"Documentaire" On French Channel MCM
September 23, 1999
    An interview with Tori was shown on a French music channel called MCM on September 23, 1999 on a show called "Documentaire". Toriphile Tracy Streimish has sent me a complete transcript of the interview, which was conducted on August 6, 1999. As Tori was speaking, they would show various footage as music from "to venus and back" played. I am not sure where the footage was from, although it could have been England. Read the interview because it is very good!

Radio stations 101.9 The Mix & Q101 In Chicago (Tori with Mancow)
September 15, 1999
    On Wednesday, September 15, 1999, Tori performed at a secret location in downtown Chicago, IL for the Eric and Kathy show on radio station The Mix 101.9FM. The studio audience won tickets through the station's web site. Tori seemed to be in a good mood and answered the standard questions with humor. She also told some funny stories about seeing cows in Chicago, Dave Matthews and her tour bus, playing at the Myrtle Beach Hilton when she was seventeen, where her Girls come from, America's misconception of fairies, and some fourth grade angst. Toriphile Jennifer Frantom has sent me a transcript of this this appearance, and you can read it on my TV/Radio Archives.

    Earlier that same morning Tori appeared on the Mancow show on Q101 (101.1 FM) in Chicago. At this time I have no further details on that appearance. If anyone else does please email me. Tori was in Chicago that day to perform as part of the 5 1/2 Weeks tour with Alanis. You can find a nice photo of Tori with Mancow in the photos section of You can hear sound clips of Tori performing Concertina, Purple People, and Icicle live at, and I think they are from this radio appearance.
