14:36 minutes Bill Champlin talks to Iris about his acoustic shows at Jimmy Mak's

As a huge Sons of Champlin fan, and just an overall fan of THE MAN, Bill Champlin, the upcoming two shows at Jimmy Mak's on October 13th will be legendary. One of the best storytellers I've ever met, Bill will be doing a singer/songwriter/storyteller solo show not to be missed. He talks about how the idea got started, the other shows of this kind that he has done, and other projects that are always in that very fertile creative brain of his. Enjoy the ride....Iris

15:19 minutes Iris catches up with Portland's own Duffy Bishop!

Duffy Bishop is a local treasure. She has shared a stage with the likes of Ruth Brown, John Lee Hooker, Lou Rawls, Bonnie Raitt, Shemekia Copeland, Bobby Blue Bland, Bill Champlin, and Bo Diddley who said "She's dangerous" when he played the Crystal Ballroom on his 75th birthday. Duffy and husband Chris Carlson are part of the rich musical landscape of Portland, and they have played KGON events through the years. Again, I'm coming into this as a fan, and I hope you enjoy catching up with her as much as I did!
Cheers,
Iris

12:49 minutes Bill Champlin tells Iris about the new line up in The Sons of Champlin!

Being a huge Sons of Champlin fan, I always love getting the chance to talk to the namesake of the band. Bill Champlin is funny, cool, and one of my favorite musicians ever. With the Sons coming to the Aladdin again, he also has a true SON of Champlin in the band now, and wait until you hear him talk about his son, Will. His wife, Tamara, is also in the band, and when these three sing together, angels will be weeping from heaven because it's so good! Enjoy the chat. Oh, and go to the show!!!
