This interview took place on May 11, 2009 in the Boulder studios of KGNU 88.5 FM. We chatted and played the track Freak from Clay Cabe's Underworld (to be released Fall 2009) and the track Polygraph from Artridge's newest release Butterfly Wing Theory - Part 1. I played drums and percussion on both of these cuts and am producing The Underworld for Clay. A big shout out to Bill Nyerges for inviting me back into the studio - anytime Bill!
Bill invited me back to the KGNU studios a second time. He asked me to play some music from my upcoming CD release, The Goliath Beetle And The Ladybug. Fortunately I brought an 1/8 in to RCA adapter so we could take a line out from my laptop straight to the board!

Bill and I had met years ago and then lost touch. Nyerges didn't realize that his neighbor was my mother until recently when my mom mentioned that her son was a drummer and Bill simply guessed that it was me. We got back in touch in this on-air interview.
