2018 Twirl Radio Interviews

Musically speaking, the year 2018 has been stellar in so many ways. The quantity and quality of the music that came my way has been astounding. I received more music than I do in most typical years, and the quality has been uniformly top notch. We heard from old friends, and got introduced to some new artists.

And for me, the thing that’s really gone hand in hand with this new music has been the chance to chat with some of the artists on my show. So many of them have made themselves available to me this year–and for that, I’m extremely grateful. In some cases, the artists were passing through Sacramento on a Saturday, and were able to stop by my studio in person. In a few other instances, I was given a couple of extra hours for my show, so I was able to squeeze in 2 and 3 interviews in one day.

What’s the final tally look like? In 2018, I conducted 55 interviews. That number becomes even more amazing when you realize that there were a few weeks where I had no interviews, or took the Saturday off from doing my show. 16 of these interviews were done in person, in the Sacramento studio. 2 were prerecorded in person in Fresno, and 4 others were prerecorded via Skype or telephone, due to time zone or availability issues. That means that 49 of these interviews were conducted live, on the radio. 6 of these included a live, in-studio performance. In all, more than 70 individuals have been on the show with me.

So here’s the rundown of the interviews, with my sincere thanks and happy holidays to all the artists who were kind enough to spend a little time with me on Twirl Radio in 2018.
