A little bit of random radio

When I was a morning show co-host, we had a local lady known as Susan, the Singing Psychic. She would come into the studio once a month and sing readings to listeners. In the radio world, she was gold. The phones lit up all morning until she left.

Our general manager hated the days she came in because she took up so much air time that we played very few songs on those mornings. But, he understood that she was popular, and phone calls meant people were listening.

Then, one day a client complained and threatened to pull his advertising, and we couldn't have her anymore.

The only thing I hate more than people who wave their money to get what they want is the people who give them what they want and take the money.


My headphones are unmistakably mine because the ear pads are crusted with makeup from my cheeks.
The right ear more than the left because I often slide that side off to answer the phone and then slide it back.

Just a little something you probably didn't want to know about radio.

You're welcome.
