I was contacted by NPR (National Public Radio) correspondent Ashley Milne-Tyte who advised me that she is doing a story on the Yule Log for NPR's Marketplace radio program. She wanted to interview me for the story, and I was more than willing to do it; but unfortunately, they can no longer use tape recorded over the telephone for features like this. I declined the interview if it meant the inconvenience of going into the City (N.Y.), so she was actually willing to come to my home to do it. But alas, in the end, because of a scheduling conflict of when she needed to do it, I had to decline the interview anyway.
As a result, I asked my friend Jessica Bellucci (Communications VP at WPIX-TV) to stand in for me and do the interview for me, which she did yesterday. I will post a follow-up to this post when I have the date/time when the story will air.
