Documentary Spotlight – Mega-Lo-Mania Interview featuring MegaRan and Michael Cardoza

play audio Documentary Spotlight   Mega Lo Mania Interview featuring MegaRan and Michael Cardoza

Mega-Lo-Mania is a documentary following MegaRan’s Tour of the Southwest with a backing band (The Lo Classics) for the first time ever.

I really enjoyed this interview, as we started off with getting to know Michael Cardoza, the Director of Mega-Lo-Mania.  Michael’s history in the music industry, and how his career as a cameraman for the news channel led him into this new venture with his own film production company. About halfway through we are joined by the one, the only MegaRan! He was currently traveling through the Arizona desert, and we get his take on everything from the recent UK tour, tricks for dealing with customs, crayola crayons, and the burning question of why is Burnt Sienna the best color from the big box of 64?!

So much more and  we really had a blast!
