We’re putting a bow on another 52 episodes of the Rusty Satellite Show with a look back, and a peak ahead. Before we let 2017 go for good, Caroline Knop and I talk about some of the memorable guests we’ve had on the show, from Mayor Greg Fischer to Santa Pat Meehan, from extraordinary entrepreneurs to folks with really important jobs, from actors and musicians to record-setters in athletics.
But first, there are a couple of pretty big ballgames coming up this weekend, so I invited U of L superfan Gabe Duverge into the studio to get the lowdown. Friday at 1, it’s the Battle of the Bluegrass in Lexington, as the Cards and Cats renew their heated rivalry. And on Saturday, we’ll be glued to the TV broadcast of the Cards’ TaxSlayer Bowl contest against Mississippi State in Jacksonville. Listen in for Gabe’s take on both games.
For those who don’t know Caroline, she’s a PR maven who is the Rusty Satellite Show’s chief guest finder. She is on the front line of the many of the city’s biggest events, always finding ways to get her clients mentioned in local media. And she’s a lot of fun, too.
Caroline takes us into 2018, previewing a few events including the Fifth Annual Tailspin Festival coming in February.
It was a great 2017 here at the Rusty Satellite Show, and I’m looking forward to meeting some of the city’s most interesting people again in 2018. Happy New Year!
