A word on interviews

In it's previous incarnation, Bohemia After Dark was essentially a variety show. When I first hit the air in 1997, I had plans. Big plans. Stupendous plans.

And then I came to my senses.

Over the initial run, there were interviews -- actual discussions! Among the subjects I spoke with were authors & poets (Nathan Cabot Hale, normal, Mike Jurkovic, Jeff Bond), musicians (Mark Snow, Tom Lehrer) and luminaries (Joel Dorn, Stan Freberg). Many of these programs were archived poorly and thus, may not be usable again, which peeves me dearly, as I was the yutz doing the saving!

So I ask this fellow citizens -- would you like the added value of interviews along with the music?

Let me know if that's of interest.
