Tonight is a special – albeit belated – Independence Day edition of The Friddle Show!  No news tonight, just a conversation.  What are we talking about?  Gratefulness.  It’s time we as Americans re-cultivate an attitude of gratitude.   We’re more blessed than we know!

Sam Schmidt Krystal HeathOne of the great privileges of my life was the blessing of spending two years working for Sam Schmidt, former IndyCar driver and current IndyCar team owner.  This past weekend, I was able to interview Sam – he’ll share his life story with us, and this is a story you DO NOT want to miss.  Even if you don’t enjoy auto racing, you need to know Sam’s story.  You need this perspective.  Trust me.  Make sure you tune in.

We’ll wrap things up remembering the Declaration of Independence and the many patriots who founded this great country we call home.  It’s a special show direct from my heart to yours.  Tonight, 9ET/6PT on
