I met Glenn Frey once. It was around 1991. I was working as an assistant to Jim Ladd at KLSX in Los Angeles. Frey was a guest on Jim's show one night. He brought several bottles of beer for the two to share.
My job was to screen calls before they went on air. When I asked the callers what they were going to ask Glenn, they answered with questions about songwriting, touring, etc. Then when they got on the air they inevitably just blurted out "When are The Eagles getting back together?"
During a commercial break, I went in to the booth and apologized. I explained that they were intelligent with me on the phone, but lost it when they got on air.
Glenn smiled and said, "OK, Cris. But if the next calls suck, we're blaming you."
