This week we celebrated our 9th birthday/anniversary as a radio program. Over the years we’ve had the honor of hosting some incredible artists in our studio and also on phone interviews. The conversations have been great, as well as the exclusive performances. This week’s radio program features a collection of our favorite interview sessions over the past few years, including a session recorded two months ago that we have not aired yet with Lindsay Katt. You can hear more of these sessions on our PODCAST page, or you can see some video from a few of the sessions HERE.
Thanks for being a part of our show for nearly a decade. Also in our program we hear from listeners who tell us why they love our show and what artists we introduced them to that they are now fans of.

Welcome back to my table here on TA, I’m glad to have you for this very special presentation this time. This week we marked our 9th birthday as a radio program and this hour we’re celebrating my looking at these past several years and some of the great conversations, interviews, and exclusive sessions we’ve had with new and emerging artists. Also this hour we’re going to hear from you. Yes, listeners have been calling in telling me their favorite artists that they were introduced to and we’ll hear from fans of the show and the artists they love. You are a huge part of this show and have been for the past 9 years. This celebration is a celebration of not just great music and the opportunity to showcase it to you, but a way to say thanks for listening and being with me for so long. I appreciate you.
Earlier this year I had the privilege to sit down with a very talented songwriter who has recently released her self-titled album. She hails from New York but began her career in Nashville. She was the first person to ever tell me that D Grant was “gangsta” and that endeared her to me. These are 2 exclusive songs she performed with us here on TA.
