Woo Hoo, I'm Going Airborne!

Not in the literal sense, however. Tonight I'll be on the radio with a few of my friends. Back in college I was a member of the college radio station, and today they're having an alumni day. Folks who are still local can go on the air for an hour or two and do whatever they'd like (within FCC regulations, of course!). We'll be playing all of the alternative stuff from the 1980s that was on the playlist when we were in school. It's going to be a blast! As a "life member" of the station, I could have a regular air slot if I wanted to. I did, too, for a while. In 1998, I started an '80s show, but had to give it up four years later when I started working again and going back to school to become certified as a teacher. Now, with my commute into the city, I still don't have time. Therefore, I plan to really enjoy myself tonight!!!

My big thing was going to be to have a radio career and eventually get into doing voiceovers for commercials, documentaries and the like. However, what really held me back was the fact that I married young (right out of college). Those who want to really make it in radio have to be able to move around a lot (at least in the early days), and I obviously tied myself down early. Regrets? A few, but nothing I lose sleep over. I've thought about trying to break into voiceovers but the competition is horrendous, and I don't have the time or energy to truly pursue it.

Don't you just love these walks down memory lane?

UPDATE: Click below to see me in the studio. Don't I look professional? (heh)

Now let's have some details on how it went. How exciting.

It was too darn short, that's how it went! Seriously, we had a great time. I had a photo taken of me at the controls and I'm thinking about posting it. It's been about 3 years since I was last on air, but it's like riding a bike. So much music; so little time. And I saw a few other alums that I hadn't seen in quite some time. One guy drove up from Baltimore just to be on the air at the station for one hour, and my friend Rudi drove two hours from Rhode Island. That tells you how much the experience meant to a lot of us.

That sounds like it was some experience. Thanks for the update and look forward to the control room pic!!

Cool! Now every time I read one of your posts I'll have to imagine one of those smooth radio voices.
