Show's over (for now)
March 8, 2006 - 00:07.
Wow, I made it seven weeks on KTLK! But as of last Saturday, th-th-th-that’s all, folks. At least for now. Clear Channel’s budgetary axe has swung and I was a part of the log they just couldn’t send sap through any more. (I must admit, I’m expensive…but I’m worth it. Single, well-to-do 40-something men, take note.)
Program director Doug Westerman couldn’t have been kinder about giving me the news. Clearly as pained to say goodbye to me as I was to him, he said he thought the show was going well, but that he had no choice because “ANNE’S SHOW” stuck out like a leafy limb on a wintery tree when CC account-o-bots went scanning the books. In fact, he’s writing me a letter to the effect that we “did radio right” on Night & Day, for which I’m thankful.
Look for me to spring up again soon, either online or on the air, if I can find a new radio home. We have not yet begun to scratch the surface of the Twin Cities art scene.
I may simply blog-it for a bit while I figure out the next iteration of the show, so don’t be surprised to hear from me. And I’ll keep the website up to date with fun events for you to attend.
Thank you for listening, and if you haven’t already…start SEEing art!
