Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning

"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

SmAlbany goes big time!

The voice of SmAlbany: Inexplicably, I was solicited yesterday to appear as a guest panelist on WAMC's Weekly Rundown show, hosted by Mary Darcy and Greg Dahlmann. I'm not sure I have either the pipes or the nerve for radio, but what the heck. I've never listened to the show, but it was decribed to me as "smart, but witty." Well, that's what we aim for here at Oh, SmAlbany!, so I guess I'm suitable, in theory. Maybe they'll let me rant about Geisel, or the bars downtown.

Actually, who am I kidding? This is really right in my wheelhouse:

Pontificating about semi-important local topics? Check.
Using a production medium that artificially increases your legitimacy? Check.
Keeping it short so you seem smarter than you actually are? Check.

Ok, I'm excited.

The show will air Friday night at 9pm. Yeah, not exactly your "afternoon drive" slot, but I'll take it. I'll put up a link to the podcast after it's available.

Am I really becoming a C-list D-list Albany celebrity?
