Marquette – 01/11/12 – How can a guy be So-o-o-o-o-o-o MEAN??? Northern Meats’ owner Glenn Andrews has been a regular guest appearing on air on Sunny 101.9’s Wednesday morning “Shopping Show” for almost two years. I arrive to the studio at my routine time of 8:30 a.m. and see Glenn’s truck already parked in our lot. I think to myself, “Wow, Glenn’s here early!” For the past 20 weeks I’ve had the privilege of writing posts for his website, SmokehouseGlenn.com on the weekly product sample Glenn has Brought in to feature on the Shopping Show. “Uh-oh, if Glenn’s here with samples this early, there won’t be any left for my post photo!!!”
Turns out that the Major re-scheduled guests for the the show and didn’t save a spot for our ‘custom cut butcher” of Marquette!!! Ahhhhh!!! Shut down the station; pull the plug!!! Wednesday is not going to be the same. The studio doesn’t contain it’s weekly Wednesday inviting aroma of freshly cooked meat made personally by Glenn that morning. This is more then any guy can start.
Glenn has been an avid supported of the Marquette Electricians and Detroit Red Wings – Hockey… a wonderful common ground that both Glenn and I share!!! Several mornings, we have gotten off on a discussion tangent on the topic of the previous night’s NHL games instead of focusing on his featured weekly sample item. So, with no featured item to sample and write about, I felt just like the Red Wings OR the Flyers would feel after their string of 20 consecutive wins has ended with a LOSS!!! Maybe next week, my friend…I will look forward to next Wednesday’s visit. As the saying goes, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”; well, so does the palette, Glenn; so does the palette!!!!
