It’s been a really great year at AMP Radio between incredible switch parties, amazing concerts, events with the AMP-Tourage, crazy contests, and everything in between. We are just so happy with the year we just had and can’t thank you enough. With 2011 coming to an end, we decided to take a quick look back at some of our favorite interviews of the year, as well as LOTS of very honorable mentions!

Carson has had some amazing guests in studio this year, but the one that really takes the cake is when Lady Gaga came to the station and announced her new single, “You and I“, and then performed it LIVE on-air for the first time!! She hadn’t performed the song over the air-waves on a radio station ever ever ever and it was just insane. Four lucky listeners were invited to enjoy the incredible performance with some of our staff. It was one of the most memorable things to ever happen at AMP Radio, without a doubt.

We have done many events with LMFAO, they are one of our favorites for sure, but NOTHING tops this hilarious interview they did with Michelle at our Masquerade at the Palladium. Decked out in full costume, dressed as Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage the boys stayed in character the ENTIRE time and even broke a few things in full rock & roll style. It was just plain awesome.

Other Michelle interviews we totally loved:



Kelly Rowland

Wiz Khalifa

Justin Bieber took some time from his insane schedule and swung by the AMP Radio studios to hang with our good pal Booker! Never one to miss making a grand entrance, The Biebs showed up in his Batman car, which caused quite the stir around the station. Once everyone got over the fact that his car is cooler than any of ours will ever be, he told us about his new Christmas album and life on the road!

Just when we thought McCabe’s interviews for 2011 couldn’t get any better, and he did A LOT of interviews, the dog-father of hip hop, Snoop Dogg, stopped by with his good friend Wiz Khalifa to hang at AMP Radio. They couldn’t have been any cooler to our staff as they talked about their new movie and album “Mac & Devin Go To High School.” Check out the video of them kicking us a quick sample of one of the tracks off the album and read the FULL interview here.

The boys of Far East Movement are no strangers to hanging with AMP Radio, and we are beginning to think that they may just be BFF’s with our overnight DJ, Seena. This interview comes to us straight from the backstage area of our Masquerade at The Palladium, and the boys treated us with nothing but kindness and respect. We heart them a lot.
