We’ve had the pleasure of welcoming many special guests to the ‘out of control’ room here on the K-EARTH 101 Morning Show over the past year. As we get ready for Christmas break and the coming new year, we’re taking a look back at what an amazing, crazy year 2012 has been by re-visiting some of the most memorable guest interviews of the year!
In no particular order, here are the top 10 K-EARTH 101 Morning Show Interviews of 2012:
Beach Boys – With five decades of hit-making music, we had to break up our incredible interview with the fully reunited Beach Boys into four parts. Gearing up for their 50th Anniversary tour, the Beach Boys sat down with Gary & Lisa to look back through their 50 influential years of music and share stories you’ve never heard from their career. Listen to all four parts here.
Joe Walsh – The Analog Man himself stopped by in studio to talk about his brand new album and career with L.A.’s own The Eagles, and boy, does he have some stories to tell.
