(KUTV) Doug Fabrizio has conducted tons of interviews during his years as host of RadioWest at KUER.

And not all of them have been perfect.

He recalls one of his worst interview experiences--with actor and writer, Spalding Gray.

Gray was in town giving a monologue, and Fabrizio had always wanted to talk to him.

"I walk in--we're like a minute to go before we're on the air--and Spalding Gray is on the ground, laying there on the ground. I'm not sure he's conscious, I'm not sure what's going on," he recalled

Gray did get up, but only gave "yes or no" answers to Fabrizio's questions.

"It was a disaster of an interview," Fabrizio said.

Fabrizio had come prepared with 15-16 pages of questions for Gray.

"I ripped through those questions, I swear, in 15 minutes," said Fabrizio. "I have not gone back and listened to that show again."
