Had a blast from my past when radio producer Ted Lekas asked me if I had a recording of the show I did with Mark & Brian on KLOS 95.5. My personal historian and webmaster, Dave Muhr, had that little gem tucked away and I pulled it out yesterday to take a listen. What flabbergasts me is that it was TEN years ago! Seems like yesterday I was hanging with band mates Paul Trudeau, Christopher Allis and Harvey Lane in that studio which transformed into what felt like a living room with Mark, Brian, Priva and Ted. It felt so comfortable that I forgot there were thousands of people on the other end of the radio waves. Wanna hear? (The links are to Sound Cloud which hosts the files.)
1. Immortal snippet, the welcome, the Jani Lane connection, introductions, Unavailable Billy (Live)
2. 4 Hours snippet, taking calls, Angels, writing regime, the early days, Immortal (Live)
3. Unavailable Billy snippet, taking more calls, 818 (Live)
4. Domino snippet, more calls, How I Met Paul, alienating our ex-es & performance of Sick of Myself (Live)
So where am I today?? Instead of making fun of ex boyfriends, I laugh over the silliness of my kids. Instead of wondering how long I will have to take the roller coaster of independent artistry by myself, I (and my label JamCat Records) have a trusted and loyal partner in Blue Élan Records. What amazes me most, is that the fans that called in to that show that day still support me ten years later, come to my shows and contribute as Angels to my recording projects. In those ten years, I toured all over the world, put out 3 more records and an EP, got married, had twins, survived cancer and got a record deal. I am #lucky, #blessed and #grateful.
