Every once in a while you've just got to change it up.  One of the hardest things about doing this show, particularly when you're doing three and four shows a week as I was doing when this interview was recorded, is that you run the risk of losing your own energy, which then transfers down to the guests and subsequently the interview.  Fortunately, Pres Maxson seems to have energy in abundance, and it was he who largely led the "off-the-wall" mood of this week's show.  I just happily followed along.
Pres is a recent immigrant to Indiana, coming to us -- like Upshot and Finer before him -- from the bustling L.A. music scene.  I've never really been to any venues in L.A., but if it's anything like those three groups describe, I'll just be glad I'm in Indiana.  L.A. did, however, apparently give him a change to hone and refine his sense of humor and flair for showmanship, as evidenced by his music and this interview.   Look for Pres to hopefully return in the future in the guest-host role if I have anything to say about it.
