Radio Free David Update

November 15th, 2004 No comments

This morning I was on the radio again, filling in as guest host for WILL-AM’s interview show, Focus 580. This was the first time I’d hosted a full hour on a subject I hadn’t personally selected.

The guests were Sam and Joan McCready, writer/actors who were in town to present a one-woman play about Lady Gregory, one of the founders of Ireland’s Abbey Theatre. While I have a theatre background–including a minor from Ball State University–this is serious Theatre, something I’ve largely attempted to avoid. Plus, the book of Lady Gregory’s memoirs which our producer had helpfully provided had threatened to put me to sleep the moment I cracked the spine. I admit I was very concerned that I’d run out of questions.

Thankfully, the two were pretty chatty, so I had (barely) enough material to get through the hour, even though the only listener to call in a question wanted to know the names of the guests. And I didn’t fall asleep–bonus! It turned out surprisingly well, and it’s available on the WILL web site if anyone cares.

I’ve just been scheduled to do another show on Monday, November 29 at 1:00 pm CST with Gerard Jones, author of the book “Men of Tomorrow: Geeks, Gangsters and the Birth of the Comic Book.” Should be fun! You can listen to it live.
