Nation’s Singers Rudely Telling DJs How To Do Job (Season 1: Ep 9 on IFC)

That’s what I’m talking about

If the past events I’ve worked with acts like Smash Mouth and Live 105 are any source of measurement, then Brooke Alvarez could be on to something. It’s about time someone stood up to these pushy artists and reminded them that we have the power to not only stop the song, but change it too.

Okay, that’s not fair. Working with the Bay Area’s Smash Mouth at the release of Astro Lounge was a great honor. And thankfully, groups like The Maids of Honor probably don’t have a dance hit to save their lives.

And yes, this post is all in good fun.  I loved working with Smash Mouth, and if you’ve ever seen Greg and Lex wail in Maids…  Well, that’s a sight you’ll never get out of your mind!
