Over the 20 years of Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins, there have been many notable, celebrity guests who have sat across the desk from Mike. Here are a few of those guests and some memories shared by producers of the show.
Erin Keever, Charlotte Talks producer shared one of her favorite episodes.
"This was before my time at the station but is still one of my favorites. Richard was so over-the-top enthusiastic. He was this ball of energy singing songs with Mike and making jokes. Mike had his hands full, but you could tell the two of them were having a lot of fun on-air. His warm and genuine side came through the radio too, you got a sense that under all the sequins, he’s a sensitive person who really cares about other people."
THE AVETT BROTHERS
"We had the Avett Brothers on when they were just beginning to hit the big time. It was fun to talk to this group and then watch their music explode on the national scene," recalled Wendy Herkey, the show's executive producer.
"Kathy Reichs has been a frequent guest. She and Mike have a wonderful chemistry. I always enjoy hearing about her writing and the Tempe Brennan/Bones series," said Wendy Herkey.
THE BACON BROTHERS
Delta Burke, the actress, was "super nice and gracious," remembered Herkey.
