Recognition - 2

Back in December, I posted a little rant about WINA-AM canceling the overnight, syndicated radio program, The Joey Reynolds Show.

A few weeks later, to my surprise, I was contacted via email by Myra Chanin, the booking producer for that show, asking if I would be available to appear on The Joey Reynolds Show at some future date. One condition: Joey only does in-studio interviews, so I would have to be in New York to be on the show.

I accepted the invitation and we settled on the date of Friday, March 23.

My interview will be recorded before the show goes live, so I don't know exactly when it will air, but my best guess is it will be on during the morning of Saturday, March 24, sometime after the "Jewish Hour" (a weekly feature of The Joey Reynolds Show that showcases comics in the Borscht Belt tradition, as well as the program's idiosyncratic conversation).

Because of the show's freewheeling nature, there is no specified topic for my interview, but a possible starting off point might be "being picked out of the internet and ending up on a national radio show."

A description of The Joey Reynolds Show, photos, and podcasts of recent shows can be found on the WOR-AM web site. Those of you who are lucky enough to live in markets where the show can be heard, please listen in.

Rick, that's great! Good luck, and see if you can maybe get an mp3 file of the interview to share with your readers, OK?

Best blessings, and let us know how it goes, OK?
