Happy Seattle Rock Day Rockaholics!
 
Growing up in a strict household in Eastern Washington I dreamed of what was happening in our fair city in the 90’s.  When I was 15 I heard the legend of The Late Cathy Faulkner.  Cathy spent 20 years at KISW.  Starting out as an intern moving on to nights, Music Director and Assistant Program Director at KISW during a REALLY important time.  I knew at 15 what my dream job was and was willing to do whatever it took to follow in her footsteps.  Cathy was our second personality  inductee in to KISW’s Hall Of Fame.  Her work and contributions to the Seattle music scene and the sound of KISW are immeasurable in my opinion. 
 
Peep the link to learn more on Cathy.  She was without a doubt a trailblazer for women in rock radio.  http://www.kiswhalloffame.com/kiswhof/30/default/cathy-faulkner.html
 
 Cathy and I sat down for one of my all-time favorite interviews for our 40 Years of Rock celebration.  The questions I had for her, lord! She was patient and kind.

In the interview above she spoke at great length about Pearl Jam’s Drop In The Park show, stealing Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam’s press conference and much more!
 
Here is Cathy and Ed from Drop in the Park! Were you there?
