Donovan is the co-owner of The Nile Theater and The Mantooth Group. This Sunday, May 22, Combichrist performs at the Theater.

When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? 101.1-FM The Beat. I love old school hip-hop.

What's the last song played on your portable music player? "Pinky Swear," The Movielife.

What's the first record you bought? It was a Bobby Brown tape that I bought from a girl on my street. My mom threw it away because I guess it's not socially acceptable for an 8 year-old to own.

What's the first concert you saw? My mom took us to see The Lovin' Spoonful. I wish I had a cooler answer.

What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? The Suicide Machines at the old Boston's. I had to go alone because no one else wanted to go. However, it turned out to be so much fun because I had no one to impress, so I skanked until I couldn't feel my face.

Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? Digital, but I can't find my iPod right now, so I guess CD.

What's your favorite CD? The Black Album (Jay-Z). It got me through my last year of college, and it also made me hyper-sensitive to the presence of police officers (don't want to explain that one).

Who is your favorite singer or band? I love Bane and Jay-Z -- tie.

What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from 2010? Adele, 19. It came out a year or two prior, but I was on the late train and didn't really listen to it until 2010.

What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? "Humpty Dance," Digital Underground.

Who is your favorite local artist? The Format. I know they are defunct and perhaps not hip enough, but I don't care.

What is your favorite local venue to see music? The Nile.

I personally find this piece interesting. As a music lover I am always down to hear what people working in music are into. Great job, keep it up!

Why do we care  what music various people nobody's ever heard of are listening to?  Why not just feature readers selected at random and tell everybody what music they like?  It would probably be way more interesting than what you have going now..

 Concerned Music Lover,

If you want what various people are listening to than just pick up a College Times they already do that.  These interviews are done of people that are influential people in our local entertainment or dining scene.

If you have not noticed the theme of this, it is asking people in the valley who work in music and are influential to what you see and hear around town. THE WHOLE POINT is to give you an insite into the people you have not heard of who affect music day in and day out.
