I hear you all.
And even the critical mavens, thanks, I appreciate your input. Gauging all your thoughts and opinions, after all, without them, I don't have a show. No really.
Some feelings of my own---
*We're two weeks and four shows into a long journey--I hope. Give me time. I'm lining up the very best guests, (you ain't heard nothing yet); guests that would rival anyone Else's. The scope of people; the variety from sports, entertainment and news is evident and I'm grateful for that.
As for my interview technique, well, it is what it is. I'm sorry to those of you who don't like my style. You can't please everyone. The interruption deal is fair game and for that I'm sorry--but we have a slight delay between the guest line and my mic, (we're working on that.) It's something I think you'll hear noticeable improvement over the next coming weeks, like I said, give me a chance--we're new.
Yeah, I tend to embellish some questions to guests. This is not CSPAN. Its a brand. Me. I'd ask you to be patient and let me evolve my nuance because I promise you you're going to hear questions asked to guests you'll never hear on the other shows. That might sound pretentious-if so, so be it. Obviously, I will work on some issues that many of you have chided me on, (then again, it's ironic that the biggest howlers seem to be listening to the entirety of the show--thanks.)
The most successful talk shows don't necessarily need nor require a ton of calls. We're just in the initial process of getting this project started. Outside of pre-show industry on-line buzz, we haven't had a whole lot of time to promote the program. That said, we've received some great traction and I'm delighted with the quality of the guests and outline of the show. In due time, we will evolve for better or for worse. I'm betting on the former.
We have four shows on the docket. We have a working website and our podcasts are up and running. We're gonna get better and better and soon, better than ever. Just give it time. And again, thanks to all of you who have chimed in. It's welcome here.
