I find that we are more relaxed when doing it live, CRUMBS Café that is. In the studio this week, broadcasted live, is the one, the only, Super 400 as we kick off Season 3 with a bang. This was the second time CRUMBS Café has gone live and once again it was a huge success with a whopping 10 online listeners. All of the listeners were from the Capital Region with the exception of one who was from the Netherlands. How cool is that? The last time we broadcasted live with Sean Rowe we had a listener from Wichita. But back to the Band.
Super 400 has been on the local scene for over 12 years. These Troy natives have long since paid their dues. After four CDs and a near world tour, Super 400 is able to enjoy the success and share their success. During their 'visit' back to the Capital region they played at Tess's Lark Tavern but with a twist. The tickets were sold at a discounted rate if patrons brought a non-perishable food to the show. This has become a reoccurring theme for the band and one that other bands should follow. They enjoy giving back to the community were ever they go and especially in this area.
Again the live interview went quite well. I did have plenty of help from behind the mic via Bill Bucher and Crista Lea. They were able to jump in when I was rustling papers in search of a quality question. It was also great to interact with the listeners and have them run the show a bit. There were emails coming in all throughout the show. The topics of the questions ranged from a possible new record to roller skating.
