Radio DJ Reality Show
Reality shows are everywhere today. I remember when the first reality show, Survivor aired. OK, it’s debatable which show really was the first, but I believe that was the first to air on a major network.
I was hooked from the beginning, and to this day (or Wednesdays to be exact) continue to watch the show. It’s one of only two TV shows I watch live, The other is Sunday Morning on CBS.
Anyway, this afternoon Doug Mosher, Jim Free, some guy our Country radio station and I were tasked to put a new toner cartridge in the copy machine located on our floor. Now, I am very methodical when it comes to tasks like this. I figured it would be a breeze. Not so.
Step 1 was to find the section of the copier where the toner goes in. There are about a dozen doors on this thing, and I could not find the toner door. Doug happened to be passing by, so I asked him for help. He, of course, said he knew exactly where the toner goes. Well, not so.
He had the same issues I did. Jim and that other guy couldn’t figure it out either, Now this is why I think there should be a reality show about the antics of a radio station. If you could have seen how helpless four men can be, it would be reality show gold.
Luckily, I found the door, and Doug placed the toner cartridge in. But he pulled the tab to release the toner power too early and out it spilled onto the copier and brand new carpeting. Definitely a 3 Stooges routine. Luckily, our vacuum cleaner worked miracles and cleaned the carpet like nothing ever happened.
And that my friends, is why we are radio personalities and not rocket scientists.
