Sonic Boom 2013 is now nothing but a sweet memory for us…Blink 182 closed down the show at Northlands park…but before they hit the stage they allowed me to talk to the them for 5 minutes. Here is what happened…
Kings of Leon are set to release their new album “Mechanical Bull” next month (September 24). The bands drummer, Nathan Followill, called into Sonic to chat about it.
He says the is the best album they’ve ever made. He also talks about how hard it is to be good in the music game these days.
Before Queens of the Stone Age played their AMAZING SONiC Session in the Booster Juice Listener Lounge on Wednesday (you can stream it HERE), frontman Josh Homme and gee-tar man Troy Van Leeuwen popped by the SONiC 102.9 on-air studio to have a quick chat with Brandy Taylor about being cool, dry-humping, and Elton John. Check out the full interview below.
Queens of the Stone Age stopped by Sonic the other day for a Sonic Session. We laughed. We cried. We created memories. Oh, the band also played 3 acoustic songs. Take a listen to the interview, and our exclusive versions of “I Sat By the Ocean” “My God Is The Sun” and “Go With The Flow.”
California band The Mowgli’s are not just great musicians, they’re great people, hoping to inspire others to do some good and help out their fellow man. That’ s what their “Be a Mowgli” initiative is all about, and they’re so invested in it that they’ve set up a direct phone line for their fans to get a hold of them and talk about how we can make the world a better place.
I’ve tried calling the number in the past but have only ever gotten their voicemail, so when I called tonight to record their outgoing message to play on the radio, the last thing I expected was for their guitar player Michael Vincze to answer!
I only had a few minutes until I had to go talk on the radio, and I didn’t want to take up too much of their time as they weren’t expecting some crazy radio girl to call, so we kept things short. We did manage, though, to have a quick chat about doing good deeds, and about who they’re most excited to see at Lollapalooza this weekend (HINT: it’s a band that’s also playing SONiC BOOM!). Check it out below, and if you would like to try giving them a call, the number is (786)-7MOWGLI.
