On the Final Bob Edwards Weekend/Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: Radio Today — Charlie Summers @ 9:32 pm

I have been asked a few questions by friends and folks who read this blog (and I thank you both), so let me take a shot at answering…

  • Re: “Was it really you?” Yeah, really was. It occurred to me later I should have asked Executive Producer Chad Campbell to take a photo during the interview, but truthfully the trip down to the studios was for work, so I didn’t think about it until later. Hard to believe, though…and the studio equipment made me sound so much better than I really do, I’d love to stick the entire thing in my pocket and carry it around with me everywhere I go.

  • Re: “Biggest Fan;” I am a pretty hefty guy, but short, so I may not be the largest. As to the rest of it, well…”Biggest fan”…”Cyberstalker”…it’s kinda a fine line.

  • Re: “What was it like?” Interviewing Bob was one of the most exhilarating and terrifying things I have ever done - imagine going into someone else’s house and attempting to do what they do best. Bob was extraordinarily kind, never hung me out with a one-word answer, leaned me into questions I should have asked but almost didn’t, and was generally awesome. Listening to my voice you’d never know how badly my legs were shaking under the studio desk. And yet listening to him talk to me wasn’t all that much different than listening to the show…every time I turn the thing on, Bob talks just to me. Just as he talks only to you when you listen. That’s how radio makes everything so personal and intimate, and why we love the medium so much. (Ok, I got to actually see him across the desk while he talked to me that day.)

    After listening to the first cut of my version of the interview, I realized I ended up getting one of the interviews Bob himself likes best. If you listen to the version on SummersTime (longer and not as expertly produced), Bob mentions he loves guests who do impressions, like Kevin Spacey or Peter Bogdanovich…then listen to Bob’s impression of Andy Warhol.

  • Re: “Is there more?” Of course. Not everything makes it into a broadcast. Some things are cut for time. Other things because the interviewer screwed up (innocent look). Other things because…well, I asked something that was just a curiosity point for me, so I’m not sharing. Promise someone something is off the record, and it is.

    That said, the version on SummersTime is longer and contains additional questions and answers, as well as some clips from Bob’s shows with some of his (and my) favorite guests. It premiers on the Radio Once More channel at Monday night September 28th at 6:00 PM Eastern, 3:00 PM Pacific, with replays throughout the week. Hit the SummersTime or the RadioOnceMore website for showtimes.

Ok, think that’s it. If you have additional questions for me, drop me a note or write ‘em in the comments section and if I get the time I’ll expand this post. If you have suggestions for questions I should have asked Bob and didn’t, don’t bother - I’ve already got a few hundred I should have thought of before…
