4 years ago this week, I took to the mic for the very first time as host of Breakfast with The Smiths: The World of Morrissey. When they asked me to do it, I thought, “great, this’ll be fun and they’ll probably pull the plug after 6 months. 4 years later, still here.
I owe a great bit of thanks to my friend and mentor Joe Escalante for putting the idea in their heads. Thanks go out to our fearless leader Tedd Roman for keeping Indie 1031 great and airing the show 3 times a week. And these people who have shown me kindness and generosity with their time at one time or another — Chuck P., Nick Handman, Jose Galvan, Penelope Wakeman, Stuart Akin, and Stephanie LeBow.
Last but not least, a big thanks to you Breakfast Champions for growing in numbers week after week, re-tweeting to your friends, “like”-ing the show on Indie’s Facebook page. Every little bit has helped to make this show a real blast to do for you each and every week.
I’ll keep at it as long as my keypass still lets me into the building. Much love to all of you and, of course, to Morrissey for his songs that I’ll never get tired of.
