Hell’s Kitchen Radio #454: Kate and Eric Visit the New Studio

Saturday, November 6, 10am

Listen into all my shows here!

After careful consideration, and a close listen to my pre-Halloween show, I came to the decision that it just plane blew. Therefore, I have made the executive decision for a do-over. The first hour on Monday night was some sweet spooky tunes to keep the holiday spirit going. Pun intended. 

To make this night even better, the second hour features not one, but two remarkable performers: Kate Vargas and Eric McFadden. If you have tuned into my show over the years, then you know Eric is a longtime friend, and always a great interview, always with fun stories to share. Tonight Eric is joined by singer/songwriter Kate Vargas. I’ve been playing the hell out of her recent release, Rumpumpo. The two of them have been hosting their weekly “From The Red Couch” shows since COVID began, and each week is a real treat.

Tonight we talk about how COVID has been treating them, writing and performing, and what stories mean to them. I really love interviewing songwriters; they always dig deeper to tell the more meaningful story. I think you’ll agree.

Eric and Kate will be performing at Dark Cabaret at the Great Star Theater in Chinatown the last two

weekends in November. I have attended many times and can attest to how amazing this show is. Go to the site and poke around. Seriously, go see this show!!!

Kate is performing later in November at Amado’s in the Mission, Sunday, November 21st.

OK, that’s enough. Take a look at the playlist below, click the link at the top to stream or download this show, by tickets to the live shows, and get a damn life already.
