Guest chit chat for radio

I host a local radio show of, well, local music. We've had several bands come in and play, which is cool, and I think I've developed a pretty good tool box of interview questions and conversational pieces for that situation, there all all sorts of good/eh/bad lists of questions to ask musicians about their music, but now we want to expand it a bit and occasionally have local musicians/celebs come in and pick out the play list as a guest/co DJ. Outside of the pretty generic "Well jim-bob why did you pick THAT song?" could you help me develop good conversation starters/questions for this situation?

CBC interview on Paleoscatology?

Trying to locate a recording of an interview I heard on CBC in the early 90s about paleoscatology. THE most fascinating radio interview I've ever heard. Searches on CBC sites, Google, have turned up nothing.

I want to avoid the reverse of that Sigur Ros interview.

I have managed to book a phone interview with a somewhat famous Detroit techno group for a radio show. I have never interviewed anyone before beyond being on a job interview committee. What do I ask?

oddly tragic voting radio story

NPR-story-with-little-to-go-on-filter: Several years ago, I heard a radio story involving a tribal election in which one candidate was represented as being for re-investing funds in the tribe, while another was for direct payments to tribe members. An tribe member, interviewed, said he'd vote for the latter, although even he didn't think it was best for the tribe or for him in the long term -- because he wanted the cash. [more inside]

amazing interview with Ray Nagin - where is it?

I am looking for a recording of a recent radio interview with New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin on radio with WWL's Garland Robinette. The interview took place sometime around 6 or 6:30 am UTC (- or roughly a half hour to an hour ago as I am posting this), and is the most amazing thing I've ever heard from a politician. Some quick-on-the-draw person must have recorded it. [more inside]

Audio enhancement question

What are the best tricks, using an audio program like Audacity, for improving a recording of a phone interview where the other guy sounds really quiet, but your voice is loud? What compression/decibal settings are typically best, and what other effects will bring the quiet voice up -- perhaps without making the loud voice much louder? [more inside]
