Just a really quick diversion from my series on Really Really Scary Things to tell everyone about my upcoming radio appearance on KCPR 91.3FM in San Luis Obispo this coming Saturday night.
Years and years ago I had a series of interviews with Apple Computer (37, in fact!) and one of the questions I was asked went something like this:
Interviewer: This company has more money than God, and you’ll probably make a lot of money working here. If you suddenly had a million dollars, what would you do?
As someone who has quite literally interviewed thousands of engineering candidates, I knew this to be a completely loaded question, and the expected overly earnest answer goes something like this: Oh! Of course! I’d keep working and writing computer software, because that’s my first love, followed by several exaggerated nods of the head.
Not me. Without a moment of hesitation, my face lit up in a wide grin and I replied:
Me: I’d go back and work in radio, because that was the best job I ever had and I wasn’t ever paid a dime!
The last time I was on the air was 2001 when I shared a two hour shift with my friend Dawn Roznowski at a reunion of our old college radio station in San Luis Obispo, California. Since ten years have passed since that now legendary performance (he said with only a wee bit of exaggeration), this coming weekend I’ll be attending yet another alumni weekend. Dawn and I will be pairing up yet again for two hours of incredibly cool music and witty banter, and everyone out there has a chance to tune in over the internet to listen in!
Here’s the scoop!
Date: Saturday, September 24, 2011
Time: 6:00 to 8:00 PM (that’s Pacific time, kids)
Link: Listen Live!!
You’ll also be able to make requests by calling us live at (805) SLO-KCPR, but be forewarned… Both Dawn and I are selecting hours and hours of music in advance that we’ll be hauling up to the station on CD, iPods and computers, so your best bet to make a request is to just post it in comments, below. Come on, give it a shot!
