In the recent PAST
Great Radio Interview, coming up on Sunday, Fathers day, on 4 of the 5 Sandusky Radio Network stations. It was the BEST radio interview I have had in 20 years!!Covered everything from EV Car Racing, Conversions, FOOL cells, Plug in Hybrids, and why my Son will not convert his Red Mustang to ELECTRIC Fathers Day Morning June 19th. A little early... Well A LOT EARLY... But what the hay.... Here are the call signs, times, and frequencies:
on KLSY (Klassy !) 92.5 FM at 5 a.m. on KIXI 880 AM, at 5:30 a.m. on KWJZ (Cool Jazz) on 98.9 FM at 6 a.m. and on KKNW 1150 AM, at 7 a.m.
And Here Small (7.5 Meg) is where Ryan, our WEB GURU will let you click and down load the interview in MP3 for those of you who do not get UP that early in the morning:
SEVA and FlexCar
It's official ! The FlexCar chapter in Seattle, is giving special membership and discounts to any one in the Seattle EV Association driving/owning an Electric Vehicle or a Neighborhood EV !
I think this is a marriage made in EV Heaven. Here is how it works. An EV owner/user signs up, takes a $50 discount, and drives to any one of many FlexCar parking lots round Seattle. Park your EV, pick up your Honda, or even a few Honda Hybrids, and drive your 50 100 150 mile trip. Some FlexCar pick-up points will even allow you to charge your 20 to 40 mile/per/charge EV while you make your 100, 200 mile trip.
I know there are other FlexCar outlets in Portland OR. and I think San Francisco too. Our local manager, Tracy Carroll, one of the original FlexCar founders, should spread the concept to their other outlets.
Here below is a Press-Release-announcement I sent to our local NPR Radio station (KUOW ) here in Seattle, a few days ago:
"The Seattle EV Association and FlexCar have teamed up to offer a winning combination to folks who wish to own an EV but often need a vehicle to go a greater distance. Special FlexCar membership discounts, as well as free parking at FlexCar pick-up locations have been offered to any SEVA member owning and operating an EV or NEV. Also in some FlexCar locations modest Re-Charging facilities may be offered as well, thereby greatly enhancing the operating characteristics of EV ownership."
AS a follow up to this, Tracy has a FlexCar customer who works at another NPR station here in the Seattle area ( KEXP 90.3 Mhz ) and Tracy and I will be interviewed on the 25th on the above subject for a program which will be aired on their local program "Sustain ability" on the 28th or 29th...(not sure)
GOOD NEWS ALL ROUND YES !!
