    I head to Oshkosh tomorrow through Sunday. As many of you know, I am a co-host of the Stuck Mic AvCast (stuckmicavcast.com). At Oshkosh and Sun N Fun I try to get some interviews for the podcast with various vendors or manufacturers or pilots or attendees or whatever is interesting.

    Sun N Fun is my main event for this - I am volunteer for the SNF Radio station and spend all my time doing interviews for them and the SMAC.

    For Oshkosh, interviews are not my focus - having fun and enjoying the events and seminars and such is my focus. However, I would like to conduct at least a few interviews for later airing on the podcast (probably the Aug 15th episode).

    So, who should I interview? Like I said, I will only have time for a few of them.

    Guidelines - I'm trying to focus on those people and companies who you can't usually find interviews with. I mean, Sean Tucker is a great guy and would be a lot of fun to interview, but it's been done before. You can search Youtube and find tons of interviews with him. But it's hard to find an interview with "Bob's Tow Bars" even though he might have a great product. So if you've been there for a couple of days now and saw some neat things, please let me know (if you can give me a booth number that would be great) and I'll see if I can make it by later this week and how many I can get done.

    Please see the Stuck Mic AvCast episode 143, "Interviews from Sun N Fun" for examples of what I'm looking for.

    Thanks!

    Come on by the Gold Seal DC-3 and we'll give you an up close and personal tour of our 1938 airplane. We're parked right next to Aeroshell Square.

    What about the hot dog vendor? I'm sure he's got some interesting stories...

    Whoever you can find that looks the drunkest at midnight.

    If you're going for raw entertainment value, that is...

    Definitely not. How do I know? I was WAY drunker than Patty last year. At least once, anyway. :)

    1. Tower and Fisk controllers if not done previously
    2. First time attendee that's a pilot
    3. Whichever experimental appears to have the most tricked out avionics
    4. If doing multiple, a Doc-Fifi with both crews

    Talk to the guy with the DeHaviland Dove parked near the DC3's in vintage. They were supposed to leave today, but it is an interesting story of how he saved that plane, almost the last of it's kind, and the last flying in the America's) and why it may not be flying anymore, soon.

    One of the ladies with the two D-36s flying in tight formation over in the beer tent. I'll bet they've got some stories that will curl your hair (in a manner of speaking of course).

    We went to the MyFlightbook meet up. It was great to meet Eric and there was some very productive conversion to be had.

    :)

    Pretty much better than expected. 18 posts, 7 with actual recommendations. Pretty good signal to noise ratio for POA!

    There's a Dove setting on the ramp at FTG. Dunno if it is flyable. Do know they keep air in the tires...

    Guys...we're slipping. 38% is just not good enough. I expect more noise in the future. :)
