10:03 minutes Ray Davies of The Kinks talks to Iris Harrison

The Kinks are one of those bands that lead the way in the British Invasion. They have influenced several different genres of rock 'n roll, including punk, hard rock, and grunge. Ray Davies has put his experiences into a book titled "Americana: The Kinks, the Riff, the Road: The Story" and begins from his hospital bed in New Orleans after being shot. We talk about the New Orleans incident, the Schoolboys in Disgrace tour, how he feels about America, and how he feels about Van Halen's cover of "You Really Got Me." I hope you enjoy the interview. ~Iris

15:53 minutes Marv and Rindy Ross of Quarterflash talk to Iris about their new album "Love is a Road."

The first time I saw Seafood Mama at Frankensteins, I remember thinking that Rindy Ross was the coolest rock chick ever! She not only had that amazing voice, but she also played SAX! Marv and Rindy Ross took the seeds of that band to a record deal, changed the name to Quarterflash, released a debut album that went platinum, and are part of Portland music royalty! Not only surviving and thriving in the music business, they are still together, and being in this business and still married is a very big deal. Believe me, I know.

9:34 minutes Art Alexakis talks to Iris about Everclear being inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.

When Art Alexakis moved to Portland and formed his band, Everclear, it was the early 90's and KGON was still just a rock station, not Classic Rock, and we played their music. I asked Art about his musical influences, how he feels about the induction into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, and how he would react to being played on a Classic Rock station. He's charming, smart, and it was a wonderful conversation! Enjoy~ Iris
