Goin’ South: Team Blog @ ASI Show Orlando

Filed under: The ASI Show

WINGman NOTE: This is the first Team Blog post by Chinstrap. Show him some love.

This year’s ASI Show Orlando marked the first first-ever remote broadcast of the ASI Internet Radio Show. Awesome, right?! Well, depends on who you ask.

The superhero team of Lil Spice and I had the unenviable task of literally packing up the entire Pennsylvania-based studio and flying it to Florida for two broadcasts, then flying home and setting the studio back up for a third consecutive broadcast. Yes, you heard right. Our tight show schedule actually had us packing up the equipment right at the end of our Day 2 broadcast in Orlando, then flying back with it to our home base here in Trevose to set up for a radio show the following morning. Back-to-back-to-back is how we rolled, and I could think of a few adjectives better than “awesome” to describe the experience, but I digress.

Takeoff

So, how do you fly with all this radio equipment, you ask? The answer is with a huge, awkwardly shaped equipment case that, unfortunately for me, ended up outweighing Lil Spice, so the job of schlepping it through the state of Florida fell on my often-dislocated shoulders. But needless to say my limbs ended up staying in place and it’s safe to say that set-up went very smoothly.

A photo of me and the infamous case, as we arrived in Florida. Kudos to Spice for making it look like I have a palm tree growing out of my head.

Day 1

The first show started early Saturday morning amid a huge crowd of attendees. Highlights included a q/a session with David Blaise and of course the bikini models that handed out radio show pins to the crowd (don’t worry, I took photos).

Day 2

The Radio show on day two was equally as exciting, just without the models. The stand out for me had to have been when Counselor’s own Dave Vagnoni gave 3 contestants a chance to deliver their best ‘escalator pitch’, which actually involved Dave running back up the escalator after every pitch, very amusing. Our show on Sunday also included a hilarious celebrity look-alike contest that was easily won by a Dick Cheaney clone.

Breakin’ it down

Overall the show was a blast and boy do I miss that weather. But here’s the best part, we are doing it all over in Dallas in a few weeks. It was lots of fun and I urge you and your celebrity look-alike friends to join us.

I hope you enjoy the rest of these photos and I will see you in Dallas.
