Lights Over Paris stopped in to “The Ralphie Radio Show” – and lead singer Robb a.k.a. “TaLLLLL” became one of the first artists ever pranked live on “The RRS” – check out the interview to hear how it all went down. LOP also chatted about Kevin Rudolf’s thoughts on the band’s success and LOP’s forthcoming fall tour.

Plus, check out an acoustic version of the Rudolf-produced “Turn Off The Lights” below!

Runner Runner swung by the studio to talk about the band’s upcoming tour with Secondhand Serenade and The White Tie Affair, affliation with David Letterman, and new single “So Obvious.”

Part 2: David Letterman

The entertainment business is small. Just ask Secondhand Serenade’s John Vasely, who only a year and a half ago, shared a dressing room with a then up-and-coming Lady GaGa.

“It’s so important that you enjoy what you do and how you do it,” Vasely said while in-studio to promote his new album on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” Secondhand Serenade’s third LP, Hear Me Now, drops August 3. “(You should be) good to the people you tour with. There’s no point in being a jerk.”

Vasely noted that he and GaGa shared a few words but didn’t exchange digits. At the show, the songstress performed before Secondhand, as “Fall for You” was a massively-popular hit.

The aforementioned song put Vasely on a list of artists that will no longer grow: those who can say they premiered their music video on MTV’s “TRL.” With the void left from the cancellation of the daily countdown show, Vasely doesn’t know how he’ll reveal the video for his latest single, “Something More.”

“We filmed the video and it’s getting edited and everything right now,” he said. “I’m sure the label has some plans.”

I’ll stand by what I said on-air: “TiK ToK” is not conducive to a live performance with all of the autotune and vocal effects. That being said, in my opinion, Ke$ha still did a great job on “Saturday Night Live” and deserves props for adding parts in the beginning and bridge so that she could showcase her vocal skills. I really feel the people lashing out against her didn’t like the song in the first place.
