WCQ230 Amy Ray

Host: Amy Matheny with co-Host Kelli Simpkins

Amy and Kelli are up late and being silly. You know, their usual. What did they think of the Mad Men season premiere? Kelli remembers her first Indigo Girl concert. The girls give their best efforts to create their own Real Women of Genius ads. No really, they try. Amy takes a moment to remember the truly inspirational Randy Pausch.

Courtney Parks: Hey Amy, Loved every minute with "the southern lesbian Amy's!" Amy Ray is a goddess to me and I've followed Indigo for 20 years. Her solo stuff is my favorite music in the world. And I would kill to be on the other end of the phone from that voice! I have no idea how you handled it. You are a rock star getting the interview (OK, I know you've talked to lots of famous people but she, in my book, is at the top of the list) and a very lucky woman too... Courtney
