RADIO INTERVIEW

I had a pretty good night at the Microtel in the northern part of Tupelo, Mississippi. I didn't get very much sleep because I was excited about the radio interview. Several months ago, I started to communicate via E-Mail with Tim Wildmon at the American Family Radio Christian Broadcasting Station. Tim said that if I ever came to Tupelo there would be a standing invitation to be interviewed on his radio show "Today's Issues" which would be heard across the country and in several provinces of Canada.

I got to the radio station around 9:00 a.m. and met with Tim Wildmon and his co-host Marv Saunders. After a short talk and a mini-tour of the center, we went to the radio studio around 9:50 a.m. At 10:05 a.m., Marv and Tim started their introduction banter.

It was around 10:15 a.m. when I was ushered into the sound-proof booth. The interview went really quickly. I was just given snippets of time between the banter between Marv and Tim. At least, I hoped I had gotten the basics of my message and testimony.

There was a lot more that I wished that I could have talked about. Tim and Marvin went on several tangents to what the interview was to be about. The last fifteen minutes of the show was a call-in section. Six callers from around the country called in.

One of the callers was an elderly lady from Kentucky who was a "completed Jew" also but another was from a Christian lady who had a son that converted to Orthodox Judaism. In the short time that we talked on the radio, It was brought up that the Judaism of today is not the same as the Judaism of David's time. Judaism had gone from Davidic Judaism to Rabbinical Judaism.

By 10:59 a.m., the interview and the program was over. I was sort of let down and emotionally drained. After the show, Tim went off to do is own thing so I didn't get to say good-bye. Marvin stayed with me. Somebody gave me an envelope with twenty-five dollars in it. Another person gave me five dollars and a bag of homemade trail mix.

Since it was getting close to lunch time, Marvin offered to buy me lunch. Before we left, Marvin was able to locate an AFR t-shirt for me and also a copy of Mike Trout's (from Focus on the Family) book about his ride across the country last year. Before leaving for lunch, we stopped at the bicycle to put the t-shirt and the book away. I was surprised at finding four twenty dollar bills on top of my handlebar bag.
