It took just 34 minutes from the time I parked the car.
My trip to KLRU in Austin to appear on Central Texas Gardener and promote our upcoming San Antonio Open Days Tour for the Garden Conservancy went so quickly. My first time in a TV studio so I was more than a bit unsure. Meeting Tom Spencer and working with producer Linda Lehmusvirta was awesome and the crew was great to work with.
Put on the mic, a few other prep items were checked and then Tom and I talked about the six gardens featured on the October 14th tour. The amazing thing is that when we were wrapping up and Linda reappeared to say the interview went well, I thought "wait, those cameras were on!?"
They are that good at what they do.
I truly appreciated the opportunity to promote the tour, to get the word out and help raise money for the Garden Conservancy and for Gardening Volunteers of South Texas to continue our work.
Special thanks to my friend Linda Peterson for her notes of encouragement which made me smile this week. Linda's garden will be on the tour and I can't wait for everyone to see it.
Thanks to my friends at Central Texas Gardener for an experience I will never forget.
I'd already been looking forward to the tour, and now I'm looking forward to seeing you talk about the tour! Congrats on your CTG appearance. Linda and Tom do make it seem easy, don't they?ReplyDelete
They are total pros and at the same time very thoughtful and easy to work with.Delete
That's so cool! I'll have to watch when it gets put online. :)ReplyDelete
September 30 broadcast and a few days earlier online!Delete
Oh! Look at you on TV. Well, I will certainly be watching.ReplyDelete
On the "telly", should be interesting.Delete
That's so great, Shirley! I'll make a point of looking for the interview on YouTube. Do you know when it will play?ReplyDelete
September 30 and a few days earlier on PBS, KLRU, and YouTube.Delete
For some reason I can't reply to each of you right now. The segment will air Sept. 30.ReplyDelete
This was beyond thrilling for us at CTG! We all were so impressed and I thank you for all your hard work to promote (and organize) this remarkable tour. XXOO LindaReplyDelete
Thank you for your confidence that this would work and convincing me I should give it a shot.Delete
You go, Shirley!ReplyDelete
You perfectly described my experience on CTG 5 years ago...I'm only that comfortable in my own house! Yet another reason that show is so relevant, no matter all the great gardens in your part of the world.ReplyDelete
I will try to watch your episode online in a month.
Has it been five years. You were in mind when I mentally went through a list of friends who have been on the show. Pam, Diana, David, Jenny P. and so on.Delete
You watch first and let me know how it is!
Shirley Fox, media personality. Can't wait to watch online!ReplyDelete
Should be fun to see!Delete
