A face for radio: Lt. Smash will be on KPBS's "These Days" show this morning at 10 a.m. talking about blogs and politics. I know this because I spent about 35 minutes on the phone Wednesday afternoon talking to one of the show's producers -- and was then told they didn't want me.
If I had feelings, they'd be hurt by things like this.
But seriously, it was an interesting conversation and the only disappointing part of it was that apparently the show's host is very comfortable talking with Smash, and so doesn't want to expand his horizons. It reminds me of the little kid who doesn't want to try anything new -- franks and beans are just fine, thank you. At least, that was part of the explanation I was given.
To be completely honest, the only reason they called me in the first place was that Smash had given them my name. (Thanks, Smash.)
Anyway, call in and talk to Smash.
