Boom Radio Show Archives


Cate:
Where do you live- 
Ocean City, 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-
Foreigner in a little room in a big casino outside of DC a few weeks ago. Sold out show and as always, they blew the roof off. Totally reminded me why I love them most of all.

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 Boom Radio will be on multiple platforms & serve as a template for how to merge terrestrial radio with the digital age. Oh and my first book (now under contract) will be released!"

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.

Earliest musical memory-

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.

On stage introducing a band somewhere.
Favorite memory- Meeting so many people recently, and becoming friends with so many awesome people. Keith Ferrari, K.A. Of Lypswitch, Paul Christiana, Angel Cruz, Angela Hamilton, Ashley McDermott, Johnny Italia, Justin Kimmel,Ace Von Johnson, Chris Steven...I could go on. Getting to know these people is making great memories.

Chris is the host of My Rock & Roll Heaven heard Sundays 5-7pm EST on Boom Radio!

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

Listening to music on the car radio with my parents. Their favorite radio stations were set with push buttons to take you right to the station.

The first album you bought -

First concert- 
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. We've seen Alvin seven or eight times over the years and we saw Gilmore with The Flatlanders, (Butch Hancock & Joe Ely), but we've never seen the two of them together. It was an incredibly good show start to finish.
