Anyone that has worked in radio knows that guests appearing by phone are anything but prompt. It’s worse in rock radio. Phoner is scheduled for 3:30? Expect it to happen around 4:30 the next day. This was the case when I had the chance to interview Big Lew, the bass player in 10 Years.
When he finally called in I only had 4 minutes to squeeze in some good content. As late as he was, the 3:00 conversation was one of the most entertaining I’ve ever had. Not just in an interview. Ever.
