Man Of The Hour just ended its 20th season on idobi radio. The podcast is hosted by Simple Plan Guitarist Sebastien Lefebvre and music journalist Patrick Langlois. Man Of The Hour has become a huge success, reaching over 225,000 listeners each episode- becoming a cult favorite among listeners.
We were able to talk to Sebastien and learn what he is most proud of, how he started with idobi Radio and learn a little more about him!
1. How did you two become friends? Did you meet through Simple Plan, or was it before that?
S: Pat was actually Chuck’s friend in school. I barely know him.
2. What made you guys decide you wanted to create this podcast?
S: Iidobi Radio’s guru Tom forced us to do it. Kind of like in Breaking Bad. Aaron Paul’s character is basically a slave in the last season. We’ve grown to accept our fate…
3. Where would you like to see ‘Man of the Hour’ go from here?
S: I’m still amazed by the fact that we are about to start season 20… Hopefully there’s still many more seasons to go. Being on idobi Radio is the perfect place for this show to shine and be heard.
4, If you were talking to someone who is new to the show or someone who is interested in it, how would you describe it to them?
S: It’s a show about the depth of our souls. Patrick and I get together to discuss the issues that make us who we are. We also play a lot of new music we feel people should hear and bands they should know about.
5. Would you say your backgrounds in music and with the band influence the show?
S: It has. Being in music makes it really fun for me to research new bands to play.
6. What would you say is your proudest moment with both the show and with Simple Plan?
S: In both cases, the thing I’m the most proud of is the longevity of the projects. Never would i have thought that SP would be where we are today after all this time and with no lineup change. Same with MOTH. We’ve been on the air for more than 10 years now.
7. Looking back on everything you two have accomplished, is there anything you would tell your younger selves to do differently or any advice you would give them?
S: I would say: “Keep it up buddy! You’re doing GREAT!”
