JB: For us this is the dead of winter, so how are you? DG: I’m alright. I’m sort of coming out of hibernation to do this. Sort of like a bear rubbing my eyes. People sort of think I do this for a living…it rings a bell. JB: That sounds great. So there’s a little bit of KCRW folklore that I’d like to address straight away. And this is something I’ve always heard about years ago. Before your first breakthrough, and this is probably in ’93, I was told that you performed on KCRW the day of your wedding. DG: I’ve always had a strong work ethic! She should have known she was in trouble. JB: So that is true? DG: It is, yeah. I got married in a wedding chapel down the block. Yeah. Yes it’s true I got married in Los Angeles and I was playing on the show that very day. Amongst other things ended a gig after that. JB: I think you joined Trisha Halloran at that time? DG: That’s right Trisha was doing the interview. It was a good session. It was significant, you know? JB: So how is the family? DG: The family? They’re, you know, mental--Which is English for “really well.” We prize “mentalness” over all other qualities. (laughs) They’re all fine! JB: Are you looking forward to the holidays, got any big plans? DG: I’m going to get a big Christmas Tree! Radical, I know. I’m full of ideas. Yeah, Christmas decorations and dinner, in fact. Presents I think would be good too. JB: So it actmoreless
