Cindy Graves Show on WBOB expands to 2 hours with special live audience broadcast 

Early guests mingle ahead of the show.

I headed over to the Salem Center on Monday to be part of the first live audience broadcast for The Cindy Graves Show. Cindy’s show on WBOB 600 AM expanded to 2 hours as of today (airs 12 noon-2p.m. weekdays), and I was honored to be invited to do a segment with Cindy and producer Alexander Pantinakis for this special day. I snapped some photos and I really enjoyed meeting and greeting  guests.

WBOB 600 AM really did a fine job setting up the event, with a barbeque lunch for guests and attendees (Shane’s Rib Shack provided the great food today), and a chance at prizes like 2 tickets to a Florida State University football game. [Story continues after photo.]

The show was really interesting, with a focus on local politics as well as the impact of state and national politics on each of us, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act commonly called ObamaCare, the 2014 Florida gubernatorial race and Syria. I had a good time talking to fellow Jaxers, meeting some of the folks from the radio station and seeing others I already knew. [Story continues after photo.]

Leslie Jennings Dougher, Cindy and Alexander. Leslie, dubbed the “chair of chairs” is Chair of the Republican Party of Clay County and she’s also a realtor, ABR, SRF, SRES at Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty.

Cindy is one of those inspiring people whose energy seems unlimited. I honestly don’t know how she keeps up with herself. My son-in-law, David Thompson, came out to see what his mother-in-law does when she’s not blogging or screaming at her favorite football team (the SC Gamecocks) when they screw up. It was a real treat to be able to see David for lunch because his courtroom duties often make that impossible.

Chelsi P. Henry, Cindy and Alexander. Chelsi is NE Florida Market Manager for CFO Jeff Atwater at the Florida Department of Financial Services, and supervisor at the Soil and Water Conservation District. Chelsi is a graduate of Florida Coastal Law School.

I took a few pictures with my cell phone and I realized when I looked at them, I need to break down and get a new phone. I really dislike giving phone companies money unless I absolutely have to.  [Story continues after photo.]

Chelsi P. Henry, a guest named Marty from St. Augustine who calls into the show sometimes, and my son-in-law, David Thompson who is a prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office - 4th Judicial Circuit.WBOB is broadcasting the show every day this week, wrapping it up on Friday, Sept. 13. I’ll be back to do a segment that day. Meanwhile, the public is invited and you can even volunteer to comment townhall-style from the audience; today’s audience members were extremely well-informed.

I do a weekly news wrap and commentary, usually on Fridays, for the show, and that’s one aspect of this work I truly enjoy. Our callers never cease to amaze me—they include Republicans, Democrats, libertarians and whatever comes in between all that.

A note: I didn’t get a photo of today's final guest Scott Wiley who talked about politics in the Beaches area here. I had to leave about 15 minutes before the show concluded so I could get this posted and the photos edited before the end of the day.

If you’d like to be part of this special week, check out the WBOB Facebook page for more info. And if you’re outside the broadcast area, you can always tune in online at wbobradio.com. WBOB is based in Jacksonville (Fla.) and also carries national radio talkers like Glenn Beck, Michael Savage (one of my personal favs), Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin.
