I was interviewed by phone earlier today by Barnaby of the “Barnaby and Friends” morning radio show on WLHT 95.7 in Grand Rapids. Barnaby has been an Adam Lambert fan from early on and saw my article on Grand Rapids. He emailed me, I called him, and it went down in the same whirlwind of excitement that has defined the past week for me. I think I babbled and rambled on, but the interview wasn’t live, so hopefully he can edit the interview and make me sound halfway articulate. Geez, do a radio interview and you will SO appreciate even more the calm and intelligent way that Adam handles himself when he’s interviewed!
So what did we talk about? Glambs, of course, though I had to correct Barnaby when he called us Glamberts. I talked about the international aspect of the club, mentioned some of the countries our fans hail from, and thankfully remembered to give our website address. I talked briefly about my four concerts, and then we quickly moved on to Adam himself. Why do you all love Adam? (Let me count the ways…) How do you recognize an Adam fan? (Black and blue and glitter an glam!) What can you tell us about Adam that people might not know? (I mentioned Adam’s stint as a cruise ship performer and mentioned he was in New York’s harbor days before 9-11) What causes are dear to his heart? (I talked about DonorsChoose and how people could donate.) And, of course, we talked about Grand Rapids. Barnaby asked why he thought so many fans from all over were converging for this particular concert. Boy, I didn’t have a good answer for that one!
The interview should air on tomorrow morning’s show (Friday, Sept. 4th). If any of you live in Grand Rapids, please check it out and comment below. Did I sound sane? Did I give the right answers? Or did I babble like a drooling lunatic? The more I think about it, the more I feel like I could have been a whole lot more calm and cool and collected, like Adam always is. How does he do it??????
By the way, Barnaby told me that he’d have a booth set up outside the arena between 4 and 6pm, and that people were welcome to stop by to register for a chance to win a meet and greet pass. Here’s the link to the Barnaby and Friends show.
