Cate Meighan- Host of Cate's Musical Diary & Boom Radio's All Request Sunday Night


Cate & Exposé

Where do you live- 
The eastern shore of MD

Earliest musical memory-
Being in the studio with my dad at night during his live radio. Also, my dad spinning the 12" version of Blondie's "Heart of Glass" nonstop at a Halloween party. I was maybe 7 & it was an adult party but they humored me with Cleopatra eyeliner and big hair while insisting I avoid the punch bowl and brownies. Not sure which one came first.

The first album you bought- 
Pat Benatar's Crimes of Passion. Technically my dad bought it for me because he was trying to break me away from disco. The first album that I remember buying with my money was actually a compilation that had Flock of SeagullsKim Wilde, Foreigner & Bow Wow Wow on it.

First concert- 
I think it was 1988, it was Guns N' Roses and Aerosmith at a racetrack in PA. GNR was new and we couldn't wait to see them, even more than Aerosmith. The concert was fantastic and the night was really memorable because it had been pouring for days and everything was mud. We all lost our shoes & I remember there being a photo in the local paper a few days later of all the shoes left behind once the ground started to dry! 

Last concert attended-
Jody Watley at a supper club in DC

You just got off of a plane & are standing in your dream location, where are you? 
France. Or a castle in Banff.

Favorite memory- 
So many & they usually include a really connected conversation with someone. Also, walking in NYC alone at night. That sounds strange but it is one of my favorite things on earth, just soaking up everything (especially the creativity) around me but not having to be "on".

Bucket list goal- 
I really want my pilot's license. Seriously.

Finish this sentence-
"This time next year I'll have TWO books on shelves in book stores."

You're hosting a dinner with 3 living artists & 3 that have died. Who will be there?

Living:
 
David Coverdale (for the stories)
Tom Gimbel (for the guaranteed humor)

T-Bone Hosts T-Bone's Prime Cuts each Saturday afternoon at 1pm EST & T-Bone's Tribute Tuesdays



Where do you live- 
Just Northeast of Indianapolis, IN

Earliest musical memory-
I wasn't allowed to listen to "rock" music as a child...but I vividly remember being in 7th grade and all of my friends talking about KISS. I hadn't heard them, but I knew all of their names!

The first album you bought- 
Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band - The Distance

First concert- 
Billy Joel - April 4, 1984 - Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.
My girlfriend at the time had bought tickets for her and her previous boyfriend before we had met. I told her I didn't want to go as I wasn't a fan. She asked if it would be okay if she went with her previous boyfriend... I WENT! lol Became a Billy Joel fan that night and I still am.

Last concert attended- 
Hall & Oates - May 28, 2013 - Palace Theatre in Louisville, KY.
I was working for the band by this time (worked for them from 2008-18) but this was the first and only time seeing them live. I had been to a handful of John Oates shows, even attending his Songwriters Festival in Aspen, CO. (Where I was lucky to spend some alone time with Allen Toussaint!) Great show and I got to take some friends backstage, so it was fun!

You just got off of a plane & are standing in your dream location, where are you?
Scotland. I'm part Scottish and would love to visit someday.

Favorite memory-
Probably how happy I was to talk to one of my heroes on the phone - Robin Trower - and interview him in the early days of T-Bone's Prime Cuts. (May of 2011)

Bucket list goal-
To be happy.

Finish this sentence- "This time next year______"
I'll be walking and driving! (Had brain surgery and two strokes in 2018.)

You're hosting a dinner with 3 living artists & 3 that have died. Who will be there?

Osceola Iowa

Earliest musical memory-
My mom used to listen to The Carpenters and my dad listened to Bluegrass and Classical Music

The first album you bought-
With my own money? I believe it was Mötley Crüe-Theatre Of Pain

First concert -
Kiss/Slaughter and Faster Pussycat In 1990. I was 12. My dad took me and he had quadruple bypass heart surgery 2 years before. During the show, my dad could feel the bass drum in his chest and it freaked him out. I remember Faster Pussycat and the show but not much about Slaughter. My dad was the only man there dressed in Khakis and a Cardigan Sweater. Hahahaha!

Last concert attended -
ELECTRIC RADIO KINGS! At Counts Vamp’d in Vegas! That was a blast! Paul Christiana (lead singer) flew me out to introduce them on stage. Everyone was awesome! Paul Christiana is crazy! Love that man.

Favorite memory- Meeting so many people recently, and becoming friends with so many awesome people. Keith Ferrari, K.A.

Chris is the host of My Rock & Roll Heaven heard Sundays at 5pm EST 


Chris with Lee Aron

Where do you live-  
Markham, Ontario (part of the Greater Toronto Area)

Earliest musical memory-  listening to Beethoven’s 5th symphony with my dad’s giant headphones on (I have a pic somewhere!). I was probably 5 or so and I remember being absolutely blown away by how powerful the music was. My parents were big music lovers (especially classical) and we always had music playing in the house.   

The first album you bought-
First album I bought with my own money was Survivor’s Eye Of The Tiger. It was one of 13 records I got for a penny when I joined Columbia House for the 1st time in 1983, but it was the 1st one I circled on the flyer that came in the Saturday newspaper. Great thing is I still have the record. It’s pretty beat up, I played it non-stop! I remember having to get my mom to sign for me and that the grand total including shipping was $1.86.  

First concert - 
First concert was November 19th, 1988 in North Bay Ontario (where I grew up) and it was seeing my 1st favorite band, Honeymoon Suite! The venue was called the North Bay Arts Centre (it’s still there) and it’s about a 1,000 seat theatre with fantastic acoustics. I remember waiting in line before the box office opened (determined to get great seats), and ended up being one of the 1st people there! I managed to get 2nd row centre seats (4 in total) and rushed back to school afterwards to tell my buddies! Still have the ticket stub too.
Honeymoon Suite was fantastic, they were on the tour for their 3rd album Racing After Midnight and played a solid 2 hours. Great thing is that they are still together making new music and touring. I’ll be seeing them this summer J

Last concert attended- 
Billy Idol and Steve Stevens, March 25 2019 at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto. I have been a massive Billy Idol fan for years and this was my first time seeing him live! This show was simply Billy and Steve on stage, playing acoustic and electric versions of his classic songs, with Billy telling us the history behind his music and how the songs came to be. Almost like a VH1 Storytellers/MTV Unplugged type show. Seeing Billy and Steve in such a small venue (it was about a 1,000 seater) and hearing him tell the story of his life while singing these songs was such a memorable experience and one I won’t soon forget.

You just got off of a plane & are standing in your dream location, where are you? Hmmm…. Tough to narrow it down to just one location but right now I’d have to say the Maldives.

Favorite memory- 
Wow, I have so many of them! I’ll go with a recent one though, which would be meeting my favorite band Def Leppard last summer. One of the best days of my life!

Bucket list goal-  
Travelling through Europe for an entire summer going from one rock festival to another!

Finish this sentence- "This time next year I hopefully will have won the lottery and I’m retired sitting on a beach somewhere with the rock and roll cranked up! ;) "

You're hosting a dinner with 3 living artists & 3 that have died. Who will be there?
So many artists I would love to do this with!!! 3 living would be Joe Elliott, Nikki Sixx and Bryan Ferry. 3 that are no longer with us would be Freddie Mercury, Steve Clark and Bon Scott

My Dad, Mom, my brother Mike & myself went to see John Denver at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The year was 1978, I remember being incredibly excited because John was using the core of Elvis's touring band, (James Burton, Ronnie Tutt, Glen Hardin & Jerry Scheff).

Last concert attended- 
Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore at Skipper's Smokehouse in Tampa, Florida just a couple weeks ago. My Dad & I had terrific seats.

Where do you live?

Lancaster, SC

Earliest musical memory?

Being a little kid, listening to my sister’s hand-me-down 45s of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons and The Rivingtons, “Papa Oom Mow Mow,” and a couple of years later, being bitten by MonkeeMania. I wanted to BE a Monkee? Who wouldn’t? They were best friends who lived in a house on the beach and played music all day and were surrounded by beautiful girls…the American Dream on steroids.

Allman Brothers Band, Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, CA

Hmmm…somewhere tropical, with palm trees, a lack of insects and other critters that could sting me or eat me, the ocean, no tourists, no trust fund teens, just me, water, sand and sky.

Favorite memory?

My time as the DJ for the greatest honky tonk dive bar in the United States, The Maverick Saloon & Dance Hall in Pahrump, Nevada (2012-2013). The owner later gutted the place, every single thing inside the four walls, and sold it all off, turning it into a marijuana grow facility.

Bucket List Goal?

To record my own music.

Tommy Alaska Hosts The Vinyl Hour of Power each Friday at 8pm EST




Where do you live- 
Wilkes-Barre,Pa

Earliest musical memory-
Being in the basement with my father. He was always having friends over and playing albums and 45's from his collection. He was a dj before I was born.  I would sit on the steps and listen to them laugh and I would enjoy hearing the drums shake the plastic covers on the ceiling lights. I always enjoyed Friday and Saturday nights as a child for this reason. 

The first album you bought- 
The first album I bought with my own money was Neil Young's Harvest LP. I loved the oldies as a kid, I still do! The first album my dad bought for me was Appetite For Destruction. 2 days later he regretted that! I'll never forget that ride home in the big red van we used to have. 

First concert- 
My first concert was a Local band called Lifer.  Stalemate and Project 67 opened for them.

Last concert attended-
The Black Crowes @ The CYC in Scranton or was it Australian Pink Floyd? I forget. My memory gets a little hazy.

You just got off of a plane & are standing in your dream location, where are you? 
England.  I have a map in my hand to see where the Beatles grew up. 

Favorite memory- 
Driving around listening to mixed cd's with my friend Kim. She and I used to spend lots of crazy nights doing that. Good Times. 

Bucket list goal- 
Going to England.

Stacy hosts Stacy's Patio Tunes which airs each Friday at 9pm EST




Where do you live?
Edgewater, Florida

Earliest musical memory: 
Being a young kid and having music played all around the house. My father would play Rock ‘N Roll and my mother would play Motown and Doo-Wop so I had a very diverse musical upbringing that transitioned into my adulthood.

The first album you bought:
Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet album and from that moment on I was hooked!

First concert:
My first concert was Bon Jovi and Skid Row on February 10, 1989 at what once was the Orlando Arena in FL. I was 15 years old and can remember my mother dropping my friend, and I off at the front of the venue in our stone washed jeans, jet black t-shirts and our stiff as a board hair. I’ll never forget the feeling of awe when I got to my seat and the music started to play. I fell in love with concerts at that moment.

Last concert attended:
I saw Tesla in a small venue in Daytona Beach a few months ago. Although I have always been a fan, I had never seen them live and they were amazing!

You just got off of a plane & are standing in your dream location, where are you?
Believe it or not, New York City! I love that place and if I had enough money I would move into a penthouse there so that I could sit out on my balcony with a cocktail every night while gazing at stars and admiring the bright lights of the big city while listening to music.

Favorite memory
Meeting Michael Sweet from Stryper a few years back is easily one of my favorite memories!


Bucket list goal
To travel in an RV on I-10 from Jacksonville, FL to Santa Monica, CA.

Where do you live?

          Randy – Woodbridge, VA

          Troy - Tulsa, OK

Earliest musical memory:

          Randy – Music has been my life as along as I remember. My Dad was a major influence of my appreciation of music. I remember between the ages of 3 to 5 years old trying to sing along with his Blood, Sweat & Tears, 10CC, Gino Vannelli, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer albums.
          Troy - Church choir since I was a toddler, then picked up the tuba in 6th grade!

The first album you bought:
          Randy – The first album I bought with my own money was Journey “Captured.” I would play that double live album album over and over. Read every liner note I have no idea how many times.

First concert:

          Randy – My first concert was The Charlie Daniels Band with Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie) May 15, 1982 in Jacksonville, FL.  My first rock concert was Heart with Autograph October 27, 1985.

          Troy –  On a beach!

Favorite Memory:

          Randy – Of course the birth of my two sons will always rank first and foremost, but one that ranks right up there with it, has to be holding the U.S. Flag during Game Two of the 2001 World Series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Yankees in Phoenix, AZ.  With Ray Charles singing America the Beautiful, standing there in my Class A Army Uniform, still brings a smile to my face.

          Troy – Finishing my first half marathon. Or being backstage at the first Rocklahoma in 2007, that was cool too.

Cassidy- DailyBOOM Intern & host of Cass’s Chill Vibes


Where do you live?
Atlantic City, NJ

Earliest musical memory: 
Riding in the car with my father when I was young, he would play The Beach Boys, The Beatles, and Joe Cocker. The smooth yet upbeat tracks had a major resonance with me. They had a purpose to what they said, and some were just silly [at the time]. I recall our favorites together being ‘Little Deuce Coupe’ and ‘Blackbird’.

The first album you bought:
I am a 90s kid so my first album respectively was ‘Spiceworld’ by the Spice Girls in 1997. They were fun to dance to and they got me into girl groups. However, my favorite song from the 90s now is ‘Linger’ by the Cranberries.

First concert: 
Kenny Chesney: No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems Tour. He had come to the Delaware State Fair that year and had won entertainer of the year at the CMAs, which I used to watch religiously along with CMT. It was everything I had hoped and a few years later, I saw him again with Uncle Kracker for the When the Sun Goes Down Tour. 

Last concert attended:
Panteón Rococó - I was in Guerrero, Mexico and they were playing at a fair and it was phenomenal. Multiple mosh pits and a lot of energy. 

You just got off a plane & are standing in your dream location, where are you? 
On a mountainside in New Zealand. I want to hike to a beautiful location on a cliff and take phenomenal photos. Then set up my easel and paint what I see.

Favorite memory:
I was driving with my fiancé and we were singing tracks from The Greatest Showman. I was singing in a low register and she told me to stop. I replied, “That’s just my voice. I’m a mezzo-alto!” This made her die of laughter. Makes me smile every time I think about it.

Bucket list goal:
Visit every country in Europe.

Dinner with three artists who are living, and three who have died?

Dead: 
Bob Marley
John Lennon
Amy Winehouse

Alive:
Miley Cyrus
