Harvey Brings Us a Fan

SCR Fan low res[originally published in KCN, March 2013 and Spizz Magazine Vol 2 Iss 2 2013]

I have many a tale to tell from behind our Spinal Column Radio microphones.  In the past, I’ve told of groupies braving the rain to take in a show, and how we podcasted atop the nearly forgotten grave of Harvey Lillard — the once deaf janitor who holds a place in chiropractic history as its first patient.  But I’ve never shared how this legend in chiropractic was responsible for bringing us a fan.

Remembering the First Interview 6[originally published in KCN, July 2012 and Spizz Magazine Vol 2 Iss 1 2012]

I’ll never forget my first interview, but my son will never remember it.

Logan, my ten year-old audio engineer son, and I were eight months into producing our Internet radio program about “all-things-chiropractic,” and we were attracting a growing audience from all over the world.

Before I knew it, I was on the phone with Dr. James Dubel, the founder of one of the largest chiropractic gatherings that attracts a multitude of chiropractors every year to learn from the biggest names in the profession.  He had tuned into our show, liked it, and was inviting us out to his event to set up an “on location studio” to interview his chiropractic superstar lineup.

Finding Harvey Lillard: Chiropractic’s First Patient — podcasting “6 feet over”

September 18, 2013

I’m always on the lookout to break from the confines of my studio to record another episode of Spinal Column Radio.  Whether it’s firing up the mic to podcast on a sandy beach, conduct an interview while soaking in a hot tub, or introduce our show at 2500 feet from the backseat of a Cessna, my creative side is always thinking ahead.  Such was the case when I approached Dr. Graeme Gibson for an interview atop the grave of our profession’s first patient:  Harvey Lillard.

No, Dr. Hoffman, I Salute You!

December 31, 2010

[originally published in KCN, January 2011]

Having just celebrated the first anniversary of my internet radio show, Spinal Column Radio, I have a heightened awareness and interest in other health radio programs — especially when another professional makes a positive reference to chiropractic.  So you’ll understand when I tuned my ear to Dr. Ronald Hoffman’s long-standing, nationally-syndicated, medical broadcast, “Health Talk,” as he “saluted his chiropractic colleagues” in a recent live show.

December 18, 2009

[originally published in KCN, January 2010]

On January 1st, 2010, the SpinalColumnRadio.com “podcast” debuts with yours truly on the Internet “air” talking about the very topics I write about.  And while the idea of a chiropractic podcast is relatively new, a chiropractic broadcast is not.
