It took longer than we had planned, but I think we’ve finally cobbled together the audio of last night’s 5th District debate.
Poor Brandt Williams! He covered the debate, banged out his story by about 1 a.m. and then spent hours trying to get the audio fed back to St. Paul where our operations team was to get it encoded,tell me, and I’d put it here and on the Campaign 2006: 5th District section.
But the line from Minneapolis to St. Paul kept dropping and very early this morning he gave up, but returned to City Hall (to cover the Dolan hearing before the City Council at 9) and gave it another shot, and the pieces got put together.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the middle of it jumps around a bit (you may hear a section twice), since my audio editing system is out for repair.
Just another day in the radio business.
