DJ Ron: What inspired the "Some Lovin" cover that you did with the Murk Boys?
Kristine W: Oh, I heard it and thought it was really genius.
DJ Ron: The video looked like it was a lot of fun; do you have any fun backstage stories to share?
Kristine W: Yes, I was really surrounded by drag queens and who knows what back there, it was pretty crazy. It's always a party backstage, they should charge admission.
DJ Ron: Whose idea was the "Got Murk" t-shirt?
Kristine W: I think that was Victor Lee, at the label. Although I think because my guy's a dairy farmer, they thought that was pretty funny too.
DJ Ron: So many levels there. I hear you are shooting a video for "Fly Again," what's the storyboard like?
Kristine W: Oh, it's more like a dream sequence, but it's kind of punk rock and rock like that, elements of 80's and punk rock, it's surely cool, very dark.
DJ Ron: How did you meet up with the Scumfrog?
Kristine W: I met Scumfrog in New York, he was coming back from Amsterdam and we just hit it off. He's a good musician.
DJ Ron: He's an incredibly talented producer.
Kristine W: Yes, he's a great producer too, he's a good guy.
DJ Ron: You two work really well together?
Kristine W: Yes, we do get it together.
DJ Ron: How did you choose the producers for this album?
Kristine W: We chose the producers depending on what they could add to the album. We were bringing different elements; jazz and rock and a little R&B, bringing different elements into dance music, and so we chose people who understood how to do that and also used live instruments in with the dance music, with the sequencing and programming.
DJ Ron: Like "Broken" and "Big Big Band" has like a really big band feel to it.
Kristine W: Yes.
DJ Ron: Where did all those instruments come from?
Kristine W: That's me playing the saxophone and then you hear all the insruments, that's a symphony behind me.
DJ Ron: Wow, did you perform with a symphony?
Kristine W: Nashville Symphony.
DJ Ron: Cool, I live in Nashville and its full of songwriters. When you are writing songs - which comes first, the track or the lyric?
Kristine W: Well, sometimes the track, sometimes the lyric. It's fifty-fifty actually, it really is fifty-fifty.
DJ Ron: "Some Lovin" was featured in the TV show Queer as Folk; did you write any of the songs on this album with like a TV show or movie in mind?
Kristine W: No, but some of them are very appropriate for them.
DJ Ron: I'm thinking "The Wonder of It All", it strikes me as like a perfect movie theme.
Kristine W: Yes, I think it would be perfect.
DJ Ron: Or even for commercials? You were a spokesperson for MAC cosmetics and there are several other pop stars who are representing products. Is there an automobile or soft drink or clothing brand that you would like to big-up?
Kristine W: I'm not much of a campaigner, but I'd love to for makeup, wigs or maybe vitamin water. I don't know, milk?
DJ Ron: Got milk? Funny how we came back to that. Let's get serious for a moment, A lot has happened since your last album "Stronger", and September 11th marked a very personal struggle. Would you care tell us where you were on this date?
Kristine W: I was at UCLA getting a stem cell transplant to fight acute myeloid leukemia.
DJ Ron: And luckily you've come through OK out of all of this?
Kristine W: So far, so far.
