Cldye's dad ,

Good interviewer

Mitch does good interviews. And he wins bonus points for his lack of obnoxious demeanor which seems to be problemmatic for other rock podcasters.

Califas Tejano ,

Rockin w/Mitch Lafon is a good day

Welcome back Donnie Vie to the show. This was a fun interview because Donnie seems very content, happy and positive about himself today and the future. The music world needs more Donnie Vie music and he has certainly written enough songs to describe him as a genius.

John E Light ,

Fake

Mitch is a hypocritical, two faced bald midget.
