It may not seem like it, but I actually lose quite a bit of sleep over Radio Citrus. I want to bring it back. Ever since that day when the steering wheel fell off my Subaru, I got out of the habit and never got back to doing the show.
To quote Santa Claus, “I just kept putting off, and I was too embarrassed” to start it back up.
And I got busy.
The truth is, I got a small promotion: I could step inside a radio studio. And another: I could touch the radio control board. And another: I was in charge of behind-the-scenes producing for a national talk show (that was a bit of a jump). And I had some bad dating experiences with some really dumb girls. Anyway, that’s kept me really busy the last few years.
Now back in the 90s a few promotions would mean I’d be buying a house or something now. Maybe even buying a wife and kids to go along with it, too. (Anyone know where I can order those?) But in this economy, my two promotions mean I can finally upgrade from “renting a room” to “renting an entire (tiny) basement.”
As my radio “career” (“career” used in the same way Sandwich Artist is a “career“) progressed, and I began to producer better and better talk radio, I began to see Radio Citrus in a crappier and crappier light. The only part of Radio Citrus I feel proud of is the enjoyment you got out of it. Enough to leave nearly a DOZEN comments, send emails, and even leave voicemails on a phone number I no longer control because I am too cheap to pay it.
I’m willing to be embarrassed:
I want to bring Radio Citrus back, but in a better way. There’s no point doing a 2-hour weekly radio show for a web site that’s pretty much dead. Blessed be its name. At my age my parents were buying houses, building careers, all that jazz. I just can’t bring myself to create a podcast for 14-year-olds.
So if I was to start up some type of “few days a week” short podcast/show, what could we talk about?
- Our generation is totally hosed. At least for now.
- Both political parties are evil.
- Mitt Romney has hair plugs. They’re just expensive “good ones.”
- Barack Obama hasn’t brushed his teeth in 11 days.
- How LIBOR is like Anson Fullerton on Burn Notice.
- How to replace a steering wheel on a ’95 Subaru Legacy L.
