Recently I had the pleasure of meeting one of the most iconic individuals in the “Green” community, Gary Walker, The King of Green. Gary and his wife Trish host the only all Green radio program here in Kansas City, “Going Green with the King”, as well as maintain the first all “Green” commercial janitorial business in Kansas City, Magic Touch Cleaning.
When I met with Gary to discuss my being a guest on his radio program, I immediately realized why they call him the King. As soon as I stepped into their production studio, Gary greeted me with a big smile on his face and he was wearing a huge pair of gold Elvis glasses. His jovial attitude toward his production crew, his wife, and myself made it really enjoyable to be a part of his radio program. He made the interview fun, not nerve racking.
Over the course of the next hour or so we discussed emerging trends in lighting concepts, design, and how to overcome some lighting challenges with simple design concepts for various real world applications. The radio program will air today, 3/4/11 at 12:30 p.m. (central) on KCXL Kansas City or stream it live at www.kcxl.com. In case you are reading this and you didn’t get a chance to hear it live, many of Gary’s radio programs are archived on iTunes.
