SEPTEMBER 23, 2008 CHRIS MOYLES EXTENDING MY 15 MINTES OF FAME IN THE UK BY A FEW MORE SECONDS Or should I say "resurrecting my long-dead career"? If I made any money off of mashups I would totally have to pay Chris Moyles a hefty percentage of it these days, as the venerable BBC Radio 1 morning host is singlehandedly keeping me in the public discourse, at least in the UK. On his show this morning, midday host Jo Whiley stopped by for a chat and mentioned Snow Patrol were coming in to her program later, which inspired Mr. Moyles to dust off the old "Every Car You Chase." Ms. Whiley claimed she'd never heard it, which surprises me--maybe she hates it and was just trying to be nice? Either way, Mr. Moyles and his cast of characters were effusive in their praise of the track and demanded Ms. Whiley ask Snow Patrol what they thought of it. Errr, I hope that she forgot, since from what I understand, they don't like it very much... That could have been, as Jon Stewart says, "awk-warrrrd"... Anyway listen to the Moyles segment below.

So, to all of you Brits heading over here wanting the track and about to e-mail me, first look over to the right under "NEWISH/MOST REQUESTED ITEMS." Right-click (or on a Mac just hold the mouse button down) and select "Save target as" or "Download to disk" or whatever. It should save the mp3 in your selected folder which you can then play to your heart's content. Enjoy.
Speaking of morning shows, there are rumors flying around that when Lars Ulrich from Metallica
recently stopped by some morning zoo program at a local station called "LIVE 105," he talked about enjoying my work in some fashion. He was apparently also seen later holding a Dean Gray CD. I know nobody listens to that station any more, but if someone accidentally tuned in on their way to KFOG and heard this happen, please let me know.
