A VINYL SHELF Special Presentation--ROBBIE ROBERTSON "Classic Call" Radio Program 1988

ROBBIE ROBERTSON is the guest on this radio interview program LP scheduled for broadcast on March 21, 1988. “Classic Call” was a bit different from other listener call-in radio programs. The slogan was “where the superstars of rock call YOU!” and that's what happens. If you have a question for the guest, you could send in your name and phone number and the rock star might actually dial you number to answer your question. It's funny to hear Robbie calling up the fans and saying "Hi Patti, this is Robbie Robertson" and "what are you doing?" They play a few songs from The Band also which stirs up a little conversation about relations between Robbie and the other members which get smoothed over pretty quick. Mostly though, Robbie promotes his self-titled Geffen LP that he co-produced with Daniel Lanois. As far as I remember, I didn’t hear Daniel Lanois’ name mentioned once while listening to this! Oh well, nice U2 stories though. Also, HOT Michelob commercials are included by Eric Clapton & Wang Chung!
