The Convention is Officially Underway

Denver - Ronn Owens Show.JPG

(Denver, Colorado)

The gavel bangs at 3pm Mountain Time in Denver! This has been a crazy day already. I jumped in as a substitute guest on the Ronn Owens show at 11 am. I am also trying to test my new TV equipment so I can tape interviews and upload them to my blog. That's coming soon.

Funny thing, what a small world politics can be. I found out this morning that my "across-the-street-neighbor" growing up, produced the film tribute to the Kennedy's which airs tonight. Mark Herzog is his name. His dad was the was the main anchorman at WISN-TV in Milwaukee when we were kids. Ironic, that we both wind up in Denver for this convention! Anyway, Mark produced the film with legendary producer Ken Burns. I can't wait to see it.

Mark Curtis Talks Politics on the Ronn Owens Show on KGO-AM 810


(Denver, Colorado)

Expect the unexpected at a political convention! At 10:55 this morning my phone rang, with Mark Silvermann on the other end. Mark produces the Ronn Owens Show on KGO radio.

Their guest, Lt. Gov. John Garamendi, was stuck in traffic. So how quick could I get to their location and be on the show?
30 seconds, and I was there! Ronn and I talked a half-hour on politics, etc. You can go to where it will be listed in the archives. Just click and listen! I was on from 11 to 11:30 a.m., so check it out. They put all their shows on the web.

By 11:30, the Lt. Gov. showed up! That's him in the photo with me, if you are not a Californian. He could be our next Governor, when Arnold retires. John's daughter Genet and I have been good friends for many years, from the days when I was a reporter on Capitol Hill in DC and she was press secretary for Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA).

Stay tuned for more blogs throughout the day and night! I will also be on KTVU-TV2 in the Bay Area, each morning from Denver at 7:45. Check back at my all-new blog and web site! Later!!!
