I Am Archived

If you read my previous posting then you know that last Friday I made my long awaited appearance on “The Louie Free Show.” The interview has now been archived and will be available for three weeks. If you’d like to listen, click here, then click on “Part 1” under December 14. When the file downloads completely, move the button on the player to approximately the ¾ point. My segment comes on just after the Mario Cuomo promo, begins with “Blue Lights,” and runs till the end of the show. Enjoy! And please let me know what you think.

The Louie Interview

Friday I was privileged to be on “The Louie Free Show,” which broadcasts weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m. from Youngstown, Ohio, and also streams (and is archived) on the Internet. Louie is an amazing guy who exemplifies what this season—and all seasons—should be about: love, respect, idealism. He is a joy to talk to, and I feel very lucky that he is so passionate about my music, especially the song “Blue Lights.” He was quite taken with the pictures of my parents (who inspired “Blue Lights”) that are on the CD’s back cover: my dad in helmet and goggles stepping into an open-cockpit plane; my mom in a cheesecake self-portrait. We also spoke about other songs on the CD, such as “Midnight in California,” inspired by a trip to Mallorca, which he played along with “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The show should be archived Monday or Tuesday; check back here and I’ll tell you where to find my segment (which lasted about half an hour). I’ll also let you know when I’ll be on again, perhaps as soon as one day this week. Thanks again to Louie!

Radio Play Update

Hi! I was supposed to be on “The Louie Free Show” this afternoon but unfortunately the show today was canceled. I’d like to apologize to all my fans around the world who were looking forward to this and perhaps planning their day around it—just kidding! Anyway, Louie’s been playing “Blue Lights” quite a bit, even calling it “an instant Christmas classic.” He’s gotten a good response to it from his listeners in Ohio, and now a cafĂ©/store there called the Flaming Ice Cube is selling my CD. So if you get a chance, tune in to the show any weekday between 3 and 7 ET to hear “Blue Lights” (and perhaps soon other songs from the CD) on the radio, or listen to recent shows in the archives, and I’ll let you know when Louie’s interview with me has been rescheduled. And by the way, tell me if you notice a trend of only blue lights on Christmas trees…
