Written in first person by JD Deckard:
I’m not typically a nervous person. With the exception of the bad beat blow up I’m as low key as they come. However, the night before the biggest interview I’ve ever done (not trying to find work) I find myself lying in bed staring at the ceiling. My mind is racing in anticipation of a moment that is much more important to me than Thom!
The story begins several years ago as Thom Abraham begins an afternoon sports talk show on 106.7 The Fan. Thom’s show is on opposite of George Plaster’s very structured hour-long breakdown of important topics to him (Braves, Braves and more Braves). A man with a Yankee accent and since of humor is exactly what Nashville needs to breathe life into a boring drive home from work. I listen whenever possible and begin to mimic his famous catchphrase “good job by you.” This phrase eventually makes it into the AGP glossary after being used over and over by Troy Steffy and me.
