I was invited to The Morning Detour Morning Show to talk about Ridley Fox, Dr. Nita Parris, and Eddie Barrow.

Friday morning was a bit of a treat for me as it was the first time I was invited to join Wizzy Moonchaser and guest host, professional singer Shaharah Sinclair, on The Morning Detour radio show, CKUT 90.3 FM. It was a treat because Shaharah and I went to the same high school. This was the first time in years that we saw each other.

It was great to be recognized by a station that is part of the Montreal independent radio community, which isn’t controlled by the same people who own publishing houses. Since this is a Hip-Hop-themed radio show, it was also an excellent opportunity for me to help gain more exposure to Montreal’s Black community.

While I love doing radio interviews, one of my biggest pet peeves while discussing my books is that my biggest fear is revealing spoilers. You’ll notice that I’m not as relaxed when I speak during the interview compared to when I have a regular conversation. The reason is while I’m speaking, I’m simultaneously assessing my next words to ensure that I don’t reveal a plot spoiler. It’s awkward, and you’ll notice that once Wizzy Moonchaser spoke above me, I lost my train of thought and repeated something I mentioned earlier. I only noticed this when I played back the video.

Aside from that, I enjoyed talking about Ridley Fox, Dr. Nita Parris, and Eddie Barrow. I posted the video below for your convenience. I join in on the conversation around the 1:30 mark.

Russell Brooks is the author of four suspense thrillers. Jam Run will be released in the first quarter of 2023.

CKUT 90.3 FM is a part of McGill Campus Radio. The Morning Detour is on every Friday from 7 to 9 AM.
