From The Roxy to the Palomino Stage, the weekend is certainly going to serve as a personal reference to, and reminder of, many of the moments, places and milestones in my early career. Again I want to thank Stacy Vee and Goldenvoice for letting us throw a "Bakersfield Beat" party at Stagecoach, and express my lasting gratitude to Scott Greenstein, Steve Blatter, Joey Black and everyone at SiriusXM for collaborating with me to allow the channel a great first year on the air."
