Radio Legend Bob Dumas And His Bob's Buddies CEO Wife Lu -Episode 1 (1/29/20)
It was an honor to have Raleigh radio legend Bob Dumas and his wife Lu as my very first LIVE Online guests! I learned more about their Bob And Lu Show podcast, Bob's post-radio life honey-do list, his new car Bruce, their "mulch problem", Bob's lack of interest in getting back into radio and more. Yes, I had technical issues first show out, which I have since fixed except for the feed cutting off ten minutes early. Ignore the audio echo in the beginning.
I'll never forget having my night show featured as the top story in the News And Observer back in May of 2005 for taking my show interactive in-studio, communicating with the audience that was listening. The paper quoted me saying,
"It's a way for us to get closer to our audience."
Almost 15 years later I'm "remaking" what I did back then, except it's now visual, too!
People could watch it LIVE weekly (or the replay on demand) here on my site. I created the ability to interact with people comments LIVE from my kitchen, and did weekly check-ins at the start of the show with a different viewer every show.
The future is LIVE video on social media and I'm just "fishing where the fish are".
