Well, it seems at least one tradition is on a “pause” for the foreseeable future.
AM1280 and the NARN won’t be out at the State Fair this year.
Fifteen straight summers, the NARN guys and I worked out at the Fair. The station took a different route this year.
Which on the one hand is fine – no need to add “getting to the fairgrounds” to all the other show prep stuff.
On the other hand, it means I lose the big benefit of being with the station at the Fair: having an air-conditioned room with a fridge full of water to retreat to when the crowds get to be too much. That, along with getting to meet the audience face to face, was one of the highlights of whole “show at the Fair” experience.
I’ll have to come up with some other side hustle that offers that…
