If we sound slightly odd in this show, it’s because we recorded it during a live television appearance on Roger’s Daytime.

Our first television appearance

Tuesday, July 29, 2008.

The set of Rogers Daytime Television in OttawaJust One More Book!! made its first television appearance, yesterday.  We were guests of Daytime, a magazine show on Rogers Television. Hosts Derick and TL asked us about podcasting in general and the origins of Just One More Book!! before exploring our love of children’s books.

After a short break, we recorded a review live on television (that review will be published tomorrow). It was very exciting (and scary!) to record our show in an unfamiliar setting, in front of the hosts, crew, a collection of cameras and a live television audience!

After the review, Derick and TL asked us about the review process and how we find great children’s books. Some of that audio may find its way into our Saturday show along with impromptu reviews we recorded with Tuule (someone we met in the green room) and Erin (the Producer of Daytime).

Thanks to everyone at Daytime and the folks we chatted with in the green room! And to Daytime viewers who are stopping in for the first time: Welcome!
