Writer Wednesday—Radio


Say THAT three times fast—I dare ya!

My first radio gig was back in the ‘70s. I was “caller number” whatever and had to sing the Big Mac song. Scored a Big Mac, too. Awesome, right?

My second one was this morning. At 6:00. Yawn.

See, I’ve been plugging . . . er, promoting . . . um, talking about, yeah, that’s it, RECYCLED! Which is probably how I sounded on WTBQ this morning.

The interview was supposed to last about 10 minutes—it felt like it, for sure, but was really only three. I called two minutes ahead of the scheduled time, as requested, stated my name, and waited, listening to the program.

Then I was on.

They asked me what kind of book, and I said dystopian. There was some patter about the word, as both DJs said they’d never heard of that and asked for a  definition . . . they asked what RECYCLED was about, and I mentioned it was third in a series and this is what happens; they asked about the main character, and they asked how I came up with the idea. You know, the salsa story. And mentioned my website.

And that was it.

So now I know, since I have two more coming up next week; different stations of course. Whew. Glad this one’s over—hopefully I’ll feel more prepared. And, too, the next one is PST, and in the afternoon too!

  1. Just wait until you’re in a radio studio, headset & mic on, and you get asked some open-ended questions…
