On Tuesday, December 7, 2010 at 8:35AM EST I was on the radio, FM 98.5 CKWR.
I was soooo nervous coming up to the talk. I hate talking on the phone, in fact I get panic attacks. but at the same time I was sooooo excited too. I got to talk about my blog, and being in the New York Times.
The radio personality was Jeremy Smith. He was easy to talk to and knew a lot about my blog before we talked.
The day before he called me and before he said who he was I could tell “he was the guy from the radio”. He has a definite radio voice. he told me to relax, we’re just two people chatting over green tea. it helped a lot to talk a bit before hand to just get use to it. Also the day before one of my friends calls and and said, “is that you they are talking about on the radio?” I guess they were plugging the segment the day before talking about an area women and her blog being in the NYT and that I was going to be talking the next morning. It made us all even more exciting.
The interview went very well except for my slip of mentioning a major company. They didn’t need free advertisement for me or anyone else. Thankfully Jeremy Smith took it out for me to post the interview on here. Hopefully he forgives me. 😉 I wasn’t even nervous once we started talking.
Something cool is you can listen to the radio live all day. Right now they are playing really cool Christmas music. I encourage you all to tune in.
You can listen to my interview below. It’s about 5 minutes long.
Thank you CKWR and Jeremy Smith.
