I asked them if I could do an interview with them, and they agreed, but told me that the Independent had already got them, but you know what? I can go to press faster than the Independent.
Well, again, audioblogger was down today, or we could have had a nice, breaking-news audio report. Unfornately, my backup plan of recording a voice-mail and later doing a three-way call with audioblogger.com did not work either. For some reason the voice mail never showed up. So I will do my best to recount from memory how the interview went.
Lance: Hi this is Lance here on the corner of Broadway and Ryman with cars honking in the background, and two boys holding up a sign that reads, "Honk If You're Happy," and I have the privilege of doing an audio interview with them. How are you doing today Erik Burton?
Erik: Good, thanks.
Lance: Now why are you guys out here holding up this sign that looks like it is getting beat up by the weather.
Erik: Well, no reason really, we just wanted to cheer people up, you know with the rain.
Lance: That's great! I see you also have a sign taped to your t-shirt that reads, "Proud To Be Adopted, April." What is that about?
Erik: Well, I was adopted seven days after birth, and I am proud of it. (I think he said more here, but I can't quite remember)
Lance: Cool. So Michael Montoya, how are you doing today?
Michael: Fine, thanks.
Lance: Now, you are out here holding up this sign with your friend. How has the response been? Would you say there have been more cars honking or not honking?
Michael: More honking.
Lance: Great. How long have you been out here?
Michael: About an hour.
Lance: Wow, are you getting a little cold being out in the rain?
Michael: Yeah, a little bit.
Lance: This is pretty crazy, have you guys ever done stuff like this before?
Michael: Well, we played Marco Polo in the mall. That was pretty cool.
Lance: Cool. Well, thank you for your time, do you guys have any final words?
Erik: Have a happy day!
Lance: Well, I guess that's it. #
Erik and Michael, if you are reading, leave us all some comments, and tell us how it all turned out. I hope it went well.
