Valuable Lessons I Learned Today
A) Go earlier than 7:10 to find a parking spot on Thursday night.
B) Sometimes hosts are not hosts, but actually recordings. Check that out when you walk in so you're not waiting outside the door (just letting the host do his thing) until three minutes before your show.
C) CR = Control Room, not Community Radio. Turning that knob down does not make it quieter for everybody listening, just you.
D) Press start to play the commercials. Do not let the commercials win.
E) It is fantastic when some fellow you don't even know calls in and asks about Two Hours Traffic and then tells you he is really enjoying your show.
