Every once & awhile I get these ideas that always start with "Wouldn't that be cool if..." Then I decide if I have the balls to go through with it. If I can make it possible. More often lately, I've been doing it, and it's been awesome.
This is Charlie's first year on Pass The Mic, so I asked if she wanted to have anyone on. Good-friend-Erin-that-Jocelyn's-still-never-met is the first person that came to mind.
Then on a whim I decided it'd be sweet to have Mason Rack, a musician who's in town from Australia, on Pass The Mic 2009. He's been touring across Canada for the past 4 months, & finally gets to go home next week. However, 4 people in the studio is a crazy thing to imagine. So we did 45 minutes each, starting with Charlie. Mason was pretty stoked, but had to get ready.
