The Oklahoman will unveil its All-State High School Football team in a couple weeks. Each of the players taped a brief Q&A with Ryan Aber this afternoon.
So we had 20-25 high school kids in football jerseys, shuffling in and out of the 7th floor, while three ladies waited patiently in our green room for a 4 pm taping of Parties Extra with Helen Ford Wallace. To talk lobster.
Kanela Huff, Pam Smith and Rawsie Boyles are here today to tell us about Pam’s birthday party which is always at Kanela’s home and Rawsie cooks the very fabulous lobsters which are served with all the condiments.
And the ladies did talk lobsters and parties. Helen does a great job moderating these interviews. She brings the spirit and the enthusiasm into each interview. And she’s prepared.
I think the audience can always tell when a host is prepared and if a host is interested in the interview. Helen is always prepared and interested.
And early. Which was a bit unfortunate today since we ran long with the football interviews.
So she got to watch the Jenks and Union football players talk about their seasons and where they plan to play next year. Ryan did a great job with each interview, rattling off their stats and asking specific questions to each player. All while Helen and her girls “partied” (or reminisced) in the green room. I hope the water was tasty.
