Glad you think so, Rhett. I will be airing an interview with Peter Case this coming Friday.

"Airing," as in it's already been taped? Well, then you won't be able to pass along the news that Rhett Lawrence was ever-so-slightly disappointed in his new album! smiling smiley

On my last record store visit, I saw he had a new record out, and even though I don't think I'd bought anything new from him in 20 years, I felt drawn to buy it without having heard anything from or about it. The songs are good-to-great, of course, but he seems to largely stick to piano these days, so it just wasn't what I expected. He's either coming through here soon or just has, but I won't make the show. I'll be interested to hear if you see him in Seattle/Everett, Delvin, which is presumably the impetus for the interview.

The piano focus was specific to the new album.

I'm interviewing him this afternoon. And all due respect to you, Rhett, but I think I'll just glide past that opinion. Sorry, but I just don't see how it'll help overall.

And yes, he's playing Seattle on Friday the 9th (and Portland on Wednesday the 7th, at The Old Church, just so's ya know). I'll be able to collect on two free tickets to the show, in exchange for the interview. But I'm booked next Friday, so I'll be using them as a giveaway on the air.

And to be clear, I was just joking about expressing any kind of disappointment to him. The dude's history gives him the discretion to do whatever the hell he wants, regardless of what Rhett Lawrence happens to be expecting!

And glad to hear the piano focus is not his exclusive direction these days. It would make it more likely that I'd go see him next week, but alas, I'm not able to go anyway.
