How Not to Start An Interview

Here’s the start of a real radio interview (in a large market) that reminds us of the importance of planning ahead, getting to the point, pre-recording, and editing…

Host: Hi Artist, how are you?

Artist: I’m good, I’m good.

Host: That’s good. Glad to hear it. So you’re doing okay?

Artist: I am, thank you. I’m really good.

Host: I mean 2020 wasn’t the best year for pretty much anyone so you’re doing okay so far in 2021?

Artist: So far I am.

Host: That’s good. I mean, I’m sure not being able to be out there entertaining your fans was hard.

Artist: Absolutely.

Host: But you’re making the best of the situation?

Artist: I am.
