Hey! Thanks a bunch for what you're doing for Rochester and the Jazz Fest! I found your blog looking for something completely different, but I'm really glad I did.

Yes, doing interviews is an arduous task, no doubt about it. I have found, in the interviews that I've done, that the secret is coming up with a few slightly-odd questions to ask as the first question. The idea is to pull people out of their media comfort zone so you can just ask questions naturally after that and let them talk. It's much harder with politicians, in those few that I've interviewed, but fortunately with musicians, they're dying to just talk about what they think about music!

Good luck with this blog! Drop me a line if you want, I'd love to talk about how we can bring our two websites into orbit.

Talk about lame; I think my "spike" of unique visitors (if I'm to believe Google analytics) was 8 to you 1,200. Also lame, how little I managed to see compared to you and others. I'll have to have a much better strategy next year if I'm going to see/hear more and at least double my "spike" in readership! Greg, what I liked about your blog during the fest was hearing about the many things that you saw which were diffrent than what I saw. That was cool. You did the same great job with covering the Jazz Fest that you do covering jazz in Rochester every day! Keep up the great work.

Hey, I forgot to list using a conference or ball room at the Crowne Plaze instead of the bar for the Jam Session. Maybe it will get some love if people see it here.

See you tomorrow at Bertoncini.
