Back in December 2013, local musician, Bill Maakestad, played a Muddy Creek Guitar at concert. Afterwards, local radio newsman, Rich Eggers, said he would like to do an interview with me sometime close to some of my sales. Summer is a big time for sales with town festivals and fairs. A few weeks ago, Rich had me in the studio for an interview. That weekend was Macomb's Heritage Days Festival. Rich came out and talked with a customer. The interview airs Monday, July 14th, on Tri States Public Radio, Macomb's WIUM 91.3.

The background music is me playing, some from in the studio, some from Heritage Days.

Here's a link to the interview on their website. You can listen to the interview and see some pictures he took.

Hope you enjoy!
