Hi all, I’m currently in Minneapolis at a public radio conference, where it was announced that Al, Glynn and I won the Talent Quest. It’s been a whirlwind of fun…yesterday we were on stage at the BEAUTIFUL headquarters of Minnesota Public Radio, before about a hundred producers, chatting with Bill Radke of Weekend America about our upcoming show pilots. Then we enjoyed a huge party (open bar!), and then around 9:30pm we all came back to the hotel and had another huge afterparty in a two-floor suite where the booze continued flowing until about 3am (?). There are photos that I won’t regret but others may. There was a bed involved. I’m not clear on the details.
At 9:30 this morning Al, Glynn and I cabbed it back to MPR to do an extended on-air interview with Bill Radke . . . I think that’ll be on this Saturday’s Weekend America.
Afterwards, Al and Glynn ran off to the airport. My plane doesn’t leave until 5:30 tonight, so I explored St. Paul a bit before coming back here to the hotel. Now I’m just waiting to hear from my pal Ducky (nee David, nee Fowlsound) so we can grab some hangover-curing munchies and see a bit of Minneapolis. I’ve never been here before and it’s a beautiful day for exploring (maybe 70 degrees and sunny!). So, that’s the report for now.
I owe you all so much thanks for helping me get here by logging on and voting, and really showing the public radio folks that you want more critical thinking on the air. Hugs, kisses, etc.!
