Ever since I first heard “Wolfman Jack” on the radio I’ve harbored a deep desire to host my own radio program. Now with Blog Talk Radio anyone can host their own program. My big leap into this format will take place tomorrow at 11:30am. I set up an account, which was easy enough to do, and now it is a matter of figuring out what I am going to talk about for 30 minutes. My guest tomorrow will be my brother, who just completed a B.A. in history and is set to begin a second career in teaching after 15 years in the culinary industry. Here is the link for the show and a phone number that you can use to call in with questions or comments. I have no idea what to expect, but I am hoping to have fun with it. Future programs will include interviews with historians and even call-in shows to discuss various topics raised on the blog. The show will be archived and easily accessible if you miss the broadcast.
Update 2: I just completed a 15-minute radio segment with my wife. It went really well. My brother and I are going to try and schedule an interview for tomorrow. Please let me know what you think.
Update: Well, the show didn’t go so well. Although my brother called-in I was unable to figure out how to click him in for the interview. On top of that I learned from a listener that my voice was very choppy, which I now realize was the result of using a cell phone. The format is a bit unintuitive, but I think I was able to figure it out. I deleted the episode and plan on scheduling another one for tomorrow at the same time.
