Link Wray Fan Group on Facebook. Rex: I hope you don't mind my plugging this FB group. Thanks for playing Run Chicken Run.
Avatar 1:27pm Mailman Tom:

Rex, where in the archives can I find the interview that you did with Ike Turner?
Avatar 1:28pm CTEmpress:

Hayden Thompson oh yeah
  1:46pm nvail:

Oh my, how I loooves that chicken!!!
Avatar 1:56pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Thanks for the plugola, oh Great One. Party update: There Will Be Cookies. Also, for the sake of accuracy we must report that, sadly, the Blarney Cove closed forever not long ago. It will of course live on in our memories.
  2:25pm Elias:

This is the greatest interview that has ever existed. Where else could one discover the link between Danny Stiles and the origins of the artificial heart and an appliance store in Metuchen.
Avatar 2:30pm Reeshard:

Ordinarily I'm not crazy about interviews disrupting the clubhouse vibe of the broadcast, but this is genuinely amazing. Ralph Nielsen, what a cool guy! And, yes, "Scream" is probably the best rock and roll record ever made. Thanks, Rex.

@mailman tom:

looks like rex aired the ike turner interview
on dec.15,2007.
scroll down on his archives page...
  2:37pm Elias:

Gadzooks! Twelve live performances only. That's like witnessing Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game. Those who were there are among a true elite.
Avatar 2:39pm Mailman Tom:

Thanks, tonyb !
Avatar 2:39pm Richie:

Ralph Nielsen made my Day. No...week....month? This is the highlight of the year!!!!!!
Avatar 2:45pm Nutley Sam:

I love him in Cheap Trick.
  2:48pm Martin:

Awesome interview, Rex! Glad this all came together. Thanks for the shout out! You're the best.
Avatar 2:53pm CTEmpress:

Great interview! Thanks for that slice of history. AND THE ELECTRAS!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Guido (Cologne):

Fools Paradise is a paradise indeed!
But this show with the interview is something more than special.
  7:38pm Switch:

WOW!! Thanks for interviewing one of my heroes: Ralph Nielsen! In the interview he reveals that he wrote "Little Demon" for his wife! The screaming on "Scream" on the other hand sounds like the insane torturing of a woman! Definitely the wildest rock and roll record ever made!!!!!
