Part II of Joy Ike’s appearance on the Get Up and Go Show – “Give Me Truth”
EDDIE DANIELS – One of the fun things about my job is the wide variety of people and places I get to experience as WJTL connects with our community. Yesterday Lisa and I went to the Heritage Center Museum in downtown Lancaster to find out more about their fun summer camps coming soon.
Lisa was armed with her audio recorder to gather material for an upcoming Kids Cookie Break program. I of course came with the video camera. We were able to get nearly an hour’s worth of footage. Even though the videos generally only run about 3 minutes in length, I’d much rather have too much to edit than too little. If nothing else, we’ll be able to break the footage down into a series of mini-videos instead of one epic 8-minute behemoth.
The video below introduces you to Jamie Bollinger from the museum. We also got a lot of really cool footage and info from the guy running the printing press and I’m looking forward into making that video its own segment.
Enjoy this sneak peek into what’s going on just around the corner!

EDDIE DANIELS – So, Mother’s Day 2010 has come and gone. My Mom lives in North Carolina. I called her yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to find out the flowers I sent her lasted longer than the ones sent by my brother and sister. Bonus points for me! :) What about you? What did you do to celebrate? Any particular highlights? Comment below!

EDDIE DANIELS – Yesterday I presented you with Exhibit A in the case of Fred v. Love of Coffee.
Ladies and gentlemen of the court, I now present Exhibit B. I think you’ll agree the evidence is overwhelming: Fred likes coffee, and it makes for great video.

EDDIE DANIELS – This afternoon Lisa and I were in Hershey for the annual PAB (Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters) Awards. WJTL was up for (and received) two awards: Outstanding Website (and yes, this was before our big website overhaul!) and Outstanding Program Designed for Kids.
I was happy to accept the award for our website and Lisa accepted on behalf of the Kids Cookie Break! It was fun meeting other people from a variety of TV and radio stations from across the state! Here’s a quick video of Lisa and I accepting the awards for WJTL. Is it just me, or do I look scared to death? Just for the record, I wasn’t…I think I was more concerned about whether or not there would be coffee refills.

EDDIE DANIELS – This morning I made coffee.
That’s nothing new, as I’m usually in the office around the same time The Get Up and Go Show is under way, and I usually start the first pot of coffee around 6:20.
I think this morning’s coffee was extra-good, as Fred felt inspired to draw a picture for me to express his coffee gratitude. WJTL has a contest going on right now where you get to draw a picture of your favorite Fred song. Phredd’s picture not only incorporates his love for coffee, but also ties in three (count ’em, THREE!) of his songs.
May I present to the court, Exhibit A:
Exhibit B can be viewed here.Eddie Daniels, Production Guy
EDDIE DANIELS – When did WJTL first appear on the scene? Was Fred always on the morning show? When did the station start broadcasting 24 hours a day? What is WJTL involved in?
All of these questions (and more!) are answered in this informative video.Eddie Daniels, Production Guy
EDDIE DANIELS – Not only did Sanctus Real’s Matt Hammitt perform “Lead Me” live on the radio, he also gave us a little insight in the song and the meaning behind it. As promised in yesterday’s post, here’s the video:Eddie Daniels, Production Guy
Sanctus Real was in town a couple of weeks ago and the guys were scheduled to come in for an interview with Kristi Leigh. As sometimes happens, they were having trouble with their sound check and some of the guys had to stay at the venue while lead singer Matt Hammitt came in to the station to hang for a bit.
Matt’s been in for an interview with us a few times and I think he’s pretty relaxed around us now; he’s always really nice and friendly. Kristi conducted a great interview and he also performed this song live on the air. Enjoy!
There are two times during the year when it really hits me how fortunate I am to have an office with a view. One of them is in the winter when the snow is falling and the other is in the springtime, when the snow is pink.
