Don LaFontaine apologyIt was 2007.

Everyone was excited about the extra special guest speaker for my annual International Radio Creative & Production Summit:

Don LaFontaine.

Just a few days prior to the Summit, the phone rang.

It was Don, and as soon as I heard his voice I knew there was a problem.

His chagrin and regret were palpable, as he explained that he wasn’t going to be able to be at the Summit after all. It was obvious that Don felt terrible at having to bail out on such short notice.

He apologized repeatedly and profusely.

Finally I said, “Don, trust me: If I could find a way to spin this situation so that I could get mad at you, I would. But I can’t figure out any way to blame you for this, so don’t worry about it.”

Here’s Don himself, explaining to the attendees why he wouldn’t be there with him.

Who Owns Whose Words

When you post something on this blog, you retain the right to use your words elsewhere.

I get to use your words elsewhere, too: in a newsletter, book, 3-D hologram, major motion
picture, etc. I'm not saying I will, but it's possible.

But you don't get to take the stuff I write here – even if it's in response to something you
wrote – and use it elsewhere.

Just so you know.
