Amarillo by Morning

Posted on Friday, August 18th, 2006.


We headed off to Amarillo, through the Oklahoma Panhandle and into the heart of the Texas Panhandle. Rick Hicks, Executive Director of High Plains Public Radio, drove the trailer across the plains where you could always see at least 5 miles in every direction. As you can see, the station is very appropriately named. booth shot.0
We arrived safely in Amarillo and we’re greeted by members of the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce, our new home in Texas. Several generous chamber members gave up their parking spots for the booth. We geared up for what was to be a very busy opening day!
