So, many people are still talking about Burton Cummings being on CHAB radio earlier this week. It was pretty cool to have such a big star on the show.
I've been asked a number of times now if Burton is the "most famous person you've ever interviewed?" I'm not sure. He might be. He was certainly one of the best interviews of my radio career. He was engaging, he was in a zone - he was very pleasant to talk to.
The question got me thinking about all the famous entertainers I've talked to over the years. Not all of them put in an effort like Burton did. I won't bother telling you about them. Why would I.
I do remember some of the wonderful conversations I've had. The late Bobby Curtola was one of the best. He loved to entertain whether he was singing and dancing or just visiting on the radio.
Susan Jacks was good. Tom Cochrane was outstanding. George Thorogood and Edgar Winter were pretty cool too!
Come to think of it, I live a charmed life, don't I?
