Excellent

Excellent podcasts…Definitely not the same fluff as some of the other podcasts good questions Mitch is a great interview .. Well Done

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.

Are there Time constraints???

Love interviewing style but always mentioning “we are running out of time” is a bit strange as it is a podcast. Would love to hear a little more depth in the subject matter rather than “terrestrial” radio short style interviews about the new stuff coming up … keep em for an hour and let em spill the secrets …can’t get people to open up in short 20 min interviews …..just my 2 cents
