This particular episode was unique in that it was entirely pre-recorded from my home office. My family left the previous evening to visit my mom and to attend the annual Apple Festival in Versailles, MO. This is the second consecutive year we’ve attended the event, and given that we have a two-year-old little girl it will remain a yearly tradition for a very long time.

It was interesting to put the show together. It took longer than anticipated, like what occurs with most worthwhile pursuits. Those of you who have created podcasts can likely relate. Having a quality USB microphone really made it possible to complete and produce the opening segment, and then I used Audacity as my audio editing software program, including editing my two interviews. I streamed the show from afar, and producer John Parker did an excellent job of flowing the show as intended on air. It’s not as easy as some may think.

My opening commentary included a preview of the show's guests and the latest NBA news; this included Carmelo Anthony and a Denver Nuggets update, Greg Oden news, the rookie class of 2007 and more.

Segment 2 featured an interview with Chaminade College Prep High School head basketball coach Kelvin Lee. Kelvin has been at Chaminade for 14 years, and coached NBA star David Lee for his four seasons there. We re-visited those days with coach Lee, got his thoughts on David Lee now being in Golden State, and what Lee’s high school recruiting madness was like - and why he went to Florida.

The final interview segment showcased NBA and Sacramento Kings writer Zach Harper. We discussed whether the Kings can remain in Sacramento now that their proposed arena deal has fallen through. Of course, we attempt to see if the Kings may move to STL, and what lies ahead in the Kings’ future.

The show wrapped up with a final news segment and my sign off. We touched on North Carolina freshman Harrison Barnes, the story of USC superstar Harold Miner, Nate Robinson wearing Shaquille O’Neal’s size 22 shoes and signed off with a big thanks to show sponsors RG Plumbing Services, The Post Sports Bar & Grill and producer Jon Parker.
