From a fellow Public Radio Slave...
What's the best way to start a Monday morning? We all must begin our week by checking the voicemail; seeing what came in over the weekend. I started my day with one message, simple and to the point:
"If you take my advice, you'll eat a big bowl of sh****t."
That's it. No suggestions about why I should do this. Was it Diane Rehm's voice? Was it because you heard our underwriting credit about the symphony?
So I wrote down the phone number. I remember when I used to spend my Friday and Saturday nights prank calling people. It was great fun, but I was 11. This guy was at least 45. And we were prank calling old ladies, not radio station answering machines.
