April 16, 2007 Playlist w/ Host Bob Dubrow

Dave Mattacks, former drummer for Fairport Convention as well as on tons of sessions with other remarkable musicians, was scheduled for an interview today, but the nor'easter and Boston Marathon put the fear of "no available parking" in him. He is re-scheduled for May 14.

So I brought along a friend named Chris Bean (who also drums, by chance), one of the funniest fellows I know...but he proved to be extremely recalcitrant when it came to talking on mic. This became something of a constant distraction, as I tried to engage him despite his stubbornness, and it's quite possible the show suffered as a although some "regulars" called full of compliments, I did receive this email:

"Hi. I listen to the entire show almost every day. Today I had to change the dial. It was excruciatingly bad. Sorry. Less talking. More music. No more children, please." (This last was in reference to the small cassette bit I played from my childhood during the last 10 minutes of the if she heard that, then it would appear that she remained a listener for 110 minutes of excruciating badness before getting disgusted enough to switch stations. I mean, why subject oneself?)

You can't please everybody. But I have to say that it was not one of my fave shows. Now you can listen and decide for yourself (if you dare)!
