Studio M Memories

When I think back on my almost 10 years at Triple M, so many thoughts and memories rush in, particularly some of the artists  that I have met through Studio M. Getting up close and personal to people whose music I admire is a precious gift that I do not take for granted. One of the things I like the most is meeting artists on their way up. The John Butler Trio came in shortly after their first album, and left me slacked jawed at how great they were. I remember North Mississippi Allstars coming in during the time we were playing their song “Eyes”. They were so stoned out they didn't even remember the lyrics!  Paolo Nutini stopped by Studio M two times. The first time, he was about 19 years old. He is sweet, soft spoken and talks in a very strong Scottish brogue. Half the time I didn’t even understand what he was saying, but when he laughed I laughed. After we finished taping, we got to talking about his love of R & B and old school soul.  I gave him a copy of James Hunter’s CD “People Gonna Talk”, telling him that I thought he would like the album.  The next year he comes back for another Studio M, and before we even started setting up, he told me how much he loved that James Hunter album. I had even forgotten I had given it to him, and was very impressed that he remembered.  What a sweetie pie!       Compare that to Los Lonely Boys, whom I interviewed at least three times.  Each time, they totally didn't remember being here and meeting me. Warren Haynes made me choke up when he sang “Soulshine” at my request. Dan Hick (and the Hot Licks) gave me a hard time even before we started and I LOVED it. But my BIGGEST thrill was meeting Trey Anastasio. More on that tomorrow!

The problem with holiday sweaters--and it's not that they're ugly
