I’ve been a fan of KLIF‘s morning show host, Jeff Bolton, since my husband got me hooked on what I affectionately referred to as “old man radio” about 4 years ago. I wouldn’t dream of calling into the show and revealing myself for the politically ignorant, uncaffeinated zombie I am in the morning, but I would occasionally email Jeff with my well-thought out and clever little one liners. I was hugely flattered when Jeff, in turn, responded to my emails with compliments on my website and work (and didn’t make fun of my comments). A few years later, and I finally got to meet the man behind the voice and the family I hear him talk about so often for a family Christmas session! How completely surreal that was! Except as it turns out, totally normal folksWell I guess that’s not very surprising at all… even if Jeff does insist that they are all pretty wacky. Maybe wacky is my normal?
Mrs. Blaine Bolton, once and I think future model, is drop dead gorgeous. Definitely imparted her children with some beautiful genes. Evan, newly 16 and learning to be a responsible driver, impressed me with his photoshop knowledge. Rachel impressed me with her cuteness (I mean…whatever you call cute at the teenage level) and humor, so much that I really would like to steal her. I think they kind of like her too, though. My husband was kind (lucky) enough to come along and help carry around the couch for the very-special-session. Also, nobody stepped on snakes.
Jeff was kind enough to give me a soundbite, because being a radio guy, that’s what he does. I imagine him saying this on air in his big radio guy voice and it makes me warm and happy. Too bad my blog doesn’t have sound. Use your imagination
“I work with professional photographers around the world in my media career, and I very specifically chose Robin as my personal and family photographer. She’s fussy about the right things, free-spirited and creative on set, and just flat magic with photo touch up (of which I require…much). I’m busy with radio, writing a book and producing a feature film; I don’t have time for guesswork when I need a photography project completed. I only work with the varsity, and that’s why I work with Robin.” JEFF BOLTON
Heck yeah…I’m getting teeshirts made with my logo on the front and “fussy about the right things” on the back. THANKS, JEFF!
