And We Begin…

February 19, 2010

Another ON THE SCENE episode behind us, the next is coming together quickly!

First, thanks to those of you who’ve emailed me about  last weekend’s show…there are certainly some Dave Koz fans out there who I heard from and a number of people wrote to say they are happy to see Ben Vereen back on stage, too.  Both men were great interviews and generous with their time.

And I always love when every person I hear from names a different segment as their favorite, which happened this time. That means the show offered something for everyone, a true variety that many viewers could relate to. I’ve learned that if everybody likes the same thing, the rest of the show might be falling flat!

Now, it’s the interesting challenge of putting together the next one, which really always begins before the previous show airs. About three weeks ago we spent a fascinating afternoon in a rehearsal studio in Nyack, New York with the guitarist, Al Di Meola. It’s a true inside and candid look at how he and his band make music .  We have several other artists confirmed and I’ll be talking more about those interviews in a couple weeks.

This is one of the most exciting times for me because you see the possibilities, all the things “the next show” can bring.
