Before Bob Schneider performed on the Starbucks Stage on the first day of Bumbershoot, he took some time to chat with The Marty Riemer Show backstage at the Festival.

Bob talks with Marty and Jodi about what makes Austin and Nashville different, how he wound up living in Germany for 16 years, and whether or not the military has a need for opera singers. He and Marty also bond over speaking German, while Jodi is left bewildered. Then, the whole conversation takes a ridiculously politically incorrect turn that can’t really be described.

Check out The Marty Riemer Show's backstage interview with Leonard and Curtis Hammond of Wheedle’s Groove, recorded Saturday at Bumbershoot, which also happened to be “Wheedle’s Groove Day” in Seattle, as proclaimed by Mayor McGinn.

Leonard and Curtis fill Marty and Jodi in on the history of Wheedle’s Groove, the impact disco had on the rising Seattle soul and funk scene in the 60’s and 70’s, and the new vibe that comes with playing together as a collective. They also talk about Kenny G, the one member of the original movement to hit the big time.

The Marty Riemer Show sat down with Star Anna and her guitarist Justin Davis (one of the Laughing Dogs) right before they performed on Bumbershoot’s Starbucks Stage for a huge crowd.

Star Anna tells Marty and Jodi what annoys her most about Justin, how they coordinated having musical icons Mike McCready and Carrie Akre join them onstage at the Festival, and where they live now that they’ve moved to Seattle. The duo also give some updates on recording the new Star Anna & the Laughing Dogs album.

In the first installment in a series of video interviews from Bumbershoot, The Marty Riemer Show's Marty and Jodi go backstage at the Starbucks Stage to interview Billy Bragg.

Marty gets Billy to share his thoughts on Bob Dylan, American politics, the Internet, and more. He also tells a great story about how impersonating a repairman got him a record deal.
