Listen to Rusty – Don’t Buy Gift Cards, the Kingdom is Coming, and Singing in West Louisville

Listen in this week as Rusty Satellite is on the road meeting two more of the most interesting people in the ‘Ville — first stop is Ed Hart’s office in the Highlands, where we learn all about the new and improved Kentucky Kingdom that opens for business in the spring. Hart talks about the enormous economic impact the opening of the Park will have on the city, and goes over some of the hurdles it took to get here. There are a bunch of new rides, and the amusement park will be hosting a job fair in January. Later I met WHAS-TV’s Joe Arnold at 38th and Market, where he was doing a story on a new economic development initiative there. Joe’s the only beat reporter on politics working for a TV station in this market. I also got him to sing a line or two, so you’ll want to hear that. And in the spirit of Thanksgiving and Holiday Shopping, I offer up for your consideration my annual gift card rant, in which I encourage you to just go to the store and get me something I can open on Christmas Day.
