Join Me Sunday Night on K-Talk Radio (AM 630 in Salt Lake City and on the Internet)

Due to a rash of alien abductions resulting in a shortage of qualified or interesting guests, I've been asked to participate in a two-hour LDS radio program for Utah's favorite talk radio station, K-Talk (AM 630). The program starts at 5 PM Mountain Time this Sunday, May 25. I'll be calling in from beautiful Appleton, Wisconsin. It's Van Hale's program, but he's out of town and Don Ormsby will be running the show and the interview with me.

Wish me luck. You know I need it!! It's even easier to put your foot in your mouth on the radio than it is on the blogosphere. Apologies in advance to my fellow Latter-day Saints.

If you're not in Salt Lake, you can listen to the program live through the K-Talk Web site. Here's the email notice sent out by Van Hale about the show:

Hey Jeff,

I thought that I would also let you know that I will be listening in new-school style, streaming online. It will be interesting to listen to your voice and combine it with your pictures and writing style. Good luck

Peter.

P.S. I am engaged to an awesome girl.

Thanks, Peter, and congratulations. I hope she'll be listening, too.

I just finished listening. I didn't hear the whole thing, but got parts of it.

Good job, Jeff.

The phone connection didn't seem very clear. Maybe next time they can have their remote guests use Skype or other VOIP based connection to improve audio quality with the remote guest.

I realize the shows "local callers" are coming in over a phone line, but the main guest probably ought to have something better.

You carried off your end quite well, IMO.

Glenn Beck should have you as a guest when he does Mormon-related stuff. You sounded professional and level-headed.

Just finished listening to the show. I was at a meeting and didn't get to listen in until a caller named Randy called in-- around 7:30 or so, I guess. I wish that the callers who followed him hadn't called just to make observations or respond to Randy's call!! I was really hoping to hear different questions and your answers!
I understand their frustration though. I was sitting here talking to my speakers--"Hello!! Randy! He DID answer your question. He said that he can't name an archeaologist who isn't LDS who can PROVE that the BOM is true." But he kept acting as thought you didn't answer him.
The thing is, and I think anyone listening could tell... as was suggested, if a non-LDS archeaologist discovered that the BOM is a true record and COULD prove it's factual history, then that person would probably end up joining the church, and then Randy would dismiss them since they're *now* LDS. So what's the point of asking the question??
Anyway, I wish I could hdave heard the whole show, but from what I DID hear, I thought you did a great job.
