Interning at KISW, Cathy Faulkner was barely old enough to buy cigarettes. The day Nirvana released “Nevermind”, she became KISW Music Director. As Pearl Jam recorded “Ten”, Cathy had fallen asleep on the studio couch.
Bob Spike and Joe spend over an hour with Cathy on the “behind the scenes” curation of musicians, bands, on-air talent and how the ‘Seattle Sound’ came to be. A great conversation!
Spike is tearing it up these days on KIRO Mid Days with his sparring partner (and fast rising talent) Jack Stine.
And Downtown Joe is mentoring the Broadcasters of tomorrow at KMIH.
And none of this could have happened at all for any of us without YOU. Thanks for listening for all those years.
