Any CAGS wanna hear me on the Radio IN the greater Detroit area(Im a professional Radio Broadcaster) Tune into 90.9 FM between 3-6pm Im the traffic anchor. The reports are Usually at the :20 :40 and :50 Each Hour.
Im also on 107.5 FM The Rythum doing the same thing at :10 and :30 between 3:10 and 5:30. I work for a company which provides News , traffic and weather and have no relation with the stations content. Im also the Fulltime News anchor on WDTK 1400am between 12-7pm. Top and Bottom of the hours.
I'm guessing you're a Wayne Stater? Specs Howard tends to put people everywhere else but Detroit.
I did the Specs thing back in the late 90's and went to class with a lot of people that went on to 97.1. I always seemed to get the christian radio stations, though. Last gig I did was weekends at 1500am (I think!) and I left because that I was my second job - my "main" job was I had just started working for Big Blue making about six times what any other station wanted to pay me, plus OT, bennies, 401(k), etc. Not a hard decision to switch...
I do kinda miss it at times, because it was such a fun job - and most people don't realize that you're usually always busy. When I am feeling masochistic, I sometimes consider looking for an overnight shift in addition to my ~50 hr a week day job.
The funniest on-air thing that ever happened to me was I was filling in on the Fourth of July and while I was on the air, I heard a knock at my door. The person I was filling in for NEVER told me she had scheduled an in-studio guest for an interview and CD giveaway. So I fumbled my way through the interview (asking the most basic questions) and decided to give away a few CDs. I said the fifth person to call would win the first of the guest's CDs...and no one called! I felt embarrassed for the guest and when the phone finally rang, I announced them the winner. (Only to find out later that the station never sent the CDs out to them!)
I know...way off topic (and a several month old post), but sometimes, I do kinda miss radio...
