show 153 – tawd brings the rawk

Don’t let John’s suaveness and debonair on-air persona fool you. Radio shows are tough! You have to plan sometimes three steps ahead, with setting up songs to play, running commercials, and all that. In addition, it’s good to sound relaxed and have things to say when you need to say them. There’s a lot of juggling going on all the time.

Extra special thanks to John for allowing me to bring the rawk while he’s on a Disney cruise, partying with Belle and Sleeping Beauty. And yes, he WAS partying with Belle and Sleeping Beauty. Dude. . .hook me up. . .? Belle c’est tres francaise, non? Elle est mon favourite. (?) Non, je ne parlez pas francais. OK, I’m done. 🙂
