John's Big Breath of "Fresh Air"
03.30.2009 - John's first major interview of the year is scheduled to run on NPR's "Fresh Air" program Tuesday, March 31st.
The interview-John's first substantial Q&A since the election-was conducted by "Fresh Air" Host Terry Gross. It will include some solo acoustic performances from his Belmont Mall studio.
One of public radio's most popular programs, the Peabody Award winning "Fresh Air" is a weekday magazine of contemporary arts and issues. It is produced at WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and heard by nearly 4.5 million listeners on over more than 450 National Public Radio (NPR) stations across the country, as well as in Europe on the World Radio Network.
There is a possibility that John's interview could be pushed back to run on a different day depending on breaking news, but it is expected to air this week. We will post updates on Mellencamp.com if there are any changes.
Gross is considered among the country's leading interviewers. Incidentally, she will share her greatest and most memorable interviews during an appearance at Indiana University in Bloomington on April 8th.
