PPL , Craig live radio promo, Craig debuts new tune

Postby Tom » Fri Feb 22, 2008 12:16 pm

Hi gang,

The guys from PPL and Poco were on the air live 102.3 KCUV radio today promoting tonight's show.

I didn't post this in advance since I didn't know about it, and that is a real shame.

I actually stumbled on it by accident when checking on some info re: tonight's show.

I was incredibly lucky; I tuned in just in time to hear Craig Fuller.

Craig and the DJ spoke about how PPL had been at Red and Jerry's a few years ago and were happy to have PPL back in the area.

Craig stated how PPL and Poco do some shows together and love it, not just because of the music but because there's a genuine friendship among the band members.

As for PPL playing to the fans today, he joked : " Our job is to make them feel old and young at the same time."

Craig then performed Boulder Skies and it sounded great ! It was amusing at one point when he kept strumming and remarked " I'm imagining the piano part." He also stated it might be the only song he's written which is based on some fact. So,once and for all, no real Amie, or Annabella !

Of course the long awaited Craig Fuller CD was mentioned. Apparently Craig has had a change of heart in regards to the title. It looks like Not Made in China will no longer be the title. As of now, it's untitled. So save those T shirts from last year ! Craig said the CD is almost done.

A real bonus ! Craig premiered a new tune from it, titled Night Train to New Orleans, " about a guy who's made to ride the train because his girl can't stay put."

It sounded terrific, just Craig and his guitar , and I'd describe it as the essence of Craig : Crafty lyrics, that voice, with a catchy, bluesy -country feel to it. The guitar work sounded real nice, a mid tempo type tune.

All the best,
Tom Sheridan

Hi Dave,

Nice to hear from you, great post !

No doubt Craig brought down the house, closing out with Oh Susannah and Campton Races. He probably saved I've Been Working On The Railroad for another show. He's always been full of surprises !

That's a great setlist. a real nice blend of his work from various stages of his career.

See you soon,
Tom Sheridan
