Done and done. That’s all she wrote. We just finished a Black Friday remote broadcast. Mornings at Home was live from Westwood Mall in Jackson, MI — and on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. We gave away tote bags and other paraphernalia with the hopes that we would (1) connect with current listeners and (2) frighten mall security. Both were accomplished with great success.
The whole thing was fun and strange, much like riding on a Ferris wheel that might fall apart. It kept me up at night, not because I was nervous but because I was excited — and didn’t wanna miss the good times. Our remote broadcast was based on a wireless Sprint card, carrying huge amounts of compressed audio back and forth over Ethernet. I still can’t believe it worked.
The next remote is at Jackson Nite-Lights on Thursday — should be good times in that a couple of goons will be staring in people’s car windows, much like a haunted hose at Christmas. What a mix.
