Beekeeping Promo Flashback

This video goes back about 15 years, but a friend asked me about the 6 minutes of local fame I experienced on the Dave Kelly morning show, so I looked up the film. The quality of the tape (and my acting) aren’t all that great, but it made me think about honey promotion and how we sometimes have to stick our necks out a wee bit to draw attention to something good. It was worth the effort to do the show!

I’m not sure how I got on The Big Breakfast, it wasn’t my choice. But I was head of the Calgary bee club at the time, so it must have been a favour to someone somewhere. Anyway, hope you have a smile from this. Don’t miss the expression on Dave Kelly’s face at about 3:00 into the video. He was quite a sport and a great host for the show.  By the way, the girl in the video is my older daughter, Erika. She’s still working in bees and honey.

  1. Didn’t look like you were acting at all. I think you did a good job. The guy in the orange shirt, however, needs to take it easy on the caffeine.
