While in Las Vegas for the 2014 Destination Marketing Assiciation International Convention (#DMAI14) we met up with a virtual who's who of the world's foremost travel influencers on The Linq's High Roller - the world's largest observation wheel.
Wile podcasting from a pod, Rick Griffin spoke with travel celebrities Matt Villano, Captain and Clark, Kate Thomas, and Spencer Spellman about Las Vegas, DMAI, honeymoons, the Pleasure Pit, and travel. Ever cautious of heights, Sandi McKenna remained on the ground to notify next-of-kin should anything go wrong:)
Ever wonder what happens "Behind the Scenes"? Today we're talking with Dan Rogers and Brenda Colladay who will tell us just that.
Dan Rogers has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry staff since 1998. Serving as Director of Marketing and Communication, he shares the Opry’s rich stories via print, digital, and broadcast media. His first trip backstage at the Opry was during a family vacation when he was in kindergarten, and his personal favorite Opry backstage memories are watching Loretta Lynn prepare to take the stage, introducing radio and television personality Charles Osgood to the backstage goings-on at the Opry, and eavesdropping on Lorrie Morgan and Pam Tillis during their photo shoot for BACKSTAGE at the Grand Ole Opry. His other Opry title is Tune Town Trivia: The Grand Ole Opry's Ultimate Country Music Quiz Book.
Brenda Colladay joined the Grand Ole Opry as its very first Museum and Photograph Curator in 1997, charged with collecting, organizing, caring for, and sharing the costumes, instruments, photographs, and memorabilia that illustrate the Opry’s colorful story and cast of unforgettable characters. She often jokes that her job is “eighty-plus years of history versus me,” but enjoys creating museum exhibits for the Grand Ole Opry and historic Ryman Auditorium, assisting researchers, filmmakers, and authors, and discovering “new” stories about the Opry’s past. Colladay previously served as photo editor for the book, The Grand Ole Opry: The Making of an American Icon.
In this episode we speak with the one and only Danica Patrick, the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing. Danica is one of the most searched athletes on all of Google. She has hosted the Country Music Awards, been on the cover of Sports Illustrated, been featured in numerous iconic Super Bowl commercials for GoDaddy.com and is currently a celebrity spokesperson for Can-Am Spyder. Her love of food and travel make her the ideal celebrity to talk about road trips!
Can-Am Spyder is running a promotion with Danica Patrick on Facebook where one lucky fan will win a Can-Am Spyder of their own and another will get to Ride With Danica! You can enter online or visit a local dealer to enter: however, I want to discourage your from entering as it will improve my odds of winning:)
As a part of Expedia's Find Your Storybook campaign, we are exploring the theme of Ancestry Travel. We intend to research our ancestors, trace their paths and visit, the places they lived, worked, played and died.
Today's guest is Michelle Ercanbrack, a family historian from Ancestry.com. Michelle comes from a long line of family historians. Her broadcast work has included appearances on Extra!, HLN, major market newscasts and countless radio shows. Michelle was an integral part of several globally-renown genealogical research projects, including Kate Middleton’s connection to Jane Austen and President Obama’s connection to the first documented enslaved African in America. Michelle has also been part of the research for the TV show “Who Do You Think You Are?” Graduating with a degree in Family History and Genealogy from the only such program in the United States, Michelle has been an official Ancestry.com spokesperson since 2010, and in her spare time loves visiting museums and spending time outdoors.
In today's show we recap our incredible trip to Vail Colorado with Vail Mountain Communications Coordinator, Sara Lococo! Sara was born and raised on the east coast in western Massachusetts.
