An Interview with Stephen Horton on Motivational Radio

I had the pleasure recently of being interviewed by Stephen Horton aka Rezinator on his radio show called The Highway of Dreams. You can hear the interview here. Click on the link under Rezinator speaks with Luigi Cappel. 

I really enjoyed chatting with Stephen who is an excellent musician in his own right. We talked about a number of my experiences over the years and discussed a few of my songs.

You can hear my songs You Oughta Run, which features the awesome sax playing of my friend Charly Nice, Old Flame which I wrote about a school reunion and Rarotonga, which I wrote over there, its a bit in the style of Chet Atkins, one of my heroes in the guitar world. If you’d like to know the stories behind those tracks, listen to the show. You can also hear those tracks on my Reverbnation page.

Telephone Card

Telephone CardI wrote a song several years ago which I wanted to make a musical slide show video out of. Unfortunately I have no idea what happened to the photos. This morning I saw a post on Facebook promoting Twitpic. I haven’t used it for year, so I followed the link and connected it to my Twitter profile and up came two of the photos that I had taken at Chartwell Foursquare for the song along with a pile of other photos that I took a few years ago.

This is the part where the Indian grocer is telling me that if I give him my Seiko watch, he will give me a loan for a $2 telephone card so I can call a cab to get home. Mahesh was wonderful when I asked him to pose for these photos, he thought it was a cool idea. I hope I can find them again. You can hear the song on my Reverbnation page.

Rarotonga is an awesome place to have a relax and get some musical inspiration. I wish I was back there now. I guess I’ll have to think warm (its winter in New Zealand) and enjoy the memories.
