    Sound Focus tomorrow

    Advertisements
    Okay, since I got told off for not telling people I was going to be on King 5 last week, I figure I better tell you guys ahead of time that I'll be on Sound Focus (local NPR in Seattle) tomorrow at 2:50pm. My interview is at 11:30am (fingers crossed it goes well!) and it airs later that day. This is my first in-studio radio interview. Normally I do them over the phone. So this is another first for me.

    I think you can: http://www.kuow.org/program.php?current=SF click on Listen Live.

    They said it will air at 2:50pm, so I'm guessing it's probably only going to be 10 minutes.

    I'm seriously drooling for Indian food. I'm so glad you work 2 blocks from where I'll be and know good restaurants around there!

    I listened. If they podcast it, which I think they will, I can convert it to mp3 and snip out your portion, if you'd like. A lil something I learned while making my own ringtones.

    You were great, altho, compared to the interviewer who was typical npr calm and soothing, you were quite bubbly.

    They seem to get stuck on rowan and navy tho. Too bad they can't ask some more diverse questions. Military is not all about deployments and kids. There's so much more people don't know...which is why there's a book.

    It's up on their site now. http://www.kuow.org/rss.php?program=focus my part starts at 43:37 on the file. If you can snip it, that would be great!

    I've discovered that even though they can edit, they don't always Another time I'll treat it like a live one. Ooops.

    He wanted a very narrow specific focus to talk about, so I suggested deployments, but yeah, I was hoping to get more "general" info out, but he did tell me they were more interested in personal experiences for that show, so I knew most of it would be talking about my family. But I got to plug Daddy Dolls <insert shameless plug for www.hugahero.com> so that was good.

    It's all a learning experience for me. This was my first studio interview so that was very new for me.

    Lunch was fab! Although another time I should bring a curry back for Chris! He was glad for the naan, but would have preferred a curry too. LOL
