I want to hear about what's important to YOU.
A song, a message to someone you love, your kids have been driving you crazy all day and finally you got a little peace or you're working late and I can keep you company! I am right here with the tunes, weeknights from 8 to midnight!
It's fun to hear about whats going on with you too. Hey and btw, lots of people have been suggesting themes for the show. Not much I won't ask the audience about!
Pregnant? Are you going natural or medicated thru delivery? What's the last thing you fought about with your spouse/boyfirend/girlfriend? Every caught a cheater? How'd ya know? When is it the right age to talk to your kids about the birds and the bees?
Got another question you are curious about? Country Music is all about Real Life and so is my show!
Talk to you soon!
I have been a huge Martina McBride fan from the first time I met her in 1995 when she hit with 'Independence Day.'
Here's a picture with Martina that I took when I was a bit younger and lots heavier!

Then, a few years later, I had the idea of marrying a couple on my show for Valentine's Day and having Martina come in and sing to the bride and groom after they exchanged vows on the air! It was a crazy idea that I honestly couldn't believe all came together.
Not only did Martina sing 'Valentine' with a few band members playing acoustic instruments but she also did 'This One's For the Girl's.' Both of these songs I've linked below were recorded BY ME, with nothing more than the dj microphones in the studio and a computer recording her. One take, no redo's, no seperate tracks, no processing, no effects. Just Martina, a keyboard, an accoustic guitar and a couple of back up vocalists.
I still get goosebumps hearing this and will never forget Martina's kindness and her amazing talent.
Martina, You are a shining example of what makes Country Music all that it is! Thank you for everything you've done over the years.
Much success to you and John with Blackbird Studio!
AND- Happy Birthday. Here's to 47 more!
Here are the two files from Martina's visit with me!
