Random Radio Episode 001

23 11 2003

So it is in the books. Earlier this morning we did our first radio show.
It came naturally and at one point Davin forgot he was on the radio and had to catch himself after a little vocabulary slip up. Adrian did a hilarious bit with Sven. Davin, Jim and I were in stitches in the control room. Speaking of Jim he tagged along and fit in nicely. We are hoping to get him onboard for some superstylee writing.
As Adrian posted earlier today, we definately were random, but personally in the future I would like to see a little more structure and or planning. Not because I think we were too wild, actually quite the opposite. I think we just need to plan ahead so we can let ourselves go knowing we have something already planned to fall back on. I also think knowing when to end a bit and move on is key. I don’t think you ever want to get to a point when you realize you should have stopped ten minutes ago.
As expected we just let it roll. Just let things happen and go with the flow. Nearing the final hour we started to hit our stride but were also aware that it was nearly too late to do anything about it. Miraculously right at the strike of half past 5 we all recognized a physical malaise. Mentally I was sort of on a second wind, but the yawns started to creep up on us. With that aside, the time flew by for all of us. I had a great time and can’t wait to do it again next week.
I think as soon as we get a couple more shows under our belt we will have a good feel for what works and what doesn’t. I really want to be proud of what we do, and for me that is not just having a radio show, it is having a GOOD radio show.
And we will.
