Another year, another State Fair excursion
I always look forward to late August when my wife and I can make our annual trek out to the Minnesota State Fair. To be honest, I have a normal routine when I go to the fair. My main interests are my favorite local radio shows as well as partaking in my favorite "entrees" (Cheese curds, deep fried Spam curds and pronto pups top the list).
But this year featured an added bonus! As I visited the broadcast site of Dan Cole's afternoon radio show on sports radio AM 1130 KFAN, they announced an opportunity for listeners to fill in on the 1:35-1:50 segment. Given that I'm an aspiring radio host, my ears perked up. All one had to do was enter his/her name in a drawing. With only six entrants, my chances were pretty good.
Sure enough, myself and another listener named Doug had our names drawn!
For 15 minutes we bantered about sports and even had fun at the expense of some audience members. For the audio of our appearance, click here. It starts about two-thirds of the way into the podcast.
I had an absolute blast and even received a ringing endorsement from the show host himself! Could this lead to other guest appearances in the future?
