I’ve been a fan of Talking Heads since the 70s. So when KSCA launched in July of 1994, and I was able to book David Byrne as our very first artist to appear for an interview and performance, I was psyched! And I got to host him.

The station had only been on the air for a few days, and we hadn’t yet dubbed our performance space The Music Hall.

He agreed to play two songs – a new one and an old favorite. For the old favorite, he chose “Nothing But Flowers,” but lamented that he didn’t remember the lyrics. So we pulled out the CD insert and made a copy of the lyrics for him to use.

The date was July 6, 1994…
