Michael forgot about creating that post until the Producer at TheTakeAway.org with WNYC called on Black Wednesday asking for an interview on Black Friday. Michael quickly seized the opportunity even though it meant rolling out of bed at 4:30 am on Friday, hey that was sleeping in compared to some Black Friday shoppers and radio show hosts!
This is an edited copy of the email Michael received from the show producer:
Thank you so much for talking with me today. As we discussed, we’re thrilled that you can join us Friday at 6:00am EST on The Takeaway.
We will give you a call to check your line at 5:45am EST. The interview will begin at 6:00am EST. You will be joined by New York Times finance and Wall Street reporter Louise Story, as well as by a former Black Friday shopper who won’t be shopping this year.
If you has any questions in the morning, you can call our Senior Editor and Line Producer Rupert Allman -We will call you on skype using your skype login michaelbutlersr. This will be a LIVE interview with our hosts John Hockenberry and Celeste Headlee.
