GARYVIDEOS – Looking Back On My Life, I remember the time I conducted a videotaped conversation with former Wood County (Wisconsin) Board Chairman Bill Goodness on the River Cities Public Access Channel in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. The interview took place after my year 2000 retirement from my News Anchor-Reporter position at WFHR Radio. The analog VHS tape recording of that interview has now been transferred to digital for viewing on computers, tablets, laptops, and wireless smartphones. One of the topics included how redistricting following the 2000 Census resulted in causing seasoned county board supervisors, including Bill Goodness, to lose their seats. The redrawn borders moved the homes of several supervisors, forcing them all to run against each other.
GARYVIDEOS – There once was a wise politician who was good enough to get re-elected umpteen times from 1970 to 2010. His name, Marlin Schneider, a wise man among politicians who started as an educator turned politician after teaching high school in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. Marlin, born in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, became a young teacher not too long out of college before getting the bug to run for a chance to be elected to represent the 72nd Assembly District in the Wisconsin State Capital. We talk about many subjects in this cable tv show which was originally seen in 2002.

During a career spanning from the mid-1960s until the year 2000, and beyond, Gary W. Morgan held thousands of broadcast radio, on-air conversations, with a variety of people, including elected officials. Many of the interviews were heard on a Central Wisconsin AM radio station. What follows is a recorded excerpt from one day in the life of the Morgan and Michaels Radio Show (a/k/a Michaels and Morgan) on WFHR in Wisconsin Rapids, WI.
