Just when we thought we were finally getting a break..along comes The Savage One.
Because EcoTalk is produced independently in the green Bay Area, far from the not-so-green Apple, we have been renting space at a private studio in SF to record the shows at considerable personal expense.
Recently, The Quake (AAR's SF affiliate), was nice enough to find us a free hour in one of the Clear Channel Studios housed in the same building as KQKE, which like many AA affiliates, is owned by CC.
Several weeks ago we finally got to start taping the show (for free) at KQKE - just as we were settling in after two shows, and about to tape the third (literally as I was walking into the building), I got a call on my cell phone from our contact at KQKE - informing us, politely and with regrets - that the studio would not be available that day and for the foreseable future because Michael Savage decided he wanted to have that studio for himself.
Oh really??? After my producer and I sped across town to keep our taping time, once again back in the rented studio, we had a moment to reflect. Ah, the indignity of being bumped by the right wing hate-monger while we're just trying to keep our costs downto bring a little eco-enlightenment to America each week. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
May he be burned by global warming.
