Chats From The Deck
Chats From The Deck is a compilation of recordings hosted by Dave Shallbetter, volunteer chairman of Sun 'n Fun Radio 1510 AM, part of the annual Sun 'n Fun Fly-in held in Lakeland, Florida, each April. (For more information on the fly-in please visit their website- sun-n-fun.org) Some are recordings of live interviews from the deck of the radio station. Others are pre-recorded interviews done by volunteer reporters during the fly-in. There may even be some Chats From The Virtual Deck and archived recordings from years gone by...

With the rapid approach of Sun 'n Fun 2011, March 29-April 3, 2011, I'm jammed up with chairman duties and had decided to delegate the recording tasks to others by creating a new concept- Open Mic Announcements. While looking for content for volunteer announcers to record, I stumbled across this on the Florida Air Museum's web site. After reading it, I realized I wanted to do this one myself.

I recorded the story, edited, reviewed, and converted it. But as I was reviewing the final cut, I found myself moved by the story (something that rarely happens when I'm listening to myself in a recording)

Please take a listen and give me your thoughts.

Thanks,

Dave
