MMMM - Mike on the Moheak Music Meeting
In advance of The Big Beat's premiere on Moheak Radio, my friend Bruce Rave invited me to phone in and take part in the station's weekly music meeting that he hosts Thursdays from 7 to 9pm Pacific. Bruce is a highly respected former A&R man at Capitol Records instrumental in the acquisition and development of such artists as The Knack, Iron Maiden, Duran Duran, Missing Persons, The Motels, Weird Al Yankovic, The Church, and Thomas Dolby. In addition to hosting the Music Meeting, he hosts a weekly show on the station, Go Deep with Bruce Rave, an extension of his blog of the same name.
The show rates and debates new releases in a roundtable format and for my hour, I was joined on the show by TV producer Stephen Gelber. If you'd like to listen, I come in at roughly the 52 minute mark. Moheak DJ's Lina Lecaro and Jean Luc Gaudry bookend my portion of the show. Even on the phone, you can tell I've never met a microphone I didn't like.
You'll hear new releases from Santigold, Nada Surf, The Ting Tings, The 2 Bears, Young Hines, The Cribs, La Sera, Heartless Bastards, The Couch, Gorillaz/James Murphy/Andre 3000, Fidlar, Django Django, Radiohead, Amadou & Mariam, The Shins, Brandon Benson, Grimes, Maribel, and Yoofs.
