Playlist August 6, 2005 (Interview Nick Rhodes)

Tonight I broadcast an interview I recorded with Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran on Thursday afternoon, July 21, 2005, just before they played the Midland Theatre here in KC (July 23rd). As I've said in a previous post, it will be re-broadcast Wed. night/Thursday morning (Aug. 11th) on Chux Mix, which airs from 1am to 5am.

I have to admit that leading up to the interview with the classic Duran Duran song "Careless Memories" finally made me realize how real the interview had been, and what it meant to me to get the opportunity to do it. It's indescribable, that feeling. :)
I hope it made for interesting listening, and I hope you got some laughs from it as well. I know I did. :D Unfortunately, (sort of), I got lots of calls afterwards, and had a hard time keeping the show sounding smooth (at least from my standpoint). I also may have missed writing down some of the songs I played, but I'm typing up what I have on paper. Also, I broke some of my rules this weekend... but I'm sure you can relate. We all have off nights.
