Foster on WFHB’s ‘Local Live’
On January 19, 2011, I had the opportunity to appear on Local Live, a weekly 30-minute radio show on Bloomington, Indiana’s WFHB Community Radio. It was originally booked to be a spot featuring myself and Frank Jones, the other half of our musical duo, Foster Jones. My esteemed partner, in the meantime, spaced out the date and had booked himself a trip to the west coast. For this annoying but not unpredictable failure of focus, whatever I’m paying him, I’m gonna cut it in half. Let’s see, that comes out to about… nada, actually. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts.
In any event, I arranged to do the show solo, and posted the live stream link on my Facebook page. The host, Abe Morris (an affable fellow) soon set me at ease in the WFHB studio. When we went live, he introduced me, I played a tune, we talked about guitars, I played some more, then we went into what I’m doing musically these days, then I played some more… the usual thing one might do on a community radio show dedicated to local musicians. The half-hour skipped along quickly, and the next thing I knew I was on my way back home.
Below is a stream of the show.
Apparently I did okay, as I received favorable reactions from my FB family and friends, and Abe invited me to come back on the show at my earliest convenience. Maybe next time Frank will actually think to glance at his calendar. We’ll see.
