Walking to the stage. Walking between guest artist rooms. Walking to get paperwork signed. Show days are busy days for NPR’s Mountain Stage with Larry Groce, a program that turns a series of four or five live performances into a single two-hour radio broadcast for over 175 stations across the nation. As assistant producer, my job is to introduce and announce the program, and just generally make sure the show runs smoothly. In other words, I get my 10,000 steps in long before show day is done. And it was during a recent Mountain Stage walk-around (I would wager the 6,343 step mark) that I found myself getting tapped on the shoulder by a 30-something-old man attending the show taping. Let’s call him Bob.
