Q: What’s the most memorable thing to happen on one of your shows?

Q: What's your best tip for having a successful show?
Evan: My secret to having a successful show is to have new and exciting music every week. You can find great things and its always great to hear new music that can change the way things are. I love having people come up to me asking what that song was and I love showing them and telling them to tune in, because there is always new songs.
