So it's been a few weeks since SXSW wrapped up and I think I'm about 98.4% recovered. After missing it last year I went into this year head first and that seemed like a good idea at the time. No, it was honestly a blast (as it normally is). I don't know if it was because I took a year off or not, but this year seemed so much more manageable than before. Don't get me wrong, I'm always amazed how well the festival runs and how great the staff is every year, but this year something just seemed different. There were fewer "big acts" than in the past (which is how it's supposed to be) but it didn't feel like attendance was down, things were just easier. So big hats off to SXSW staff!!! They are always seem to be in the best mood even though we all come in and take over their town for a week.

OK, After being obsessed with Belle & Sebastian's last single "The Party Line" for weeks...and weeks, I finally have a different song "Stuck In My Head". What is it you ask? It's the new single from Drenge "We Can Do What We Want". People have been saying for the last year or so, "where did all the guitars go in ALT?" Well, thanks to bands like Death From Above 1979, Royal Blood and now Drenge they are back with a vengeance. The video is pretty awesome as well. I'm not totally sure what's going on it, but it's still really cool. Reminds me of a cross between "A Clockwork Orange" and every Guy Ritchie film. So take a couple of minutes sit back and check this one out, but be warned...It might get "Stuck In Your Head".

Iím Greg Beharrell.

So when Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters falls off the stage 2nd song into a show and breaks his ankle in Sweden, what does he do? Does he cancel the show and/or the tour? Oh no...he does not. He not only finishes the show, but he only had to cancel a few dates in Europe. But there was no chance he was going to cancel the Foo's 20th Anniversary Show at RFK Stadium on July 4th. I would explain how he managed to pull it off, but I'll just let Dave do it himself.

It's once again time for another episode of "WHO Is?" This time around we have fellow who is not only from some place called Canada (yet is allowed to live in San Francisco), but he is also going to start doing a column right here for FMQB. It's time to find out....WHO Is Greg Beharrell from KITS or better known as a little station called LIVE 105!

Going back in time, what was the circumstance that truly prompted you to make radio your career?
My face dragged along the birthing canal.

You told me that you are so into radio that you "literally sit at work after my show, work on stuff for my program, then read articles, and study all the players in the game (I shouldn't know about the Tucson ratings, but I do!)". No offense to the fine people in Tucson, but how long has this been a problem?
If youíre implying that Iím OCD, Iím not.
If youíre implying that Iím OCD, Iím not.
If youíre implying that Iím OCD, Iím not.

What was the last book you read?
The one the prosecutor threw at me.

You mentioned that you worked in Toronto and Vancouver before San Francisco...they are in Canada right?

I still remember the day I left Canada: beautiful scenery, fresh air, the Prime Minister reiterating the terms of my ban.

Follow up question...Did you find it difficult to sound enthusiastic when you HAD to play all of those Canadian bands? Sure...there are some good ones, but really.
Everything I do must feature Canadian content, even this sentence: sorry.
