Flattered by the BBC

Well I was most pleased (or chuffed as we would say in England) today as BBC Radio presenter Russell Davies and his producer flew to San Francisco to interview me for an upcoming BBC documentary series on a cappella. We have been helping them meet up with some a cappella artists while they are in the US this week to gather material for the programs. They were not originally planning to come to San Francisco but called yesterday to say they would like to fly up here for the afternoon from Los Angeles to talk with me in person, which of course I found to be very flattering. We had a most enjoyable visit and, if I may humbly say, they seemed to find me most informative. I have after all been living and breathing (but not singing!) a cappella for well over a decade now and having done dozens of interviews over the years I try to give the media the kind of information I hope they will find helpful. I also gave buddy Joe Jennings, director of Chanticleer, a call and he joined us for dinner and also taped an interview. Lots of fun and I will certainly let you know when the series airs.
