Finally. A Podcast That Really Rocks.

Dec 24, 2011

Happy Holidays!  Here's is my gift to you: a rarely heard conversation with Adele before she hit it big with her album 21.  Since she can't do interviews at the moment while she continues to heal from throat surgery so this is the only audio interview with her you'll get to hear for a while.

This interview was done way back in 2008.  Her first album was doing okay at time and she had recently appeared on Saturday Night Live on what turned out to be their most watched episode (thanks to an appearance from Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential election campaign), so folks in the USA were just starting to hear about Adele.

Some key moments of this conversation is very foretelling of the future.  For example, Adele jokes about how she's far too happy at the moment to write her next album because she doesn't write happy songs, so she'll need to experience life for a bit.  Eventually she went through a heartwrenching breakup that spawned her current hit album 21 which is up for several grammys!  And keep in mind that Adele is only 19 years old at the time of this interview.  Clearly she was already a very grounded, intellegent woman with globs of talent.  It's no wonder she became the international success that she is today!
