Yesterday marked the debut remote broadcast for the Northern Alliance Radio Network at the Estates of Diamond Bluff, just south of Prescott, Wisconsin. The affair was a rousing success, although I had my doubts about how it might turn out when my wife and I encountered what could have been a bad omen on the way to the event.
But everything went as planned and a good time was had by all. The development features spectacular views of the Mississippi River and the setting was idyllic.
Broadcasting in the great outdoors before a live audience was a lot of fun. You can see the Big Trunk (right) and Hindrocket (middle) from Powerline enjoying themselves as King from SCSU Scholars holds forth on why the Twins are a much superior team to the Red Sox.
Promotions director, babysitter for the "talent", and flipper of frankfurters? Renaissance man, Jay Larson gets to "verk".
Mitch enjoys the handiwork of Jay's efforts. And you thought only Al Franken ate his lunch on the air.
And of course what event would be complete without that rascally Ralphie? Here he hooks up with Taxpayers League honcho David Strom and his wife. The Taxpayers League is responsible for our internet streaming and we owe David and his group a big thanks for making that happen.
