My impromptu interview with Yannick Nézet-Séguin from last month is available here on the WRTI site. And hey, here’s another photo, taken through the broadcast studio window (you can make out some reflection). To my left, Cecil B. Moore Avenue. Behind Yannick is the news broadcast booth, I remember Joe Irrizary being behind the glass, preparing for his 11:57:30 airtime. I’m checking, and… yes, the correct sliders on the broadcast console are up, whew. No, it’s not a board, it’s a console. There’s a very good reason for that. No, I don’t know the reason, and don’t tell the production manager, because he told me the reason once, and I’ve forgotten, okay? Okay. There’s also a very good reason they placed that huge window between the hallway and the broadcast studio. It’s to make brand-new on-air hosts as nervous as possible. And it works like a charm!
