The Ghosts in the Machine
Friday, July 30, 2004 - 03:50 PM
Today was the first time in a week we covered anything other than the convention – albeit for the last 20 minutes. We’ll be back to our normal coverage by Monday (though the convention news will invariably crop up in the politics roundup).
I must say it was interesting producing the show with Brian 275 miles away. Though it felt like he was right next to us, the production was split between the two cities and we developed a system of what we dubbed “ghost producing” for the week’s shows. We managed everything from clips to calls in the studio in New York but most of the guests were at the Fleet Center spot. We hope we brought the Boston atmosphere to New York ears seamlessly. Let us know how you think we sounded. We’ll do it all again in a few weeks (minus 272 miles closer!).
