I tell people all the time that I have the best readers and radio listeners out there, anywhere. I’m Elvis and his blue suede shoes serious! The All Things Southern community rocks. For illustration I give you a glimpse into my email box last night. I got in from a weekend retreat and was cleaning out the inbox when order #2291 came through for three of the new “Keep Calm and Bless Their Hearts” Southern Pearl T-Shirts. Right after it I found a second order, #2292, with this message in the “special notes” section. Backstory before you see it– the orders were placed by a mother/daughter combo from Georgia I met last year when I did a conference at their church. Yes, I asked permission before clipping out this section of the order and posting it, and yes, I’ve laughed today every time I’ve thought of it, which is why I share it with you. With that, I give you the second order, lovingly placed by the daughter of the duo. Are you laughing?
Hey y’all! I’m fresh in from speaking at the Cowgirl Convention in Tyler, TX. My BFF traveled with me and we had a crazy good time. I’ll tell y’all more about it tomorrow on ATS LIVE the radio show! And speaking of– I hope you’re making plans to join me. My special guest tomorrow is writer/director Corbin Bernson, who will be with me talking about his latest DVD release, “3 Day Test.” Here’s a snippet about the film: Martin Taylor has totally lost touch with his family. He has no clue who his teenage daughter’s friends are, why his son only communicates with an electronic sign outside his bedroom door, or why his youngest child only watches faith TV. Convinced the family needs to reconnect, Martin surprises the wife and kids with a little experiment-he locks them in their own home with no power, no heat, no running water, and absolutely no contact with the world outside! The sudden holiday staycation isn’t what the Taylors had in mind for the weekend, but they’ll have to team up to prove they can survive Dad’s wacky mission. With a heartfelt message and some persistence, one little member of the family helps put their priorities back in the pews, because they’ll need all the faith they have to get through this! Details schmetails are the same: ATS LIVE airs from 5:00 to 6:00 Central time. You can hear it locally on TALK 540 KMLB or join us through the lovely Internet with my live streaming link. Our real time show chat is held on the All Things Southern Facebook wall, (not my personal wall), and yes– there WILL be a giveaway drawing. Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite. I’ll see y’all on the air tomorrow! Hugs, Shellie
Hey y’all! I’m making good on a promise I made a while back to let y’all tour the Redneck Radio Studio. Back story– every Monday morning I set up the Redneck Radio Studio to tape a week’s worth of the All Things Southern daily radio features. These three-minute segments will then be mixed and sent to my radio affiliates across the country. ( A short time later, I take the studio down and drive in to Monroe to host the ATS LIVE talk show at the Radio People Studios. ) But, perhaps you’re wondering just how it is that I “set up” and “take down” my studio. Watch closely, grasshopper and I will show you how it’s done. First, a look at the desk in my great room as it is when the The Redneck Radio Studio is not in operation. And now, the steps to creating a studio. It’s simple, really. A belle just takes a blanket and a couple floral bedspreads and using hooks hid during the week behind the cornice boards and via small plastic rings sewn into the corners of the fabric panels, she secures the “waffle boards” of the studio to the windows, partitioning off the studio to deliver the sound quality she’s after! Voila! Behold, in the last two pics of the collage I take you into The Redneck Radio Studio! So, who else do you know who can fold their studio up and put it in the closet until it’s needed again? That’s what I thought. Once again, belle ingenuity gets it done! And now you know the rest of the story. Hugs, Shellie
