I Never Thought She’d Sound Like THAT

Every now and then, I am faced with something that has never happened before. Just such an experience presented itself Friday.

I was interviewed by Eskimo Bob.

Actually, that little sentence encompasses a number of things that have never happened to me before.

* I’ve never spoken to anyone while they were in Alaska.

* I’ve never, to my knowledge, spoken to anyone with even an ounce of Eskimo blood in them.

* I’ve never been interviewed for a radio show.

Well, that’s not entirely true. I was interviewed for a radio show -- I just didn't speak. The interview was based on the fact that I was the bari sax player in a pretty hot jazz band. Unfortunately, I was 18 at the time and entirely tongue-tied.

Apparently nodding to questions is a no-no on radio. I’m sure the listening audience wondered why the DJ kept asking the mute girl questions.

It was cruel, really.

I’ve learned some things, however, since then, as I am wont to do, and gave ol’ Bob what I’m sure amounts, in hindsight, to an earful.

It airs at 7:00 p.m. Sunday night, Minneapolis time. That’s seven hours post Greenwich Mean Time, if that helps you. I do hope you check it out, if only to support Bob and see how badly I stick my foot in it.

Me? Stick my foot in my mouth?

Nah.

Bob had me on as your "stand in" last week.

Like when Johnny Carson's guest would cancel at the last minute and he would call some D lister he knew was just sitting around watching the cobwebs wiggle.
