Return of the First Team

As most of our readers know, I had a radio show for around six years. My radio partner Brian Ward and I were part of the Northern Alliance Radio Network on AM 1280 the Patriot in the Twin Cities. We didn’t make any money at it, but it was a lot of fun and our web site connections enabled us to book a lot of great guests. In addition to the local radio audience, our show was streamed on the internet, and we got phone calls from listeners as far away as China and France.
Somewhat weirdly, our show was canceled a month or two ago by the radio station, which sold our two-hour block to an investment guy for an infomercial. He left for another station not long thereafter, and last I knew the time was being filled with vitamin advertisements. I’m estimating the audience for the vitamin infomercial at somewhere between 15 and 20. Not ratings points, people.
But Brian and I aren’t sulking; au contraire, we are exploring our options with another radio station–one that has much higher ratings than the Patriot–and–now comes the point of this post–we have signed up with Ricochet to do regular podcasts. On Saturday, we recorded our first Ricochet podcast with the able assistance of Scott Immergut. Ricochet announces our new relationship here; you can listen to the first edition here. The podcasts should be available for subscription on iTunes in a day or two. We hope you enjoy the show!
