Your Blogress On The Radio
On Monday I'm supposed to do a radio interview with a local morning show; it's scheduled to take place at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time. According to the program manager, or whoever it was I spoke to, it'll be streamed live; if you're interested, you can check their Website here.
And if any of you know how to record a copy of my interview, to send to me, I'd be very appreciative.
I suspect I'm going to HATE how I sound. Like all people, when I hear my own self speak my voice resonates through my skull and sounds much richer and deeper than it is. I'd always thought I spoke with a nice sexy contralto voice, until I heard the recording I made for the phone-sex line and was horrified to discover I'd apparently inhaled a blimpful of helium without realizing it.
I also suspect they're going to ask me to do The Voice, which is why the over-the-phone interview will not take place at my desk, which is in a noisy, crowded newsroom, but at my boss' desk, located in an office with a shuttable door.
EDIT: Check out the comments thread, where Ron Hardin was good enough to post a link to a recording he made of the interview. I think I generally sounded all right, even though I stumbled over a few sentences. "Less ickier?" Hmmph--and me a holder of two English degrees.
Too early in the morning. That's my excuse.
