Phil Williams, of WOKI News/Talk 98.7 FM, an icon of Knoxville radio, finally found the spot he’d promised me two months ago, and we got together yesterday from 4 to 4:45 for an on-air chat about Truth at Last. I wish he would have read the book before we engaged, but when we’d finished, Phil seemed genuinely interested in actually reading it. Perhaps he can free himself from the thousand things that compete for his attention daily and read the book, but just getting on his show in a real radio station and decent market like Knoxville is a bit of a breakthrough, and is much appreciated.
Jack, a friend and fellow Navy man who lives up the street, sent me some of Phil’s more memorable comments during the show:
“I may have you on again.”
“You are the most prepared guest I’ve ever seen.”
“You opened my eyes!”
“I’ll link your Website to my Facebook page!”
“You are a fascinating guest!”
All in all, not too bad. Many thanks go out to Knoxville’s Phil Williams and his producer, Shelley Ellis-Farrell, for their forthright support of Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last.
