Favorite Live from Studio M's

Probably the best part of my job is getting a chance to meet and interview some of my favorite artists. Here is a short list of some of my favorite Studio M's. We, of course, have to start with Trey Anastasio. Phish had broken up  at the time and his solo album had just been released. Of course, I was SO excitedto meet him.  What a gentleman. I waked into the room and he says " Hi, I'm Trey, thanks for having me". I told him this was the second biggest thrill in my life, next to making Frank Zappa  laugh. I knew Trey was a Zappa fan, and that led to a nice long pre-interview chat about Frank. Heaven!trey When  Paolo Nutini came by the first time, he was still about 19 years old. He is a totally sweetie pie, but he spoke in such a strong Scottish brogue it was hard to understand him. It didn't help that he kept his head down and spoke very softly. Half the time I didn't even understand what he was saying, but the music was great, so it didn't matter. During the interview he talked about how much he likes  soul music and I turned him onto Brit blue-eyed soul singer James Hunter. The next time Paolo came through, the first thing he said to me was " I really like that James Hunter album you gave me". I had even forgotten I had given it to him, so I was impressed with his memory and graciousness. James Hunter was here about a year ago to open for Susan Tedeschi at the Barrymore. It was a Saturday and we invited both Susan and James to come in for a Studio M. Jonathan was interviewing Susan, and James was to come in after that. Except he showed up at the same time. I was very excited to meet him because I am totally in love with his music. I was quite nervous when he arrived, but after hanging in the green room for 45 minutes telling jokes and generally fooling around, the interview felt like chatting with an old friend. Young Davy Knowles of Back Door Slam came in by himself. At first I was not too pleased because he only plays with a few other artists and why was he coming alone to play acoustic when he can rock out? Well, I learned what shredding sounds like on an acoustic guitar and I give major  props to him, You may not know, because we edited it out, but, I accidentally called him Danny in the intro,  and now that is a private joke between us. How cool is that! More tomorrow.. including Warren Haynes who almost made me cry,  Dan Hicks  who tried to give me a hard time, and a band I have stayed in touch with over the years, De Sol.
