What song do you like to sing at the top of your longs?
Katie: "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cindi Lauper. Put's a smile on my face every time.
Ella: Well, actually I prefer duets. Katie and I do a magical a cappella rendition of Hall and Oates' "You Make My Dreams Come True."
Is "American Idol" overrated?
K: I was a huge Ruben Studdard fan. He was good, but I also love thousand island dressing and pastrami and sauerkraut. I prefer a good Reuben sandwich over "American Idol."
E: I'm still sour about Justin Guarini's loss. The votes were rigged. I don't know if "American Idol" is overrated, but Kelly Clarkson as a country musician certainly is. Her collaboration with Jason Aldean is appalling.
Why did you become a DJ?
K: Why not? Its fun, relaxing, and people think you are really cool. Plus, I do nothing else around campus.
E: I'm a big fan of the local radio station The Wolf. They play the best country music in Maine and Katie and I really aspire to be just like them. We also thought it would be kind of cool to pair the country music with Bowdoin sports updates to keep the community up to date with the Polar Bears.
If animals could sing, which do you think would have the best voice?
K: Polar Bears.
What do the Jonas Brothers and 50 Cent have in common?
K: They both will never be played by the Big Girls, although 50 Cent has some great lyrics especially in his song "Magic Stick."
E: They're both really good at making bad music.
If you could meet any live musician or artist, who would you meet and why?
K: I think I would have to say Eminem. It would be nice if his daughter, Hailie, was there. I've heard so much about her and I would love to see the father-daughter dynamic. He confuses and fascinates me.
E: Reba. 'Nuff said.
What is your favorite song lyric, and from what song?
K: "I'm so much cooler online" by Brad Paisley from the song "Online." One of Brad's most clever songs.
E: I'm gonna copy Katie with another Brad song. The lyric "Moonlight on a duck blind / Catfish on a trot line" from the song "Mud on the Tires" just brings me right back to my high school days.
What piece of music advice would you give Carrie Underwood?
K: Well first off, I would like to say congrats on her recent engagement. As for music advice, keep beltin' 'em out girl.
E: Carrie, you're really a true role model to young girls in America. Just stay true to who you are as a young woman and keep rockin' the red carpet! Go get that Grammy!
Do you play a musical instrument? If so, what and for how long?
K: If you count my stint in the third grade play as the soloist recorder, then yes, 11 years of recorder experience.
E: Does air guitar count? If so, expert.
What country song would you recommend others?
K: "Red Dirt Road" by Brooks & Dunn.
E: "Red Ragtop" by Tim McGraw.
What's the first concert you ever went to?
K: Bruce Springstreen. With my mom. Grade five.
E: Trisha Yearwood. With my mom. And aunt. Grade five.
If you wrote a song entitled "Bowdoin College," give a lyric from it.
K: I am not creative enough to do that. Writing isn't my specialty. I am more of a math person.
E: I think I should steer clear of the song writing and stick to just playing music instead of making it.
