Title: KBRP Interview with Dan Phillips, April 07, 2007

On, April 7, 2007, KBRP, Radio Free Bisbee, broadcasted a New Orleans music special from 12:00 Noon - 2:30 PM US Mountain Time* (19:00:00 UTC/GMT for you outside the US, if that helps). The show aired via the internet program stream linked at their website. I bring this up because it was an effort on their part to make listeners more aware of New Orleans music, and the bulk of the program material for the show comes from the HOTG Archives. So, you can hear some of the rare stuff I've previously posted on HOTG, plus some more general New Orleans musical selections. I didn't program the show, but have a friend (who wants to continue to live the anonymous life) in Bisbee who did.

The interview with me about HOTG and New Orleans music in general is replayed here (listen if you dare). No real groundbreaking revelations in it (that I recall - it was a blur of verbalization over phone lines- I am sure I left out far more than I put in); but, if you want to hear me pontificate, here's your brief window of opportunity. I was "grilled" by at least three of the music gurus out at the station, who asked intelligent questions and actually made me think! It was after a full day of work and a big Mexican meal (luckily for all concerned, I drank no beer!), so, I just hope I was vaguely coherent. Judge for yourselves. Seriously, I am honored that the folks at KBRP wanted to talk to me; and I really appreciate their desire to help support New Orleans music, musicans, and culture. So, thanks to them for the airtime and the bandwidth!
