Just wanted to let you all know that the Rainbow Radiothon of the Children’s Miracle Network will be on air tomorrow and Friday on 102.1 WDOK, from 6 am to 7pm. We recorded a new miracle story for Austin about a month ago since this is a different radio station than the one that did his first story (and since his story has completely changed in the course of two years).
Wow, I just re-listened to that original story and it really is powerful (except for all the hoops you have to jump through to listen to it — I will try post a more direct link soon). And they could not have picked a better song. I hope I like this new one as much — I won’t hear it until the rest of the world does, which always makes me a little nervous. It’s extremely hard to take this three-year-long saga and break it down from a one-hour interview to a three-minute piece, while maintaining any sense of accuracy. That’s one of the reasons I was so impressed with the recent Fox 8 News clip — because they so perfectly captured Austin and his journey in just a few short minutes.
There’s nothing on the WDOK website yet but they did ask for a bunch of photos so they could run slide shows during the songs, so definitely check in over the next few days. Austin and I will head down to the hospital tomorrow for his afternoon of tests and appointments and will stop by the live studio for an interview, probably between noon and 1.
Should make the day a little more pleasant….
