Always appreciate insightful comments from you.
This particular show was never intended to be hard hitting but was more fluff as Stewart and
Janet were getting ready to go overseas on their excursion and we had an opening and window of opportunity. As we had interviewed Stewart before on
. A lot of things are dictated by how he himself approached the interview. Another thing that also happens, what the members hear is the
interview itself, not the off air conversation that happens before which really sets the stage and tempo of what we are going to record and put on the
air. A perfect example is Willie Rodriguez, The Last Man Out of the Twin Towers on 911. With the exception of one or two small bits of humor, the
entire interview of almost 2 hours was a roller coaster of emotions for both Johnny and I.
A lot of people who are not members and have come to ATS have come because we try NOT
to make the interviews so stuffy but, as we have said
since day 1, try to take heavy subjects..... add a bit of humor to it so it is not so matter of factual.... and hope to blend a nice combination of
the two. The overwhelming majority of the ATS MIX Shows... Graham Hancock, Stanton Friedman, Jesse Ventura, Brent Spiner, Dr. Jesse Marcel, Jr.,
Shirley MacLaine, etc., were prime examples of factual, informative, yet fun interviews with guests.
I completely understand about the heavy members wanting heavy interviews of what we have on the boards...... however, our mission is to bring new
people to our home with the goal to get them here, let them look around at what we have to offer and hopefully stay around permanently. Considering
that the ATS MIX Show has amassed a 23 million subscriber fan base in a year, we must be meeting that mission to a degree. The Jesse Ventura Interview
and traffic alone was close to an ATS record of most downloaded shows and pushed the envelope drastically of the ATS Servers.
Like I said.... always appreciate your comments and those of other members whose topics and threads we try to expose to the world that, right now,
doesn't know we all exist.
Not every attempt is going to be a Home Run, but I can assure you it is not because we aren't giving it a 200% try each and every time.
