Elton, Redford & me

So there I was, working for local Houston radio station, KFMK, when I found myself signed up to staff our booth at an industry trade show.   I was about 21 at the time and you could say I was a bit green to the ways of the world.  Oh I thought I was all that and a bag of chips, but now I can only look back and chuckle.   What I lacked in experience,  I made up for in moxie.

Taking a break from our booth, I noticed a line forming in front of competitor station K-Lite’s booth.  Wondering what all the fuss was about, I soon found out.

And there they were – two handsome look-a-likes posing with fans.  Finishing up my duties, I grabbed a spot in line with the others. Probably could have taken my KFMK name tag off, though.

The funny thing is, more than 27 years later, I still sing Elton John’s songs, Robert Redford still makes me swoon, and royal blue is still my favorite color.
