According to WDIY (FM 88.1)'s webpage, "Lehigh Valley Discourse" is a "highly acclaimed local affairs show" that examines "the diversity that is the Lehigh Valley." That's about to change.
For reasons that completely elude me, I'll be a guest on the show, which airs between 6 and 7 PM this Thursday. You can blame CACLV's Alan Jennings, who probably thinks that bottom-feeding bloggers like me need some lovin', too.
Now I was trained in the ways of talk radio by none other than the Northampton County Bulldog, Ron Angle, who used to have a talk show of his own before he was canned by Not-So-Jolly Joe Timmer. But that's AM. Aside from the dudes on Car Talk, I really don't fit in with the foo foos who grace that station, unless they like fart jokes.
LVI's Jonathan Geeting, however, should feel right at home. Although Geeting attends no meetings locally, he reads 500,000 posts a day, and is so good at preaching he should trade in his blogger's pen for a Roman collar. Jennings invited him, too. Bastard. Geeting spends a lot of his time claiming I'm full of shit. Regular readers of this blog already know that.
The subject of the show is bottom-feeding bloggers. I think we need them, if only to make reporters look more respectable. Jennings is scrambling to find two government officials willing to share the air waves with us.
Good luck with that, Alan. I'll bring a few Right-to-Know forms.
I'll wear a beret.
