Today was the day where everything felt like it came together- the years of longing to be on radio, building up the courage to delve into radio and my inner hope that one day I will transform into Zan Rowe and live happily ever after as a Radio Queen. Today, Rosie and I hosted the show and it was possibly one of the most enjoyable hours ever.
Despite probably sounding like a nervous wreck and a deliciously horrible technical difficulty, the show went really well. Once we finally got it to play, Corey’s interview with Roj Amendi was really insightful and really well executed. Our live interview with Russell and Michael from ASRC Food Justice Truck was a really great way to approach the discourse of Asylum Seekers/Refugees by providing a way in which people can get involved by changing the way they shop. We also debuted our feature, which was received really well and even resulted in a radio caller- 2 shows in a row!
I am definitely hooked and just want to immerse myself in all things radio. Hopefully the next time I go to air, I won’t replace the word track with treat and then get all dad-jokey on the audience.
