the story goes like this – a couple months ago i was at my friend’s house warming party (in the hills overlooking the republic of silver lake). it was there where i had the unexpected pleasure of meeting one julie brown aka downtown julie brown. needless to say we hit it off. she’s a true believer in bringing back the reality of a music television show that actually plays music and not reality.
presently she is working with billboard and recently had me on her radio show as a guest co-host. needless to say (yet again) our rapport and on air chemistry was great…funny and flowing. i have been interviewed and on air with some great radio personalities and i would easily lump her into that group. she’s a bona fide pro at what she does and knows how to roll with it when the mics on. that’s not an easy task my friends. if she doesn’t end up with a new tv show i will be shocked – i have witnessed how much that woman is still loved by fans. she always leaves people with a smile on her face – she’s one of the good ones – nice to fans and people in general – refreshingly awesome.
here’s a clip from back in the day…what was trendsetting about her show was that it didn’t just deal with dance music and live acts but incorporated designers, stylists and fashion shows etc etc. many of those budding designers she had on are now mega-famous. how does present day mtv wake up and not puke all over itself now?
