On the Radio

19 Feb

Monday was awesome. I had no idea it was going to happen. I love listening to the Dave Ryan Show in the morning to entertain myself while working. Dave, Falen and Steve-O always crack me up, which is a challenge when you’re sitting in a cube trying not to bust a gut.

Falen does a funny bit where she makes really obnoxious noises to annoy Dave and Steve-O. I also do the same thing with my six year-old daughter. I thought, wouldn’t it be funny if Falen and I had an annoying noises competition? It seemed especially appropriate with the winter Olympics going on now.

I emailed the show with my idea last week and didn’t hear back, so I forgot about it. Then last Sunday, I received an email from the show. They loved my idea and asked if I could come into the studio and do the bit live.

There was a nasty snowstorm Monday morning but luckily, I had the day off so the timing was perfect, even though the weather wasn’t. I arrived at the studio and the staff and interns were so nice. I was shocked at how much work goes on behind the scenes to make a radio show happen. Katie was working like a mad woman at the controls, ensuring everything would flow smoothly. She’s truly a pro and impressive.

I was brought into the studio and was surprised at how tiny it was. Dave and Falen were very welcoming and sweet. The time came to do the bit and I wasn’t nervous at all. It was like sitting around joking with your friends.

Before I knew it, the time was up. It went so incredibly fast. I had an amazing time and will never forget the experience. It reminded me of how much I enjoy being creative and entertaining people. So, my next project will be working on a podcast in addition to my blog. I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s ready for you to enjoy!

In the meantime, if you want to hear the obnoxious noises, go to daveryanshow.com, click on the Listen menu at the top of the page, click on Podcasts, and select Part 3, 2/17/14.
