There are a ton of new Dave Lawrence interviews, and with some major artists, too. Lucky you can hear all of it in the player on the right. Here are some of the interesting people he talked story with this fall:
Save it for later: The English Beat are back with a new boxed set called The Complete Beat, and Dave Wakeling, the famous voice of the band, called up brother Dave for a raucous laugh a thon where they dealt out the cards on all the old stories, how the band connected with radio legend John Peel, the story behind Pete Townshend covering Save it for Later (you’ll never believe who was with Pete when he called Dave Wakeling to find out how to play the song!), details on how they did the videos. Too much fun to legitimately be called work! This was in late November, just in time for the holiday, mates!
If you like ukulele, you obviously like Jake Shimabukuro. He was in the studio with Dave and they recorded a radio special during this half hour of talking and playing music. Very upscale. Maybe button your shirt? Just recorded in Nov. 2012.
See part two here.
Sublime! Now ‘With Rome’ and DL again talked with Rome when they played Honolulu in November. Here is the video of them chilling out on Rome’s balcony. Super cool! Doesn’t get any mellower:
Chicago are coming to the Blaisdell Arena and Dave spoke with one of them, the drummer Tris Imboden who was with Kenny Loggins, another island core music artist, and it was in November sometime. He’s one of the many talented “session” drummers and has played for everyone from Neil Diamond to Roger Daltrey recording music. He used to live here so it was a nice chat.
Jah Rastafari! Stephen Marley is in the house! Look out. A special November interview on the phone with one of Bob’s children. Quite a fun call.
Tom Moffatt is a legend in Hawaii and Dave spoke with him in Nov. 2012 about Elvis Presley, who Tom is famous in Hawaii for presenting in concert a long time ago. He is playing the video of the Elvis Presley Aloha From Hawaii movie and Dave is seen in this video discussing it with Tom, at HPR.
Also a nice photo with Tom Moffatt the concert promoter and Dave Lawrence:
If you like Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal or Dr. John, this is one of their keyboardists, Jon Cleary, who Dave had on the show one day before his concert in Honolulu around Halloween:
Maybe you saw this guy on with Howard Stern or on TV shows, it’s Craig Gass the comedian, who visited HPR in October 2012.
Guitarist Joe Bonamassa called in to the show in October.
Jazz legend Eddie Palmieri spoke to Dave on the phone one day before a brief stop in Honolulu in Oct. 2012!
Theory of a Deadman played at the Republik in September and their singer Tyler spoke with Dave backstage. Take a look at the video:
Dave got cooking in a call from chef Robert Irvine of Restaurant Impossible on the Food Network also in Sept:
Glen Campbell was on in September!!!!!!!!!!!
Wish there was video of this, but oh well.
