11:59 minutes Iris talks to Dan Schauffler about being inducted as a "side player" into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame on October 6, 2012.

Danny Schauffler is not only the gifted sax player for the Crazy 8's, but a great session guy for many other players. The 8's went into the OMHOF a few years ago and have played at several of the induction concerts, so this is his second time being recognized for his musical contributions that keep our city rockin'. He is also a dear friend, who teaches music and makes an impact daily on young musicians. We talk about his career, teaching, and getting the honor once again. I adore this man and his family. ~ Iris

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

14:49 minutes Iris talks to Ronnie Montrose while he's driving from Ashland to Eugene! 9/15/11

I first heard the Montrose album while at a kegger in college and will never forget the impact it had on me at the time. Here we are decades later still rockin' out to songs like "Bad Motorscooter" "Rock Candy" and "Rock the Nation." Ronnie also worked with Northwest band Rail in the 80's, worked with everyone from Van Morrison and Edgar Winter to Boz Scaggs and more. He's a wonderful interview, smart and kind. Plus MONTROSE ROCKS!! Enjoy the chat.
