Two weeks ago I posted an interview with critically acclaimed recording artist DONNIE during which he publicly stated that he was family.

In an interview that will air on Monday, July 23 with Farai Chideya of NPR News & Notes, DONNIE, who recently released his sophomore album, The Daily News (June 19, 2007) on SoulThought Entertainment, gets personal and political about his new album, his departure from Motown, and his life. 

The interview airs Monday, July 23. Local station’s air time of the program is available at www.npr.org/stations. Audio of the interview will be available on www.npr.org

The Daily News is currently available at retail stores nationwide including, Circuit City, FYE, Best Buy, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, and Virgin Megastore.  The album is also available online at iTunes.com.

News & Notes, hosted by Farai Chideya from the NPR West studios in Culver City, Calif., is heard by nearly 700,000 listeners each week and explores fascinating issues and people from an African American perspective.

There’s also an exclusive interview with Donnie done by L.A. Weekly’s own Ernest Hardy in this week’s edition.  You can pick it up on stands in L.A. or check out online by clicking here.
