Field trip! Earlier this week, Kirsten Kapur and I hit the road to Northampton MA to record a Drop Dead Easy Knits interview with Kathy Elkins on Ready, Set, Knit - the WEBS weekly talk show/ podcast.
You can hear it here !Turns out it was the 10th Anniversary show. What an honor! This is the "after" shot inside the recording studio at WHMP. I am a little bit -
Kathy Elkins is such a pro, and fun to talk to, she put us both at ease. The engineer made our voices sound so smoooooooth. Kathy totally "gets" our book, it was a joy to chat about the projects and the process with her.
Followed, of course, by a little shopping excursion to her famous store. But that is another post!
PS apologies for the quality of these photos. No real cameras --only the phone and the dim/contrasty radio station studio lights. Too bad our third partner in knitting book crime, Mary Lou Egan wasn't along.
*AV Club- so this is no longer a thing, since classrooms all have TV screens and if a class watches a movie, it's on a dvd or streaming, and everyone knows how to access it. But before that...AV Club was a group of kids who got trained to run the film projectors, filmstrips and troubleshoot the overhead projectors, and had a vest and belt with a ton of keys to get the equipment from a closet and roll it on a cart into the classroom.
The namesake-The AV Club website reports on pop culture, it is worth a visit for entertainment. Just thought I'd throw that in.
