I had a radio nightmare the other night.
I'm not sure if work-related nightmares occur in other professions, since radio is the only thing I've ever done. So maybe you can share yours...
But I DO know that everyone who's spent some time in this biz - has radio nightmares. I've had them as long as I've been in radio - almost 19 years. Mine aren't a recurring dream but retain the same basic elements: the equipment's changed and I don't know how to use it, the station's moved and no one told me, dead air, I'm late for work, I open my mouth to speak and nothing comes out.
The other night I dreamed they changed our cd players. The new equipment was a black tube, the width of a straw. You had to slap it, to power it up (insert joke here). Then, moving like a snake it would find a cd, flip it out of it's case then suction itself to the cd itself to pick it up. Once it had the cd sucked up it would hand it off to a mechanical hand. Who would take it and place it in a cd player.
What the hell, man? Anyway. In my dream I was freaking out because this new equipment took too much time to get a song on the air. Then I woke up and discovered I had peed the bed.
Just makin' sure you're still listening, freaks.
Anyway - that's that.
Also, will someone please tell me what the deal is with getting zits in your 30's? It seems not right to have zits at the same time you're starting to get wrinkles.
Thank you and good day.
