Matthew Caws is one of the five biggest songwriting inspirations of my life. Nada Surf music is a joy to listen to, and so are his side projects. Their music has elevated my tastes, enjoyment of music, and Matthew's ability to transform energy of a mood is very restorative for me, personally. It's my honor to present a very enjoyable conversation with a peek into Nada Surf Rehearsal recording, songwriting, meaning of music, and how we can be more kind to one another. Enjoy my interview with Matthew Caws from Nada surf. 

Matthew has a new single, We are Into the Wild and We are Home".  produced with John Davis of Superdrag. Go enjoy that! And take a listen to my new album "Two Sides"

Doris Burke has long been someone I admired not just for her broadcasting gifts and abilities, but her tenacity and drive for success. I find myself similar in many ways, the serious way of approaching work and career and driving to be the best that we can, while still valuing a sense of gratitude and authenticity. I was so appreciative that Doris carved out a few minutes to talk to my students and I am thrilled to bring you this interview. Doris is best known for her work as an NBA analyst for ESPN and has had a storied career in sports broadcasting.

I hope you enjoy this podcast and subscribe for more content here on Danny Hauger Podcasts. We talk about the beginning of her career in broadcasting, her favorite NBA athlete to work with, advancing through broadcasting opportunities in New York, her role in the creation of voice overs for the NBA 2k18 video game, and her advice for young people and those seeking to be successful in broadcasting an in taking opportunities as they come in life. My students will love this motivation and I hope you will enjoy listening to it as well.

On November 20th, 17th I had the chance to go and interview my former teacher and mentor Melba Pattillo Beals. Melba was my radio teacher at Dominican University of California, she was also Communications Department chair, and this interview features conversation about history, parenting, and loving yourself and others around you. In a year and a half at San Rafael, I was fortunate enough to gain a wider lens to focus my own perspective. I was taken back mentally to the college classroom above the library where we met twice a week. I hope you enjoy this conversation nearly as much as I did. It was really nice to sit and discuss philosophy and outlook on life with Melba.

Melba inspired me to take a challenging road once and a while, and value myself along the road of life, even when you can't see what's coming around the corner. There were a lot of takeaway quotes from Melba, and I decided to highlight a few of the most motivating quotes with on screen caption.

This interview is a touching part of my past and my future simultaneously. I think we all can gain some insights and perspective from Melba's wisdom. We discuss education, faith, and potential, among many other topics. Not just a conversation about Central High School in Little Rock, we discuss a wide range of topics and I found it both informative and entertaining. To me, Its a cross section of American history and humanity. It was a pleasure to get to spend so much time discussing the uplifting side of the human spirit. Thank you Melba!

A Happy and and healthy welcome to you into today’s edition of the Hauger History Podcast, I’m pretty thrilled today to speak with one of the most multi-talented musicians I’ve had the opportunity to listen to. Joe Pisapia joins me, a singer-songwriter, producer, and performer who has worked with the esteemed likes of Ben Folds, Guster, and The Silver Seas, and is now launching a Pledge Music Campaign, which I hope you will all support at https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/joepisapia


Some of the questions that we discuss in today’s interview:

  • On https://www.joepisapia.net/ there are dozens of creative projects and albums that your stamp has been left on. Where does Joe’s musical gene come from?
  • If I had a paint mixer of influences, or a Mount Rushmore of musical me, I have Soul Asylum, Jim Croce, Guster, Nada Surf, and the Gin Blossoms. Who is on yours?
  • I love all of your cover art, nightvision, Wake My heart, they are almost sand-like mosaics of pleasing tones. Where do the covers come from?
  • “Guster on Ice” is one of my favorite DVDs, a live performance from Guster in Portland, Maine. What is the production like on a project like that?
  • I played your song, “River Song” on Titan Radio at CSUF a lot, whenever my co-host would tell stories about camping, and I began to identify with a lot of your solo work then. What inspires you to write?
  • What’s your recording and engineering philosophy with your music?
  • Tell us about your Pledge Music campaign, you’ve got some amazing items and thank you’s available!

I pledged today, in the hopes that my music is found by new artists, and I want to thank Joe for his influences on me and all of fans old and new!

Recorded on Titan Radio at Cal State Fullerton in 2009 by then General Manager Danny Hauger.

Scott Johnson remains one of my favorite guitarists of all time, from one of my favorite bands, the Gin Blossoms. I would say that I listen to at least one Gin Blossoms song daily on my car ride, radio, Pandora, Spotify, or otherwise. They have been a part of my growing up, inspiration for my own music, and a timeline as I saw the song "29" seem very far away, and now I am living it. Thanks to Scott Johnson, who in 2009, took time to be a part of my Titan Radio interview series, and we talk about the brilliance of touring, recording, and persisting to create outstanding music through so many excellent albums. Enjoy!

Guster is my heart band. I am and have been a forever fan of the group from the first time I watched the movie "Life as a House". It was right around the time I began exploring IMDB movie facts and kept seeing references to this band Guster. Then I found out that the soundtrack that kept me connected to the movie was all by the band. From that point on it seems my musical sphere of influence was permanently laden with Guster vibe. This year at the Fillmore in San Francisco we celebrated Valentine's Day with the best band around and it reminded me to "Keep it Together" and re-share this chat I had with Ryan Miller from Guster in 2009 when I was the General Manager of Titan Radio. Enjoy the show! Every once and a while I love to spotlight the influences who helped define Danny Hauger music!

Fans of live music, alternative rock, and the marvelous songwriting of Glen Phillips will have an evening to remember on March 7th at Belly Up in Solana Beach, California! What a great time to re-post my interview with front man and innovative writer Glen Phillips and offer the opportunity for a great show at the historical Belly Up! Some great names along with up and coming acts on their calendar. There is a wide range of genres for music lovers of all kinds.

Two particular shows have prompted me to finally get down the freeway to Solana Beach and  review Belly U's tradition, acoustics, and overall vibe. I am looking forward to seeing a show at this historic house of music in Southern California.  Something about Toad brings a pure sound, thoughtful lyrics, and a well constructed tempo that sings in harmony as well as any band from the style. The energy level flows through the audience for a thoroughly enjoyable concert that has a dynamic versatility lost to many bands today as the group transitions from upbeat rock to reflective ballads. Belly Up will be THE best place to be many nights of the year, and March 7th is no exception - when Toad the Wet Sprocket comes to town!

Enjoy a sample of the interview here, and more from www.mediadanny.com

Toad the Wet Sprocket

Another HUGE thrill on this Monday as I write, for just having been visiting the new Soul Asylum website to find that these guitar heroes from Minnesota are making their way to the west coast in 2013! So I will be assured to be found in Solana Beach once again on April 4th to hop onto that "Runaway Train"

Everything from "String of Pearls" to the excellent new tunes of the past two albums including "Delayed Reaction" , lot of to love about this group! By the way (Dave Pirner tears it up live!) Be there! This is going to be one of the best Southern California rock shows of 2013, don't miss out!

Honestly one of my favorite voices of all time, Tim Kitzrow, the voice over and announcer hero from NBA Jam, NFL Blitz, Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey, and dozens more video games from the arcade and home consoles. My audio here graciously takes time for an interview with me in February of 2012. Tim recently has re-released his "on fire" audio specialties with thousands of brilliant lines in the new NBA Jam: On Fire Edition that is downloadable on your next-generation system at home. From MLB Slugfest through NFL Blitz & NBA Jam, few people have been more notable voices in sports entertainment, and it is a pleasure to bring you this interview courtesy of Tim Kitzrow.

Tim Kitzrow
