Clay Aiken was busy early on Tuesday morning and he did something a bit different than the norm…and got a lot of positive comments for what he did.
At 8:15 am, Clay visited the radio station, WDCG – G105 FM. He appeared on the controversial show, Bob and the Showgram. This long-running morning show features Host Bob Dumas and Co-Host Erica Delong.
According to Wikipedia:
“Bob and the Showgram” has a history of controversial broadcasts and subsequent disciplinary actions. Bob Dumas is a self-proclaimed “narcissistic redneck” and often makes statements which take on an inflammatory note against non-Christians and Harry Potter fans. Dumas even refused to play “Guitar Hero” based on the fact “satan” showed up at the end of the game.
However, Clay was prepared to meet with Bob and held his own during the lively interview. Bob’s style is to ask “in your face” embarrassing questions and he tries to make the interview uncomfortable for the guest and the audience. But…this was Clay Aiken and when Clay is prepared, he can give it as well as take it. Clay got lots of laughs and didn’t let Bob get away with anything. The best part of the interview was Clay giving it right back to Bob. Clay is intelligent and is very knowledgable. Clay refused to be intimidated.
Before you listen to this interview, remember that Bob is trying to embarrass Clay so many of his questions are personal and inappropriate. However, it is wonderful to hear Clay put him in his place! So…you choose whether you want to hear the interview!!.. You can hear it at SHOWGRAM Look to the right of the page and under podcasts, play October 14, p2,p3, and p4.
On Tuesday afternoon, Clay sent out a great tweet. It was followed by others with some great pictures!
What a great idea! The bus is beautiful and it will give Clay and the team the ability to meet and listen to many more people in district 2.
From Cary, the bus traveled to Sanford for a political forum sponsored by the Sanford Herald. Clay was there along with Rep. Renee Ellmers.
