Patti Zlaket Back On "Locals Live" Tuesday

Patti ZlaketI don't know if Joan Rubin stole my address book or what, but every Tuesday she seems to be choosing mostly singers I know to appear on her "Locals Live" radio show! Last week it was Eve Selis and Marc Intravaia, and this Tuesday from 10 a.m.-noon it will be my friend Patti Zlaket, who is making a return visit to the program. I shot this picture of Patti during Bridget Brigitte's Memorial Day showcase.

PATTI ZLAKET: BlissI first met singer/songwriter Patti Zlaket on a Friday night in 2002, when she played an early show at Humphrey's Backstage Lounge that preceded a performance by The Heroes. My friend Doug Foxworthy knew I was going there to see them, so he suggested I arrive early and catch Patti's show too. I did, and I have seen her quite a few times since then. She is a great songwriter and singer, and a very entertaining and funny performer! Patti has a CD available called "Bliss." You can click on the picture of it to hear sample clips from her songs.

As for Joan Rubin, I hadn't heard of her or the "Locals Live" radio show on KKSM-AM 1320 until June, when another singer I know named Randi Driscoll was a guest on the program. I listened and learned a lot of new info about Randi and her music, thanks to Joan's excellent questions. The next night I went to Redfield's to see Randi perform a few songs during the Mighty 1090's Padres Postgame Show. Randi pointed out Joan sitting in the audience, so I introduced myself to her later. She gave me a warm hug and thanked me for doing something to help local musicians!

Here's an e-mail I received yesterday from Patti Z:

I was invited back to KKSM to co-host another 2 hours of music for "Locals Live" this Tuesday, August 3rd, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.!

If you missed it the last time, never fear! There are now MORE ways to tune in, whether you're in North County or North Dakota!

KKSM can be heard three ways:
1320-AM
Cox Digital Cable Channel 958

I'll be playing some of my favorite tunes from some of my favorite artists (it's quite an eclectic mix, I promise!) and will perform a few of my own songs live, too! Check it out... it was a blast the last time!

Well, I had a blast... hope you did, too. :-)
