We talked about his upcoming appearances around the Pacific Northwest, his music background growing up in the blues/folk scene in L.A., and even about tuning guitars and the different types of woods used in making the instruments. But because we were a bit carried away with our show of Movie Soundtracks and TV Themes, we could only air part of the interview. This is the whole discussion with music inserts.And, Dorian said he'd try and come by the studio for our Labor Day Cookout show on Sept.5th.
