Just a few random thoughts and pictures from the 4th of July. I've got half a second to spare and barring any (more) unfortunate technical mishap, all systems are go and we should soon be on the air.
Our start time was noon, but I showed up early to make sure everything was in order for my day in the hot seat on Thursday.
Yeah. I'm acting Chief again. This is the first time in the hot seat since we moved to the new station and I'm looking forward to a uneventful day.
Yeah, but that's tomorrow. Today there was only one major problem and--
Whoops, just stepped away for a minute to work on an audio IFB problem. It's been a long week, I'll explain IFB some other time.
The order of events on the biggest problem we had went something like this:
Bryan: I've got an interview to shoot. Everything good here?
Marvin (mellow): Yeah. We're all good.
Thirty minutes later.
Bryan: Marvin, what's wrong?
Marvin (controlled panic): I accidentally pulled a ribbon cable from the back of the switcher. We might be in trouble.
I'm thinking, hmmm. We?
Marvin was able to fix the problem with a work around, but I'll have to remember that look on his face.
These legs belong to a man who shall remain nameless. He knows who he is.
I need to get back to work now. The fireworks have started and everything is running fine. It should only be a matter of minutes before things start really going wrong.
Happy 4th and wish us luck.
