Friday morning, I visited on the air with Paul Hemmer and Lisa Bennet, the morning team at KGRR, the classic rock radio station sharing another corner of Eighth and Bluff streets.
The occasion was a shameless plug for my Sunday feature interview with Paul as part of the Telegraph Herald's Newsmakers series. Paul soon will mark 40 consecutive years of morning shows in Dubuque. He has 47 years in Dubuque radio, and is an accomplished musician, band leader, composer and arranger. Further, he is the youngest-ever recipient of the TH's First Citizen Award, receiving the honor in 1976.
We had a lighthearted chat for 7-10 minutes. It was a fun way to "warn" listeners that Hemmer will "grace" the TH front page Sunday. A longer version of the interview, plus some video, will be posted on THonline by 10 Sunday morning.
Thanks for the visit, Lisa and Paul!
