Pete Fornatale On FM Odyssey Radio - First Song He Played On Mixed Bag AND Clip From His Interview With Harry Chapin!!
Growing up listening to him and then having him as a close friend for the last years of his life gave us a lot of time to play both on & off the radio!
He flew down to Florida for my birthday one year and of course we had to do my 'FM Odyssey' show! My co-producer, Paul Porzio flew in from DC to join us as well.
In this clip, Pete shares the dilemma he had of choosing a theme song for the first 'Mixed Bag 'Radio program & how Harry Chapin's divine intervention solved the problem.
Plus, a segment from an interview Pete did with Harry that was found after 25 years!.
Enjoy - Fred
