WWTCD What Would The Colonel Do? The KFC Grilled Chicken Was Nowhere To Be Found

The big day is here! No, it isn’t the moment the beautiful lady neighbor agreed to go out with me, but on my calender in bold it states “Kentucky Fried Chicken KFC Grilled-Chicken Product Launch.”

Thus far the test marketing had been superlative. Containing less fat, calories, and cholesterol the new product on the block was ready to take a front counter seat as a healthier alternative to the fast food artery clogging ingredients.

This morning I am the first person through the door at the local KFC. In my possession is a hungry appetite and a pen and paper for my own review. As I break the land speed record from the front door to the service line I was delivered a blow to the head. Not all locations regardless of the population of the town have been set up to offer the new grilled chicken sandwich for sale. Perplexed as usual I could barely utter the words to the polite employee behind the counter. How can this be with all the hype and time for the product launch?

The word communication would be the answer, sort of. As it turns out not only did all the KFC’s not receive the okay to offer the new product today but the employee had no information as to when they will be approved.

In no way did she act indifferent about the situation. It sounded as if her goal was to try the product as soon as possible. I got handed an address and phone number (which in no way were they obligated to do) of the closest Kentucky Fried Chicken location that offers the grilled chicken.

Since the corporation didn’t articulate their thoughts and game plan correctly the local branch lost several customers today. When I left the premises a husband and wife, and three co-workers were right not far behind.

I learned many phenomenal lessons from my parents (missed more each day) and one of them is to be proud of your community and try to keep money within a close proximity of where you live. Each dollar spent helps keep the economic blood flowing and the publicity of the town positive.

These words are something I hope that the representatives of Kentucky Fried Chicken heard today. Every intention was made to support a new product and do so within a few miles from the home. The best laid plans. The rest of the quote we can finish later, because I’m hungry.

Not speaking and writing your best isn’t as funny as this video.  Enjoy it.

Thanks!

How do you feel?  It’s Friday! 

Welcome aboard our corner of the globe. A fantastic day outside and it was as well in 1972 as the Airmachine fly’s back to hear the Jefferson Airplane perform in the park.  Not any park but Central. 

Please remember at any moment on an Aircast it can be a rare memory from the Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, KBC, Wooden Ships, Marty Balin, Paul Kantner to name several. 

Hope Friday will be fantastic and I look forward to hearing you later on as our flight returns to Rock And Roll Island. 

All the best,

Welcome to very early Friday: 

Thanks for flying with your host Craig Fenton.  How are things? 

Two really strong ones from the Airmachine as we go back to 1989 for the reunion and the old Airplane favorites are part of the journey.  It’s a great summer night August of 89 and after 17 years the J.A. will take flight for a handful of US shows which started in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and ended in Washington, D.C. 

The memories linger forever! Joined by Peter Kaukonen, Tim Gorman, Randy Jackson, and Kenny Aronoff the plane has plenty of fuel and is flying nicely.  Enjoy! 

I’ll look forward to hearing you later on. 

Have a fantastic day! 

All the best,

craig

Hello and welcome to Thursday night: 

How are you feeling this evening?  Have a cool one from the vault as we head to 1989 to fly over a boat that may not be the most secure but is never going away.

 Please remember to look at the right side of the page and enjoy the rare Jack Casady photo from 1966.  Herb Greene took a gem of a shot and it has not seen the light of day until today! Please check the myriad of updates the past month.  From rare photos to music from the Rock Tent Vaults, it is all there for you fine passengers. I have to head back inside the tent to pay my rent but I’ll look for you later on. 

Have a fantastic Friday,

Hello there: 

Spencer we miss you.  I was glad I got an Airmail from a Spencer fan that wanted to hear a couple of tracks from the Rock Cave Vaults. I had to make sure there was one more flight before I fall asleep on the circus tent floor.  The 15 hours without internet service was brutal.  As an author that enjoys answering all the Airmails and giving you fine passengers the music from the archives, when you can’t communicate you really do feel as if the plane is grounded.  Thanks for your patience yesterday. 

Congratulations to Yankee pitcher Andy Pettitte on his career win number 200 last night.  It doesn’t open the door to Cooperstown for him but he has had a solid career.  Yanks are making it an interesting last 10 games or so.  To overtake Boston isn’t looking good since the Red Sox play Tampa Bay next.   What a loss by the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday.  They were right on the heels of the Mets and lost to Cards 2-1. 

Thanks for hanging out with the Airplane Man and have a great Thursday! 

All the best,
