Brooks & Duffy (aka Dead Air, Part Two)

Maybe it's the season. Maybe it's the fact I've already gotten into the eggnog. Whatever it is, I refused to become stressed over the fact I still had a program full of dead air as of 3 p.m. today.

(Actually, it's because I had a backup program recorded - just in case. But that sounds so boring.)

The good news is, I won't be using that recorded program until after Christmas.

Both Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy and Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks will be here tomorrow to talk about economic development in downtown Rochester.

Yup, that's who my original guests were. Then the federal Housing and Urban Development folks announced they were coming to town, and they would need both my guests for a press conference. Maybe it's the season. Maybe they got into the eggnog early too. Whatever the reason, they decided their press conference should really be moved to another time of day.

Need to Know: Developing Downtown is back on!
