Chris Poh interviews Alex for Sit Downs and Sessions Podcast

If you’ve ever wanted to go a little further behind my music, this podcast is for you. Chris Poh is a great interviewer who notices the nuances and is always ready with thoughtful commentary and witty banter, no matter what the topic.  We discuss my music career from past to present, including tour stories, songwriting influences, thoughts on the music business, and more. Plus, I perform four songs from across the years, and even debut a brand new tune. I hope you listen and enjoy!

Alex takes over the DJ booth on WDVR – now posted!

On Tuesday, April 16, I took over the DJ booth at WDVR 89.7 FM during Bill Kalke’s wonderful show, Hotel California. I had a wonderful time spinning tracks from my influences, and some of the great musicians around the country I’ve performed and collaborated with.  I also played a few tunes live, new and old, and featured a brand new song from Hot4Robot, my art rock project with Dave Cahill, Evan Straley and Andy Janowiak.

The entire show is posted here.

Below is the playlist.  One correction:  I announced that the Jay Unger and Molly Mason song I played was “Ashokan Farewell”.  That was incorrect.  It was actually “The Lovers’ Waltz”.
