My 5 Minutes of Fame at Mountain Jam in Hunter, NY

It’s been said that all DJs are frustrated Rock Stars. I got to live the dream on Saturday with a few minutes onstage at the Mountain Jam Festival in Hunter NY.

As I was driving up through the mountains, it was raining a little bit. Visions of Woodstock danced through my head and I hoped it wasn’t going to be a washout. But, as I came down into Hunter, the sun came out and stayed that way all afternoon. And what a day and night it was. Great music, good food, and a couple of nice craft beers. OK, more than a couple, but who’s counting. And of course it was awesome to meet so many I-95 listeners that either won tickets from us, or just made the trek to enjoy the weekend.

I even got to go onstage a couple of times. The first time, I introduced Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives. They did an amazing set of traditional Country. Marty came back up during Tom Petty’s set to play a song, so Tom and I have something in common: we both introduced Marty Stuart to the Mountain Jam crowd.

Later in the afternoon, I brought St. Paul and the Broken Bones offstage. I got caught up in the moment and couldn’t resist taking a picture of the crowd. Unfortunately, my camera was set to “video” and I didn’t want to waste any time fiddling with the settings, so I had to fake it. Still, very cool.

After that, it was back into the crowd for me and time for great sets from Gary Clark, Jr. and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Thanks to everyone at Mountain Jam for their hospitality. Can’t wait to do it again next year!
