Jim Gilchrist phoned in yesterday and stayed for three very interesting segments. Throughout his campaign for Congress, the candidate has been able to use the comfy confines of local talk radio cheerleaders, Los Angeles talkers John and Ken, to repeatedly be asked one question in a thousand forms: What about illegal immigration? On yesterday’s show, Jim had to respond to a few questions outside his comfort zone. Radioblogger has the transcript and audio available, and I’ll replay the segments today from 4:30 to 5:00 pacific.
In fact, this was one of the strangest weeks of interviews in my 16 years in broadcast journalism. I’ll also be rebroadcasting in the same hour, my interview with the USCD student pornographer and with the Fort Worth columnist who thinks most of Bush’s “short list” for SCOTUS would be as comfortable under white robes as black robes.
Sort of the triple play of “out there” interviews.
