Singer-songwriter and recording artist Gary Portnoy has written many songs recorded by both himself and other artists, however his most famous composition is “Where Everybody Knows Your Name,” known to many as the theme song to the television sitcom “Cheers.” It’s the kind of interview I find the most enjoyable. You know the artist’s work, but you don’t know what their voice sounds like or how their personality is. As it turns out, Gary Portnoy is someone I appreciate and who comes across as very sincere.
