Jones on BBC-TV

Allen and Son
Is there no end to Blooker madness? Yes, on April 3 when we announce the winners. In the meantime, BBC-TV has picked up from the BBC Radio Five lead and is flying a crew down to interview me, in my role as judge, tomorrow.
The question is where to do the interview. In the lovely SILS Library? Outside if the weather holds? Or at Allen and Son BBQ? I’m leaning toward the last.

Dean Bowers suggests the Kuralt Learning Center, a great place. But the BBC-TV want — get this — my office “probably with the
blinds shut (for what the producer describes as a “cyberspace feel”).”
This is why the French and Italians are known for high fashion and the Brits for bowlers.


  1. Holy cow! Thats so cool. I don’t know if I’d trust the weather though. I would do it in that super-snazzy conference room in JOMC, I don’t remember its name, though.

  2. As someone who has been in your office, I’m not sure “Cyberspace” is the first word that leaps to mind….

  3. With the blinds shut? Your office has no windows! Not a bad choice, though.

  4. yes fred, the freedom forum! outdoor weaver st? or head over to state’s brickyard with the not-so-cyberspaceship in the background…

    We ended up shooting the Halls of Fame room in Carroll. (See article above). I got to sit in Charles Kuralt’s chair.
