The following is the interview of Mayor Rudy Wright on 1290 WHKYam Radio's First talk program with Hal Row.
WHKY does not archive these programs and make them available to the public, so I am putting this important public interview up under Fair Use guidelines.
(Segment 1) - Mayor and Hal talk about the Super Bowl. Hal and Mayor talk about the negative publicity the Mayor has received recently. Joe Brannock calls in about the signs and what the Mayor said that day.
(Segment 2) - Joe Brannock about the illegal signs and the Mayors comments. Larry Pope calls in to speak about the Bond Referendum, Commission, and the Diversity on the Commission.
(Segment 3) - Mayor talks about Bond Referendum, Commission, and process.
(Segment 4) - Lady calls in about burned areas along interstate. I (Thom Shell) call in about the Riverwalk Greenway and the multi-jurisdictional issues involving that area -- Burke County.
Hound Notes: Seems to me that the local PTB are saying, 'We are friends of one another. We know what is best for Hickory. We don't care what the laws are. If we do it it is alright. We are above these laws, even though we are the very people who passed them. Why are you always so negative, you S** o* a B, @##$#@$#@@, ###*++__&*&^&, *!!!**&... Sit down, shut up, Don't call us out on this or there's gonna be trouble!!!'
