Two items-for-listening this morning: First up, a by-request; then, Schutze combs through his recordings archives and discovers he's sitting on a JWP best-of.
Here, to begin, is a segment that aired on The Ticket Friday morning -- one week after Craig Miller and George Dunham acknowledged that they knew so little about the most powerful person in Dallas they weren't quite sure what she did ... or how to pronounce her name. I hosted a few segments at week's end, filling in for the vacationing Gordon Keith, and used the final one to introduce Suhm to the boys, who asked about the city budget ... and John Wiley Price and keys to the city. Several Friends have asked for a replay, and KTicket's Jeremy Moran was kind enough to send it along.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
