CBS and Miss America
I had the great honor to appear with Steve Bartlestein on his morning CBS news program. Steve had come to the show a couple of weeks ago and just loved it... hence me being on his show. What a great guy. So generous, as was the entire staff there at the news room.
I arrived at around 7am, did a little sound check at 7:30 (ugh) did some pre-record at 8:30 (a little less ugh) and then went on air LIVE with him around 9:45am. Steve even got me a bagel.
I don't know if any of you caught the show but here's a link to the feed. I sang part of "I Can't Recall" live on air.
Boy is it tough to sing that early in the morning. Dana and I didn't really get to sleep until around 3:30 the night before because the baby was a bit fidgety... but I gotta do what I gotta do. I think I squeaked it out.
Anyway... many, many thanks to Steve Bartlestein and the entire staff at CBS. If you haven't done so, you guys should tune into him on Saturday mornings. He's fantastic.
OK... then... I had two shows that same day.
Talk about tired.
It didn't matter though. The matinee audience was packed and the energy lifted me out of my fog and propelled me onward. There was a group of friends, from my high school days, at the show that afternoon and some some other great friends from my undergrad days as well. Always nice to have friends in the house.
The evening performance was great too. Our current Miss America, Kristen Haglund, was in attendance. She came backstage afterward to meet the cast. She's a very sweet person and loved the show. Her reign ends at the end of the year so here's wishing her the best in all future endeavors.
Off to the matinee.
It's cold today so layer, layer, layer!
