Go listen to blairgarner ’s interview with pete.buttigieg at the link in blairgarner ’s bio. His network wouldn’t let him air the interview on his show, but he was able to post it on his Soundcloud.
Repost blairgarner with get_repost
I'm not a political guy. My radio show isn't political, nor does it aspire to be.
I'm just the host of a syndicated Country music program who loves his country - both the amazing land in which we live, and the outstanding music from today's Country artists.
The phrase, "I love my Country" is one that I state proudly and without reservation. I mean it to my core.
I was stunned when we were contacted by Mayor Pete's team requesting an interview. Absolutely stunned.
Since Country music tends to lean in a conservative direction, I was surprised. But more than surprised, I was EXTREMELY flattered. One of the few truly viable candidates in the race raised his hand and asked for a place at the table. I was willing to give him that seat.
I would have also given a seat to any other viable candidate, from both sides. The only condition? They must also value and appreciate our listeners, and never treat them as pawns.
Nobody else reached out. I assume nobody else even thought to reach out.
The interview is twenty minutes in total length. I was proud of it. But in the end, I was told that I couldn't air it.
Again, I would have GLADLY welcomed any other viable candidates to be a guest, especially President Trump. To my thinking, the best way to a reasoned, thoughtful position on any topic, is to hear from both sides.
Regardless, the interview was killed.
I did, however, ask for permission to post the interview on my own personal SoundCloud account. I was given that blessing, and I am happy to share it with you there. (Link in Bio)
