Post 1910 - Getting There

I spent my lunch hour today, and about 2 hours tonight, transcribing a blog interview I conducted more than 3 months ago.  I am sorry to my client that it has taken this long.  I have quite a ways to go yet.  I will get there.

Some of you wonder why some of these posts are so brief.  It is often because of the circumstances described in the previous paragraph.   When I spend 2-3 hours a day typing my little paws off, it is hard to find the time to turn around and write some kind of decent blog post.

I am getting there, though, with the interview.  It is taking nice shape.  I hope to be finished it within the next 10 days or so.  One audio file is 45 minutes long.  It will take me a couple of days to make my way through that one.

After that, I have an interview with Julia Kirkey to crack open and transcribe.  Katey Day and I talked for 90 minutes or so a few months ago and we barely scratched the surface of her fascinating life.   She's met so many interesting people like Mick and Keith of the Rolling Stones.  She will work at Lite 92.9 until she goes off the air on Friday, and then hightail it do a show in Moncton that evening, going on stage at 10 or so.  I don't know how she maintains that kind of schedule.  I'm looking forward to sharing the interview with you.

Haven't seen Patricia for a couple of hours while I have been down here typing my finger tips off.  Guess I'll go see how the old gal is doing.

See you tomorrow.
