So yesterday I went to an open mic with Skitzic. Played 3 songs and was done. Well, afterwards the host came up to me and asked how many songs I can play. I said between 6 and 8 comfortable. I thought he wanted me for a gig or something. Then he busts out and says that he is a radio dj and a spot opened up in his show for today. Soooo he asked me If i wanted to play.. couldn't turn it down, now I just gotta figure out if I can fill a freaking hour.

Anyway, if you'd like to listen, at 5pm est head to http://www.thephilstahlshow.com/wxlv.html and click on the yellow button for the live stream.

I'll be repping UU on it so listen for me!!!! ahhhhhhhhhhhh

In my life? (If you don't sing)

*coughcough*Dylan*coughcough*

Dude didn't even really sing, just speak the words to the beat. :D

And I would pay money to hear Colin sing Hey Soul Sister...a lot of money.

Great Colmes, I should be able to tune in!

I want to hear it too. I will not be able to listen live though. They might be able to give you a CD of the show before you leave. If not, you might consider having a small recorder in the room, if it is OK with them. Some of the iPods have a mic, and voice memo feature.

Yeah it was realllly laid back. Phil is a really whatever happens happens kinda guy. I was actually panicking because I could not hear him at all and I was worried I wouldnt fill the hour if I had to play the whole time. But we had a good convo, he was really interested in the uke and the culture and I made sure to do my best to educate him as much. And plug uu 50 times :):)

you carried yourself really well man, like you said the convo came across as very natural...the UU plugs were fantastic...liked your playing too, tore up Gently Weeps and especially liked the last tune as well...we all were pretty excited as you can tell from the posts!!!

We have a guy in Oz a lot like Phil...his name is Lucky Oceans and he is soooo laid back it isn't funny...he runs a brilliant show called "the Daily Planet" where he plays samples of new music from all round the world...you name it...gypsy, folk, blues, jazz, tribal beats, spanish, african stuff etc etc..great show...Google: ABC Radio National / Daily Planet and you can listen online...

cheers Col

Colin, just watched your posts of the radio show on your YT channel. This was really exciting and you did fantastic job! Great chat and Gently Weeps...wow! You did UU so proud! You can add your own name to the list that you mentioned, the list of those spreading the ukulele love. Thanks so much for posting on YT for those of us who weren't able to tune in yesterday. It was great fun for us to be able to hear you on the show!

Greatful to UU postings and the videos - brought it all together. Thanks to all.

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone.This truly would NOT have happened if it wasn't for UU and you guys. Seriously meant a lot to me to see everyone typing a play by play while listening.. sooooooo cool.

Seriously, reallly cool you guys tuned in!
