I was just about to fall asleep when I jolted wide wide awake with the realization:
I DIDN’T BLOG ABOUT THE MPR CALL-IN PROGRAM YET! I only mentioned it on my Facebook page! Argh! I’m dropping the ball! *wink*
So here’s the deal… Courtesy of the musicians’ Facebook page…
Minnesota Orchestra Principal Cellist and Negotiating Committee member, Tony Ross, and CEO Michael Henson will be guests on MPR’s The Daily Circuit tomorrow, Friday the 15th, at 11AM to discuss the lockout with host Tom Weber. Please tune in and call in with your questions!
You can listen online by tuning into MPRnews.org.
My readers are fantastic and lovely and so very knowledgeable, and I trust you’ll come up with some good questions. So please call in! Don’t be shy about doing so!! I only ask that you please keep things respectful, and remember that 99% of listeners are just tuning into this conflict for the first time. Make a good first impression with those people. The facts are all on our side. Let those facts speak for themselves. Don’t. Be. Rude. Thanks, all. xoxo
There is still some confusion as to whether this segment will be archived on MPR’s website. Even if it’s not, I’ll find a way to get a transcription for you after it’s over… I have my methods.
And on a closing note, thank you, Michael Henson, for agreeing to this. I mean that sincerely, and from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. Yes, I wish it would have happened months ago, and I get the vibe that it’s probably too little too late, but better late than never, you know? I really appreciate it. And I’m very interested in hearing what you have to say.
EDIT: By the way, for those of you who are shy on the phone… I just noticed that Orchestrate Excellence had a Facebook status update earlier…
Call in a question or comment to MPR’s Daily Circuit by calling 651-227-6000 or 800-242-2828. E-mail a question or comment during the show via the “Send Us a Question” box on mprnews.org. You can also join the conversation on Facebook by visiting The Daily Circuit online or tweet with #DailyCircuit.
I also noticed there’s already a page up about the story, with the ability to have Disqus comments. That’s here. I’m guessing that hosts might be keeping an eye on that throughout the show. So do with that info as you will…
“See” you tomorrow! Can’t wait to talk to everybody about what you think. I’ll probably be live-blogging my reactions on my Song of the Lark Facebook page; feel free to join in there.
OK. I think I’m finally going to sleep now. A blogger’s work is never done… ;)
