WZLX Interviewing the Next Governor

wzlx_karlsonmckenzie_500x350There’s the adage that the only interviews which don’t work on the radio are the ones that suck.  Last week were midterm elections and listeners had no desire to hear talking points about boring issues from candidates.  Until you get to Karlson and McKenzie, WZLX, Boston, who interviewed a candidate for governor (who won).  Listen to the questions they ask.  They are neither political (where do you stand on…) nor standard (boxer or briefs…).  They ask questions which let us get to know the candidate as a person yet are exceptionally off-kilter to elicit from the candidate both his humanity and laughter.
