Did a live radio interview on WEBO yesterday morning around 8:15am to promote the Ti-Ahwaga showing of The General on Fri 3/16 (tom'w). The station (1330AM) is a sponsor of the film series, and will be re-running parts of the interview throughout the day or two leading up to the show. Here it is, for your listening pleasure:
Hope to have pics (as well as a report) after the show.
