interviews are tentative as we promote Earth Day next Saturday April 18th at Cenntennial Park. A fun free concert with some great local and national music.
