The audio/video quality of these clips varies greatly - they are from the days of analog TV and VHS tapes!

1992-Apr-13   KROQ Loveline    Los Angeles  

Miki and Emma appear on Loveline, the legendary KROQ Radio live call-in relationship/medical advice show, after recording their appearance on the Dennis Miller Show earlier that day. They appeared at Aron's Records the previous day.

The show still had the original hosts Dr. Drew Pinsky and DJ Jim "Poorman" Trenton and was still a local LA show. It was nationaly syndicated a few years later and became a huge success. The DJ kept forgetting Miki's name.

Before listening to this recording, its important to read about the topics discussed on the show.

1 hour 25 minutes
