The headphones went back on today: For the first time in some 13 years, I did a radio program for which I was paid.
The two-hour program on The Eagle (KSSZ-FM in Columbia, Missouri) went pretty smoothly, considering that when I last set foot in a radio studio on a regular basis, CDs were just becoming popular. The high point was a phone call from our next door neighbor in St. Louis County who just happened to be driving through town on his way to Kansas City (thanks, Pete!).
My goal today was just to make it through to the end. Did that, so Monday I’ll start trying to get my legs under me and actually present some content.
It’s like having a punch line when you tell a joke: It makes things so much more interesting for the listener.
