JZ in Studio

Apr 18, 2014 -- 6:05am

     KTOE Morning Blend Producer Dan McCargar got a very exciting Email yesterday.  The email talked about the Friday Morning visit...IN STUDIO of JZ!  Dan's first question immediatly was:  Is Beyonce coming as well?  We were originally expecting our monthly visit with Greater Mankato Growth CEO Jonathan Zierdt at 8:20...but it isn't often that we get the chance to speak with THAT BIG OF A STAR IN STUDIO...so Jonathan Zierdt will have to move to a different day.

    As this editor thinks about it...it's a coincidence that JZ has the same initials as Jonathan Zierdt...and it's odd that JZ reached out to KTOE as we don't play any of his music.  But we are excited...and have some Destinys Child music ready to go...and a couple of Beyonces songs as well. As I read further into the email I see that JZ wants to talk about the Mankato Job Numbers...so maybe he is looking at opening a recording studio in Mankato? That is possible right?

     Oh, crud....JZ is Jonathan Zierdt...great Jonathan Zierdt is coming as planned.  Really looking forward to catching up with(editors note: we are really bummed that JZ isn't coming) Jonathan Zierdt. The Mankato area is growing at leaps      (Editors note...we are seriously disappointed that BEYONCE won't be in studio) and bounds and Zierdt will tell us why  (Editors note...I wish this guy would wrap it up...it started so GREAT...JZ AND BEYONCE LIVE IN STUDIO ON KTOE...and  it ends in a such utter disappointment...Zierdt in studio...just say: "Grab A Cup of The Morning Blend" and finish it)
