Thanks to a neat opportunity offered to me by an incredibly nice human being, you have the chance to cringe in horror at the sound of my voice coming through your speakers! No, it's not another one of my rambling audioblog entries.
I'm gonna be on the radio, ma!
This Friday, I have a short (as in 3 1/2 minutes) commentary on the show Metro Connection on WAMU 88.5 FM, American University's exceptional public radio station here in DC. Metro Connection runs 1-2 p.m. EST on Friday (it will be replayed a couple of times over the weekend.) My short summer rant will be at the end of the show. If you live in the DC area, you can hear me growling from your radio dial. If you're out of town (or just love your computer speakers), you can hear me on WAMU's live Internet broadcast at www.wamu.org.
About an hour after the show airs, it will be up on the WAMU website, so you can access my little rant-let at your leisure. Just follow the links here. That way, if you live someplace like Coolum Beach, Australia, you don't have to listen to me in the middle of the night.
I know this is just something little, but for me, it's very exciting. This is my first time doing radio. And, more importantly for me, this is the first time I've been paid to be a writer. Small moment though it may be, it still tickles me pink.
A little radio signal, plus
A handful of sparklers, and
A little of this...
Makes for three minutes of rant.
