Best Story Ever!
I want to talk about your Best Stories Ever, but first a reminder that the Strombo show is on tonight.
Coming up on The Hour this week R & B legend John Legend will be on, as well as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. The interview with Henry Rollins should be interesting from what I've heard.
Do you watch the Best Stories Ever segment on The Hour? You can review them using the link at the top if you want to find your favourite. Have you thought of submitting a Best Story of your own? I will be taping a Best Story Ever of a colleague of mine. She has the best stories ever. I'll let you know how that turns out.
I was asking Paul McGrath, Associate Producer of The Hour, what kind of stories have they received so far from the public.
He tells me they have gotten about 100 stories so far. They range from touching, to bizarre, to raunchy...
A couple of the entries so far are great. They will be putting at least one of them on the air, but they are not sure when.
One challenge is that the viewers write in their stories instead of shoot them with a camera.
That is the reason for some rejection, another reason a video might be rejected is they may be self serving, IE: promoting a political cause or something.
Paul encourages you to submit your Best Story Ever on video.
All the info on how to do that is on www.cbc.ca/thehour/
If you don't want to do that you can just share it with us in the comment section if you like.
One more thing before I go... www.jian.ca is going to be sending out a newsletter soon about what Jian Ghomeshi is up to. People keep asking me, 'Hey Barbara, what's Jian up to?' If you want to know make sure you sign up to be on the mailing list soon and he will tell you all about it.
