My handlers wanted me to call it “The Laurie Kendrick Show”, but that sounded so borscht belty. Like my feature guests would be Morey Amsterday and Al Martino. . And I didn’t want anyone calling me a narcissist becuase of the use of my name as part of of the title, so after a bit of contemplation, prayer and flower pettle plucking, three cold Modelos and a quarter Xanax found on the floor, “Conversations With Laurie Kendrick “was born.
Simple, plain, unpretentious.
It replaces Supernatural Saturday Night. We had nine great shows but it’s lifespan was only worth nine shows. Martha and I did the exact show ten years ago, it was a freeform party, a circus, where people came up,to hang around. It was chaos but fun chao. Some of the magic was gone from this time out and the noted thinkers ar RFC Media said shut that girl up and give her her damn own show.
And the rest is, as they say, will be of history.
Subject matter you ask? Well, we just might have a former African American maid on one day, old enough to have fought along side with Dr. King for civil rights,yet young enough to compare and contrast the difference onece President’s Johnson’s Great Society became a reality. I’d like to talk to a child about his hopes, and dreams and fears for his future. I want to talk to a septic tank cleaner, then then the next week,how a prominent housewife uses aspects of voodoo in her everyday lie. Of course, there will be psychics, and Wiccans and cryptozoologists and then a rap singer then a real working cowboy, followed by a fishing guide then maybe a one hour sit down down with a coroner.
I want the topics to be all the place. Varied and interesting, inspiring, funny, gut wrenching….above all entertaining and educational.
We’ll record my first show in about a week and a hhalf all from my well appointed deer blind in the Texas Hill Country. And of course I’ll be in Houston from from time, but mostly from where Cedar can choke a horse. As for spexific run dates and times, you’ll all about that here first. And yes, yes the show will be broadcast on RadioBrave.com and TuneIn.com
Conversations with Laurie Kendrick.
I can already smell a Peabody!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so….well ….better suited for the blasts or crystal plate for any future broadcast awards.
