Happy Thanksgiving to FIRST PERSON Listeners!
On recent car trips through several states including Ohio and Maryland, I loved seeing farmers in the fields of the Midwest harvesting corn and soybeans. It made me think how thankful we are for the American farmer and the abundance we enjoy in this country. So, I invited my friend Max Armstrong as our FIRST PERSON guest this week. Max, recently retired, is one of the most recognizable voices in American agriculture serving in both radio and TV for over 50 years. Together, we salute the farmers of our land at this Thanksgiving-time.
From his boyhood of growing up on a farm near Owensville, Indiana, to his years in Chicago radio and television, Max’s background and experience have developed to give him the perspectives and industry access to produce his insightful broadcasts. He maintains close ties with agriculture and proudly displays his boyhood 1953 Farmall Super H tractor at parades, fairs and festivals.
Max is the author of the recently released More Stories from the Heartland, a follow up to his earlier book. You’ll find the book in print, kindle, and audio form at www.MaxArmstrongBook.com. He was also a FIRST PERSON guest in 2015 and you can hear that earlier interview here.
