My first radio interview

I was recently interviewed by Stephen Valentino of SYR Radio, and it will be broadcast tomorrow, Saturday, at 3 pm Pacific (6 pm Eastern), on cable stations coast-to-coast. To see if your local cable network carries CRN Digital Talk Radio, click here.

Meanwhile, the interview is available online. So if want to give a listen, click below for the MP3 downloads (the interview is in two segments).
Segment One
Segment Two

Stephen was terrific--very animated, enthusiastic and professional. He made sure to repeat the name of my book several times and give out my website on both segments. And what a voice! In addition to being a radio host he's an opera singer, and you can really hear all that training. We won't talk about how tinny and nasal I sound compared to him. But I think I did okay. I did, however, have one major brain fart. In segment two I said that I got the idea for the book in 2004. 2004? What was I thinking! I started writing the book in 2000. Oh well. I guess there are worse mistakes. Certainly, it's not going to keep anyone from buying the book, right? The next time I do an interview, though, I'll try not to have a cerebral hemorrhage in the middle of it.

You sounded great, Ellen, even with that 2004/2000 brain fart! I loved he way he said the title of your book every other minute.

Great interview! You sound a lot like Carolyn Kennedy -- a good thing!

Stephanie said...

Okay, I'm listening now and I really want an alcoholic drink from the introduction. But, you sound terrific!
