John McFee of The Doobie Brothers is nearing nearly 30 years as a full-time member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band.  This multi-instrumentalist was a co-founder of Southern Pacific and played with numerous notable musicians including Elvis Costello, Van Morrison, Huey Lewis and The Grateful Dead.  In November of 2008 multi-award winning program director Ray White caught up with John at his hotel, before hitting the stage, to talk about several highlights of his musical career, life as a "Doobie," and the amazing craftmanship that only the band can deliver.  The Doobie Brothers latest album is Liberte.  In our "showcase segment" we feature another "brother" who played full-time with the band from 1974 to 1979 - Jeff "Skunk" Baxter.  He was also in Steely Dan and has played on albums by over two dozen top performers.  His brand new album is titled Speed of Heat.  We close out this show with Joseph Williams who has been lead vocalist for Toto on over a half-dozen of their albums since 1986 and has nearly a dozen solo albums during his career, with the latest titled Denizen Tenant.  World-class musicians...you'll find them Sittin' In With The CAT!
