Alli Truttman’s Wicked Plan; Local, Local, Local TV with Tom Fawbush

Wicked Marketer

I learned about bedsheets this week from a Louisville entrepreneur who has a classic entrepreneurial tale. Listen as Alli Truttman explains how she got the idea of creating sheets that would help her get a good night’s sleep despite night sweats. She’s a delightful personality as well, and tells the story of Wicked Sheets with enthusiasm.

I also talk with Tom Fawbush, a Louisville media veteran who is behind some innovative programming at WBNA-TV, the only locally-owned TV station in town. I talked to him at the WBNA studios at Fern Valley Road.

In the news, it’s a week before the GOP primary for governor, and James Comer, Hal Heiner and Matt Bevin are neck and neck coming down the home stretch. Meanwhile, the likely Democratic opponent in the fall, Jack Conway, is getting his name in the news by filing a lawsuit against Marathon over gas prices. And $8 million. That’s how much John Calipari stands to make in a single year if he signs a contract extension at the University of Kentucky. This weekend there are places to walk around and drink beer on Bardstown Road and St. Matthews, and the PGA Seniors Championship is taking place up the road in French Lick. Thanks for downloading a great episode of the Rusty Satellite Show.

Let’s welcome a new sponsor to the show — Snelling Staffing. Need a job – call Snelling at 502-814-9800.

  1. I really enjoyed your show. It was the first time I had listened. I didn’t know you had a show. I really enjoyed it. Thanks so much for sharing. The sheets were a great idea and story–will pass it on. 🙂
