Pearl Jam Radio Sirium FM with Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready

On Dec 1, 2010, I had the pleasure of becoming the first official guest on the new interactive fan roundtable call-in show, ironically named The All Encompassing Trip, on Pearl Jam Radio Sirius XM.

From their studios in San Rafael, CA and Seattle, WA, hosts The Rob and Ten Club manager Tim Bierman called me in London, UK to chat about the book and reminisced about tour stories on the road, while being broadcasted from New York, NY to the rest of the world.

We took calls from listeners that included Laura Trafton from the Wishlist Foundation as well as Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready from Pearl Jam.

Listen to what Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready had to say to me about the book during the broadcast below.

Interview on The 90’s at Noon with Neil Morrison on CFOX 99.3

To promote my home town book signing event in Vancouver, I had the privilege of hanging out with Neil Morrison as a guest host for his show The 90’s At Noon on Western Canada’s number one rock radio station CFox 99.3 on Jan 7, 2011.

Amongst discussing the story in detail and plugging the book signing, I was handed full control of the playlist for the hour-long show and took full advantage.

Interview on The Rick Emerson Show

I did an interview on The Rick Emerson Show in Portland, OR to promote my book signing event at Easy Street Records in Seattle, WA. This former nationally syndicated show has a unique format where the listeners have control over the content. Apparently, my story was what the listeners wanted to hear about on Jan 11, 2011.

Interview on Given to cast

Mario from Corpus Christi, TX was gracious enough to have me on his internet podcast, Given To Cast, on Oct 25, 2010 to promote my book before the official release date. This was not only the first interview I did for my book promotions, but it was probably my first radio/podcast interview of any sorts. To celebrate the occasion, we gave away a free copy of the book.
