I had the honor of being interviewed about Route 66 and the preservation work I do on the route.
I was asked to come into the studios of KPHO – CBS 5 Morning News Show here in Phoenix to talk about Route 66 and the preservation effort currently going on.
I met Paul Horton, the host, and the Arizona Governors Conference on Tourism a few weeks ago and he simply said to me after the conference ‘you have to come on our program’. He followed up and came through!
I did not know the questions going in, I did not really know the pictures and video they were going to show, but he updated me a few things which would be discussed before the cameras rolled.
It is the fastest 3 minutes of my life, especially when you are in from of the camera!
The only regret is I did not mention Needles CA by name for the 66 Motel sign and the two gas station currently being restored.
Who knows, maybe I will have another opportunity?? ; )
