Since the cat is somewhat out of the bag I might as well make it official. My friend April Lindfors and I will begin hosting an online radio program soon. The show, which shall remain nameless for now, will focus on emerging artists from different genres including fine arts, music and writing and acting and will include more successful artists from time to time to talk about their experience and to offer advice to the newer, emerging guests. We will start programming details and have an official launch date in the near future.
A few weeks ago we were discussing some ideal guests and Michael Damian's name came up. He is best know for his role as Danny Romalotti on The Young and The Restless and as a Broadway actor, renowned for his performance in Andrew Lloyd Weber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat.
Last night April and I were in our online story meeting and I was looking through blogtalk radio's programs for some format ideas when I spotted on air, Michael Damian being interviewed by Jasam Radio! How serendiptious! I immediately popped into their chat room and shortly thereafter was invited to call in. Me, being impetuous by nature, immediately did.
Now I knew that Michael had forayed into directing and that he was the director for Flicka 2(I'd been doing some research after April and I first spoke about him). The show he was on was promoting the release of that film, a family feature, due for release on May 4th.
I spoke to Michael about the Olympics(we did a great job in Canada!), his filming(in Langley B.C) and his time as a touring rock star back in the eighties(Remember Rock On?)
It was a great conversation and a great lesson in serendipity. You can hear the entire show by clicking the play button. My conversation with him occurs somewhere around minute 32:49 but the entire program is worth a listen.
Flicka 2 comes out on DVD and will be available at Walmart on May 4, 2010. You can watch the trailer HERE or at www. michaeldamian.com.
