Sunday was a special treat.
My boyfriend, in addition to being a wine salesman, has his own radio show called Tasting Notes where he explores the connection between wine and music. There is one. No, really. More on that another time.
So, this nice leverage of having a radio show came in handy last week as he noticed that a favorite indie band was returning to the metro area near the day of his radio show. We met the Kopecky Family Band, briefly, at a previous show last month and a showcase at SXSW a couple of years ago. He tweeted them and they tweeted back. The stars aligned and he was able to have him tape a segment for his Monday night show. As a bonus, they were able to record a VDub session, too!
Forgive me, I think I’ve recently fallen for animated gifs….about ten years after everyone else.
After they rode around and did their thing, we headed into the studio to drink wine while Clayton interviews and Kopecky performed.
They were simply just the nicest people and so gracious and genuine. As soon as I can get a link to the episode I will update this post. After the taping we walked to share lunch and stories. I think I was so hungry that I forgot I had a camera with me.
