TMCP #416 - The 2019 Christmas Show: The 11th Annual Feature Interview with Santa Claus Himself!

For a record eleventh year in a row I had the pleasure of having on the most sought after person this time of year. He makes it a point to come on this show every Christmas and marks this as his ONLY official media interview he does each year (everyone else is a fake!). Our interview was with the big man himself, the baddest sleigh driver ever, Santa Claus!

2019 was an amazing year at The Muscle Car Place with many incredible sponsors coming on the show and Santa was generous enough to acknowledge their generous sponsorship’s. He also had some interesting things to say about the new Star Wars and answered some facts about himself for our listeners. 

If you would like to hear any of Santa’s interviews from previous years, you can find them here on the website! It all started in 2009 with Episode 28, then followed annually with Episode 67, Episode 114, Episode 160, Episode 197, Episode 233, Episode 270 ,  Episode 307, Episode 343 and last Christmas in Episode 379 We even had Santa on for our gigantic bonanza Episode 300 Celebration show!

We would like help good kids find where Santa is this year with the Google Maps based Santa Tracker and Holiday calendar! Check it out!

Thank you to everyone who made 2019 such a great year and thank you Santa for another great interview!

This week Wyotech returns with the “insider” interview we’ve been hoping for: an instructor and a student together. Our guests are diesel instructor Mark Muhsman accompanies by his student Micah Hager. This interview is specifically intended to help people considering the automotive trades to understand what the commitment of school can be, what they can do to prepare themselves to be successful PRIOR to coming to school, and (practically) what they can expect to make as a starting salary after graduation. All of those were answered!

TCMP #413 - Dan Kahn; The Inside Baseball of the SEMA Show – Jon Chase; Catching up on HOONIGAN!

This week is a special Thanksgiving Special SEMA show with Dan Kahn and Jon Chase. This is a fun to listen to show with a couple great guys live from the show floor!

Interview #1 : It was a huge pleasure to sit down again with my friend Dan Kahn and do a “State of the Nation” style discussion on the topic of SEMA – both the trade show itself as well as the organization. Dan and I met each other years past and hosted a popular podcast called “Cars for a Living” for several years together. Today Dan’s company “Kahn Media” is the PR powerhouse of choice for automotive aftermarket companies businesses. He is heavily involved with SEMA and sits on the board of directors – and just a few hours after this interview he was suprprised to win the 2019 SEMA Person of the Year award! In this interview he explains his involvement with SEMA now and many  insights into one of the most interesting parts of this industry. The Battle of the Builders discussion itself is worth the price of admissions! Check out Kahn Media at their website Kahnmedia.com

Interview #2 : Jon Chase of Hoonigan fame is another person I met years past at SEMA, thanks to the podcast . He himself has been a guest on our show – twice! The first interview was episode #159 where he talked about his dream job designing automotive toys for Maisto, as a designer for Muscle Machines. Later Jon was back on the show in episode 368 where he talked about his new dream job of Brand Manager and Art Director at Hoonigan. He has also designed clothing, promotional media, and raced his ’55 Chevy against Mike Finnegan’s (a re-match is in the works). HOONIGAN is a huge success in our industry today and this was a full discussion on that as well. You can find out more at Hoonigan.com.
