An in-studio interview is just what it sounds like: an interview that occurs in the radio station’s studio. These interviews typically occur in the late afternoon, a few hours before an artist has a show in town. Sometimes artists will even perform live in the studio, which is a special treat for the interviewer and others involved.
The station I work at has been lucky enough to have John Vanderslice, Tim Kasher, Warren Haynes, Joe Pug, Los Campesinos, Kim Gordon & Thurston Moore (before they broke up), and many more! (For those interested, you can find our archived in-studio interviews here.)
So, how do you pull off an in-studio interview? I’ll show you!
