Metroblogger On The Radio

This weekend, I’m hosting Creative Loafing’s radio program, Air Loaf. The show airs from 10AM to Noon on 1690AM Air Atlanta.

The first hour focuses on Atlanta politics. We’re gonna have Atlanta Councilwoman Joyce Sheperd and her opponent, Derrick Boazman in the studio talking about the December 6 runoff election for the District 12 City Council seat. Doug Monroe from Creative Loafing will be in the studio for that. I realize that it’s of limited interest to people outside of District 12, but it’s an important city race and I’m very proud that we’re devoting more time to it than any other news outlet in the city. The AJC didn’t even bother running endorsements this year.

In the second hour, things get a little sillier. Creative Loafing’s Curt Holman and Thomas Bell will be talking about Atlanta holiday theater. Lotsa Nutcracker talk! In the last half-hour, I’ll be joined by Chick and Boozy from Dad’s Garage who’ll be talking about their new Christmas variety show, Chick & Boozy Present: It’s a Hoo-Haw Christmas.

And for those of you who are fans of the My ‘Lanta podcasts, there’s also gonna be some Best of Atlanta Craigslist somewhere in that second hour.

Incidentally, we’ve recorded some new episodes of My ‘Lanta, but I’ve been too busy to edit and post them. Maybe I’ll have some time on Thanksgiving.

    I’ve heard a couple of the commercials already. Is this a call-in-type thing or no?

    All I can say to a radio show addressing Atlanta and Atlanta politics is “fucking amen.”

    We can’t take any callers because we’re not live yet. In fact, I taped it on Monday and Tuesday.

    Normally I’m not the host. Normally CL’s editor Ken Edelstein is the host and I’m just there as the silly sidekick. Ken’s too busy this week, however, so I volunteered to fill-in.

    It will definitely sound a little rough around the edges, so keep that word “volunteered” in mind. It’s not something I have any experience at, nor was I paid for it.
