Even before I was born, I was in the radio business. My mother and father had a morning show while I was still in my first apartment, or, what I later learned is called a "womb." I can remember going to the radio station every day after summer school... yeah, I went to summer school, wanna fight about it? I would watch the DJs push buttons and talk into the microphone and I'd think to myself... "Now THIS is something I want to do." As I grew up on the mean streets of Cumberland Center (Go GREELY!), i never lost the dream to be able to be on the air. Then one day, my big chance came. The overnight guy had quit, so the Program Director had no choice but to put me on the radio. I was his only hope.. I felt like Obi Wan Kanobi... ya know, the old guy from "Star Wars" who basically gives up the fight and gets killed by Darth Vader. Wait, what was I trying to say? Oh yeah. It was the highly coveted, hard to come by 2am to 6am show. I fell asleep several times, but somehow got the job. Ever since then I've been doing what I love... sleeping on the job.
