In this week's episode, Brian Gray, executive director of the Carolina Theatre, drops by the studio to talk about the exciting new season at the Carolina. Also, Jeri and Nicole talk about the band scene in downtown Greensboro, place a call to Dr. Mellow and give a rundown of this week's headlines.Ego-caster that I am, I haven't listened to the whole episode yet, but I fast-forwarded to the part where they interviewed me. That starts at about 48:56 and goes to about 55:10 (they also mentioned me at the beginning of the show, at about 2:33). As I suspected, I sound kinda dorky, but I don't sound as bad as I had feared I would. The audio quality for the whole episode of GoRadio is not nearly as good as they usually are -- it kinda sounds like everyone is underwater; I wonder if something went awry in the encoding process. I, of course, also made at least one notable error. I claimed that Derek Trucks is in his early 20's, when he is, in fact, 26. That may be early 20's to some folks, but mid-20's would have been more accurate. Still, even though I didn't actually explicitly plug my web address (RadioDTB.com), I think I did OK for my first interview. It was very kind of Jeri and Nicole to let me talk about my own podcast in what could have been just a quick phone call about winning their vacation contest.
