Big Noodle Lou Pays Homage To The Great Carlos Santana
Many folks know me as the guy on the radio. However, what some folks may not know is that when I'm not on the radio, I'm usually indulging in my OTHER passion...... Guitar Playing. Whenever I'm not at work, you can usually find a guitar in my hands....even sometimes when I AM at work, you'll see me noodling away on one of my Axes.
As I've mentioned before, many Radio Personalities take pride in being "Music Curators". They expose listeners to new music, or play older songs from their favorite artists while passing along tidbits of information about the music they play for their listeners. They "Talk The Talk". However, fewer Radio Personalities actually dabble in MAKING music. And as a Musician myself, I feel that I "Walk The Walk" . I believe that being a Musician helps me gain an additional perspective on the music that I'm playing on the air, because it helps me connect to the SONGS deeper, which hopefully helps me relate to my listeners better. As a matter of fact, many of the songs that we play on Nick 97.5 ARE tunes that I've played in my cover bands over the years, and songs that bring back many fun and fond memories for me.
