A quirky interview disc from Sting promoting his 1991 album TEN SUMMONER'S TALES. The format for this one is unique in that these discs were sent to radio stations for broadcast in such a manner as to give the impression that the artist was seated in the station's studio being interviewed by the actual disc jockey live on the air. The detailed track listing and liner notes provide the "questions" to be asked by the DJ, followed by individual tracks containing Sting's pre-recorded answers. Only the answers are on this CD as the DJ was required to provide the questions live. As a college DJ and campus radio station manager in 1991, you can bet this was a huge "get" to be able to imply that Sting had paid a visit to our small campus just to be interviewed by me! And yes I pulled it off, "pretending" to interview the man himself while trying not to hit PLAY on the CD player at the wrong time! (Oh, how I wish I had a recording of that broadcast...!)
