Mike Portnoy on USED BIN RADIO tonight! (4/3/12)

5/9/12 6:03AM
Here's the Podcast to stream/dl
The interview starts around the 36 minute mark.

My call is in the last 25 minutes or so of the show.

4/3/12 6:00PM 

7-10PM Pacific Time

the interview was done 1-week ago, as they have been forced to tape their shows and have them stream the week after, for the last 6 months or so.

This interview has been a long time a coming, for various reasons. Although tracing back my 1st exposure to UBR, a show/idea/format for something I personally always wanted to find or even do myself. But it was that James LaBrie interview not too long after Mike left Dream Theater, that brought them to my attention.

Much has been said, and the stuff that may have stood out then and since, hopefully is water under the bridge, and Mike is the PERFECT guest for Brad and Joe. So this interview, which I guess may be as long as 100 minutes long or so, should be rather enticing. I have a feeling, it won't be your avg Mike Portnoy interview, nor probably so similar to every interview they do on UBR.

Anyway, of course I did call in during the last hour, albeit brief. But that's secondary of course, other than the fact, if enough people hear this, it may be a little scary how many new listeners this show may have.

It should be PODCASTED, but when, who knows as the guys along with Rich from Pure Rock Radio have been a little backed up with getting them up the last few months. Although I have a feeling, this one may help prioritize their availability a bit more.
