John Fugelsang - unnervingly handsome devil that he is - is quite a guy. Humble, smart, funny, gracious and just an all around hell-of-a good dude.
It was somewhat random that he sent us an email early in the week, saying that he was in Asheville and would be in and out of town a lot in the future. And he somewhat sheepishly asked about coming on the show and spending some time.
Only a bunch of fools would say no to that.
Then, we were blessed with two (not one, but TWO) days in a row with John here with us, hanging out, taking calls, and charming the pants (so to speak) off of the lot of us here at 880.
It was funny, how, after his hour with us on Tuesday, as I was walking him out, he commented that he could come back Wednesday - if I wanted him to - before having to catch a 6:30 flight. I offered that he could come on at 3 and stay as long he liked. And he thanked me. Not me bowing down and showing unworthy allegience to him for being so kind. No, no. He was genuinely grateful that I would LET him on my show.
Man, I am still baffled.
What a nice guy.
And, I can go ahead and share with you all, that John will be back on the air here with us, when he is back in town. So, keep your ears out for his upcoming appearances on the show.
In the meantime, if you missed it, you can go and download the podcasts and hear the great time we had with the one and only John Fugelsang.
I am, indeed, not worthy. And lucky as hell.
