Ok. After my last show I was very excited because I felt that this was the first time that things ran smoothly. Ok, I didn’t get the levels quite right so there was some screeching throughout the show BUT the dead air between songs has become almost non existent so I’m proud of that.
Picture me in the studio in front of this switchboard, I’m making sure the levels are right for all of the input channels, I’m using audio from youtube on the computer, playing music from my computer, reaching over to my left and playing music from my laptop as well as answering the phone and actually paying attention to my call in guests and interviewing them. I have to remember what’s coming up next WHILE I’m talking and getting ready for it – all at the same time! By the time I’m done, I’m energized but exhausted. But..I really love it!
Last week was my first week having an entertainment reporter. Now that my lil sis heard that report, she says she wants to do one so I think I’ll give her a shot and see who I like better. I also met this guy who is so funny that I invited him to come be a guest comedian on my show. He says he’ll think about it, but I hope he does because he’s ridiculous and I’m sure everyone will love him.
Listening to the audio for last week’s show made me laugh so much! Not only was I proud that I now have an intro jingle. I am so happy that others are joining me in my vision. Now all I need is another producer to help come up with ideas and book guests for the show.
What’s funny to me is that I really LIKE the sound of my voice on the radio. I like my style and I hope others do too. BUT…when I’m interviewing the guest and I can’t think of a comment or question, I realize that I repeat what they just said. LOL! It sounds so dumb to me! LOL! But I’m sure I’ll fix it in time.
My guest almost cried during the interview and I got a little misty eyed too, but we laughed most of the time and I’m excited about doing more shows. Let’s see where this leads me!
