FB: And today on the hot seat we have none other than Mr. Greg Hopkins: trumpeter extraordinaire, band leader, composer and a member on the Boston and Berklee scene for many many years.
GH: Actually, 33 years now, 1974 I moved to Boston.
FB: Nice to have you here Greg.
GH: Nice to be here.
FB: You're one of the few people who actually wrote some notes for himself.
GH: Well when you ask me to recall some of this history oh boy my mind is so much in the present and in the future. I don't think in the past too much. But there s' so much great history that I've been involved in here. So, it's fun to think about and actually review so this could be interesting.
FB: Yeah well I certainly expect it will be. Maybe we can get kicked off with a little personal background back in Detroit.
