10:47 minutes Joe Walsh talks to Iris Harrison

Joe Walsh is not only one of my favorite rock stars, but a hero for going public with his addictions and recovery. He has always been so honest in his work, solo or with the James Gang and The Eagles. We talk about all of this as the single Analog Man hits the airwaves on KGON, and wait for the whole album's release on June 5th. I also beg him to come to Oregon. Hope it works.

16:26 minutes Greg Kihn talks to Iris Harrison about his new release.

In 1999, I was asked to join a group of radio folks on a once in a lifetime journey to London to broadcast at Abbey Road Studios, and much to my surprise, Greg Kihn, the rock star, was now in radio doing a morning show and was also on the trip. We had amazing days going to the studios and interviewing celebrities, and also had a chance to just hang out and enjoy London. Greg is funny, talented, and very cool to be around. He's still working for KFOX in the Bay Area, and we now work for the same company, Entercom.

27:04 minutes Iris talks to Dr. Will Winter, lead guitar player for N.E.D. No Evidence of Disease

Have I told you that my doctor is a rocker? It wasn't on my list of requirements for an oncologist, but it's pretty cool that it worked out that way. He is in this incredible band of six gynecological oncologists who make up N.E.D. No Evidence of Disease. They are not only busy with their world of treating patients but they are raising awareness of gynecologic cancer by being in this band. Enjoy the interview, and come see the band at the Aladdin Theater on Saturday, March 10th. Find links to buy tickets on the KGON concert page.
