Default I'm on TV this Wednesday!


This was totally last minute! Was contacted to do an interview earlier
today with a reporter for local Los Angeles/Orange County Television
station KDOC. The Show is called "Day Break OC", and airs M-F from
6am-8am. It's kinda like Regis & Kelly format. The coverage area is 5.4
Million homes!

The on-air reporter said he wanted to do a story on the "UniGeezer"
angle and also touch on my piano tuning business. So I postponed tuning
appointments at the last minute andso I could drive out to Orange
county this morning to do the interview, which took place at his actual
home where I did a "mock" tuning on his piano. Then we went on location
to a local trail for some action shots and hiker/biker comments; we got
some good ones!

Anyway, should be a fun segment but can only be viewed by people in Los
Angeles and Orange County areas. Check you local listings for what
channel it's on in your area, depending on whether you have cable, sat,
or regular TV, which is Channel 56 in that case.

They'll be running promos for it tomorrow (4/15/08) during the day like
every hour. _For_those_of_you_not_in_the_coverage_area_, they will be
streaming the segment on either youtube or google, and when it's up
I'll post the link. Btw, I mentioned Jamey's "Uniproshop.com" so
hopefully the anchors will mention it, maybe at the end of the segment.

I should also mention that, unknown to me (and the reporter who
interviewed me) this is the *same* station that was supposed to do a
story on Adam Brody's OC uni club, and their interview was supposed to
be tomorrow!

But my reporter never said a world about it, and it turns out that
another reporter, apparently new to the station, had set things up with
Adam, but now due to the mix-up, their interview will take place next
week.

I had just heard from Adam a couple days ago that he and his club were
going to be interviewed for a TV show, but I had no clue that it was
with the *same* station!!! It might have been fun to combine both of
our stories and make one whole segment out of it.

Oh well, hopefully, this will work out better so they can get more time
in their interviews. Hey, two uni features are better thn one!

Yeah the reporter told me he would upload the actual segment as it will
appear on Wednesday, to youtube; I'll post a link when it's up.

50/50, lol. I've been watching the station for 20 years since they run a
lot of my favorite classic stuff, including Get smart and twilight
zone.

I was also hoping that they would also mix in my piano tuning business
(it's been slow lately) into the story. I told the reporter about the
OC club and other riders in the area, but apparently the segment would
be too short.

Good news is, the OC club will have their own news segment filmed next
week! Also, I kept emphasizing Jameys Uniproshop.com, and so it looks
like they will do a promo for it in the segment!

Well If I lived by you, you'd be the only person tuning my piano.

No problem Jamey, I just wanted to help your new biz as much as possible
and thought this would be a good way to get the word out! It's not
everyday that you can get free advertising on TV, so I really pushed
for it. Ulitmately it will be up to the station manager, but my fingers
are crossed!
