2015 was a great year on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, my 7th year on the show and one of creative resurgence.Â In addition to my Independent Minded and Significant Others podcasts, I wrote and produced a bunch of new show opens and even performed live on the air a few times.Â Thanks to all who helped nurture that creativity, particularly Coaster Boy Josh and my talented interns, who helped contribute to the first-ever Elvis Duran and the Morning Show Holiday House Band.Â Hoping to do more like this in the new year – to all my friends and fans on the show, Happy New Year!!
Thanks to my Independent Minded podcast on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, I’ve not only gotten to know some cool musicians, but also found a few kindred spirits.Â Nicholas Megalis is one of those people, an Ohio bred alternative musician who has come into his own on creative phone app Vine, to the tune of 4 million followers.
I recently invited Nick back up to the morning show to do some Vines with the crew.Â Thanks mostly to Nick’s fearless creativity and lots of coffee, our efforts inspired my normally subdued co-workers to get loose and have some fun.Â A really cool experience.Â See the results below.
