With Neil Diamond coming to the Q this Sunday (7/1), I thought I'd re-post this interview I did with him back in December when we announced the show.
He's probably the biggest music star I've ever interviewed, and among one of the nicest. Showed no ego to me whatsoever. If anything he's too modest. He had just made his engagement public (he's since gotten married) and seemed very happy and content.
Here's the FULL interview including some stuff that didn't get on the air. Shoot me a note or comment and have fun at the show Sunday!!!
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999, and met Britney Spears back when she wasn't making people gag.
After watching my former company screw up the Jammin' Oldies thing for a couple of years, I came to Majic in 2001, the best decision I ever made!
