Three and a half years ago I took part in my first radio telethon. The goal was to talk for about 1/3 of my hour and a half long show and solicit those sad and lonely college radio listeners into giving money to the station. I got pretty emotional as it approached the end of my show (5am), but I like to think I made a difference, if even in a small way.
Unprepared? Slightly. Awkward? More than a bit. In any event, I enjoy the sound of my own high pitched radio voice so much that I hope you do too.
For the record, I stopped being scared of the mic. This made me quite a bit more toolish, but better. Just putting that out there.
