Early this afternoon (Well, it's after 2 a.m., so it was really yesterday!), I left Wasilla to head to Anchorage. I had a 2:00 appointment to be on the air with Alaska's Best, Eddie Burke, at KBYR, an affliate of Fox News Radio. I was privileged to meet him at the Wasilla TEA Party on the 4th of July, and he invited me and Denise Spencer to come on his show. This was my first time in a studio, and I was just loving the treatment: "Can we get anything for you? Would you like some coffee? How 'bout some water? You're cold? No problem; let me turn down the A.C." It was pretty cool, to say the least. Then came the big headphones, and Denise and I felt like we were in one huge vacuum. It took some getting used to.
Eddie makes it easy to relax. He's so wild, loud, and passionate that you can't help but get into the whole spirit of it. I loved being in the studio, talking about Governor Palin, explaining the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee, and taking questions from callers. Then an hour after we started, Rachelle Friberg, our new San Diego Organizer, called in to be interviewed. I must say the three of us made a great team. Actually, I should say four of us because he put April on the air briefly to talk about the Alaska aspect of the Committee and to tell people how they can get involved right here in the state.
