05/09/05 MB '05 Tour: Day 15: Day Off (Radio Event), Philly
...post show report: Today went pretty smoothly. The band was shuttled over to Indre Studios, where they were set up in a semicircle of old chairs and couches with Jim McGuinn. The interview and the fan call-ins were recorded, including breaks for the commercials and the songs to be played from Make Believe. They only had to re-do one or two moments where there was a tech error, for the most part everything was fine the first time around. It was a really comfortable experience, a testimony to the bands long time relationship with Jim and the other guys involved in putting on the show, and to the bands general level of confidence around the imminent release of Make Believe.
