On Tuesday, several of your intrepid organizers and many of our awesome makers got out of bed early to publicize the Louisville Mini Maker Faire on the WDRB and WHAS morning shows.
First, we went down to Market Street at the crack of midnight to hang out with Keith Kaiser of WDRB for a few hours. Turns out he plays the drums and sat in for an impromptu streetside concert with the Smoke Shop Kids, powered by SoularGIG. Then we met Teddie Mower of the Bluegrass Bioneers as well as Hannah and Danielle of the Kentucky Science Center showing off the Makey Makey. (Even Lynn Quire of Good Garbage makes a rare cameo during that last segment!)
Then we hustled across town to WHAS for a segment on Great Day Live. We wanted to pack as many makers as we could into that segment, and boy did we deliver – the producers looked kind of frightened, actually. The station manager tells us that so far it’s the highest rated segment of the week!
Meet all these Makers – and many many more – this Saturday at the Maker Faire!
