I was so excited and honored to be asked to sit and talk with the legendary Gene Levanchy for today's Boston 25 News Zip Trip to Weymouth. And I'm telling you, it was something of a festival! Free samples from awesome vendors, characters in costumes, kids, games, a bouncy house, an ice cream stand and of course their live broadcast under the big top with all of the equipment and the lights...a virtual sensory overload! But wow, really cool.
I was up late last night trying to prepare for my 2 min segment, figured I'd stick with what I knew and I'd talk concerts (definitely my wheel house), plus we were going to be giving away tickets to see Weezer and The Pixies at the Xfinity Center so that all tied in nicely...but Gene must've read my bio here because the same thing that seems to catch everyone's attention caught his. My close encounter with Willie Nelson. So there I am forced to explain what happened years ago after an interview I had with Willie on live television. Now mind you, this was long before the #MeToo movement. Anyway check out the whole thing below from Boston 25's website.
And thanks AGAIN to Gene, the Boston 25 news team and to Sara Underwood who's husband Mike Felger of the Sports Hub, will be joining us at the Beasley studios in a couple short weeks. It just goes to show, us media types are just all one little intertwined family.
Hope to do it again, and maybe we can talk about what happened when I interviewed Vance Joy (eye-roll). 😉
