Michael Feldman, the host of the popular “Whad ‘ya Know” radio show, stopped by the studio today. He’s in town for a show tomorrow morning at The Florida Theater … which will also be live on the radio at 11:00. And yes, I’ll be in the audience.
Actually, I’ll be on stage, albeit briefly. Somebody’s gotta introduce him.
We did a very brief (2 minute) very impromptu break during “Day to Day” this afternoon. I don’t know if he ever answers a questions seriously, but he didn’t with me. But I’m willing to play, and I think I gave as good as I got.
We got on the subject of bicycles, which all started with a “you look good, no you look good” schtick. He asked “Stationary bicycle?” “Nope, real bike with wheels. This is Florida, and we can get out on a bicycle in January”. And so on and so on … for 2 minutes.
Bob Culkeen, pictured here in the green shirt at far right, took him to Russ-Dohs’ for lunch today. If you don’t know about Russ-Dohs’ it’s not something I can explain here. Also pictured, from right to left, are Rick Jonson, Michael Feldman, Geri Cirillo, myself, and Kevin Meerschaert.
I’m very much looking forward to tomorrow’s show. It’s a lot of fun watching live radio being produced. Garrison Keillor was here a few years ago, and it was very interesting to sit and watch A Prairie Home Companion live. “Whad ‘ya Know” is a different kind of program, but should be no less interesting or fun. I DO listen to the show nearly every week, so the behind-the-scenes look will be a real bonus.
Speaking of bonuses, I got a new MP3 player yesterday. Today, I downloaded the audio portion of “Week in Review“, and saved it to the player. It worked perfectly. It will be helpful for hearing other shows that I miss.
Speaking of the player, I have a bit of a rant about Dell computer, where I originally tried to buy it, but I’ll safe that for another post.
