Jim Swift spotted in the wild, Vancouver, BC
Folksy Austin KXAN tv personality Jim Swift was on vacation in Vancouver BC when we spotted him in the line at Vancouver customs and we had a delightful chat with him. He does the show “On the Porch” which you may have seen, it highlights interesting, sometimes quirky people and places in and around Austin. He is shown with his wife, Austin artist Katy Nail who also was delightfully friendly to us.
What friendly people to ease the tension of a customs line! We love our Jim Swift, his humorous and poignant tv vignettes are comfort food for the minds of Austinites. When I pointed the little orange ipod nano video camera at him he noticed, being the consummate tv onscreen pro, that my finger was blocking the nano lens a bit (look for thumb at top of video).
