My thanks to the good folks at NPR's "Wait, Wait...don't tell me" radio program for including me in their taping this week at Carnegie Hall. The broadcast airs this coming weekend. Anything you hear that doesn't sound like something I'd say...simply isn't me. They have people on the staff who can mimic voices, and you know what these media types can do with editing. We had a lot of fun. Growing up as a kid in Jersey, I certainly never thought I'd stand at center stage and look out at the audience at Carnegie Hall. What an extraordinary experience. And (as they say in show business) what a great crowd -- this was like the Super Bowl of public radio last night.
We'll update you on goings-on with the broadcast on Monday. In the meantime, have a good evening, and we'll see you Monday night.
