Sacramento is lucky to have a few open minded public radio stations that reflect what's going on in
the community. One of those stations is 88.7 The Voice, where Mike Lidskin does his weekly Saturday
show called Twirl Radio. After I interviewed Mike before his
show on Saturday, January 19, he interviewed me on his show. It was a treat to bring my guitar and
play one of my original songs called "Sky Blue Heaven." Not
only was this one of the best interviews anyone has done with me, it made me realize independent shows
like this are rare.
I've explored public radio around the nation with my other website PlaylistResearch.com
and found that not every city offers their community of local artists a chance to express themselves on the air.
California happens to be ahead of the curve than many places when it comes to public radio, although
some of the best public stations are mainly found in big cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco.
This interview captures the essence of public radio welcoming the local scene.

Below are a series of interviews between Mike and me. In the first one Mike interviewed me in January
2012. A year later I returned to Twirl Radio as Mike and I interviewed each other on January 19, 2013.
