I was a small-town girl. It was the field trip to the radio station that thrilled my little eleven-year-old heart. There it was, five thousand watts of crystal-clear power… it was a daytime-only radio station, the voice of our town.
One look into that studio and I was hooked. I got a tape recorder and practiced doing newscasts, writing exciting stories of neighborhood gossip. I practiced my commercials, imitating TV ads for Miss Clairol. In the seventh grade, I entered a speech contest and won three of the four categories. The judges were the owners of that radio station. Within a week of winning the speech contest I had my first on-air job: school news and sports, taped weekly.
By the time I was in high school I had worked into a full-time part-time position at the radio station. I wrote afternoon newscasts, wrote, and produced commercials. I took the empty soda pop bottles back for the refund. Six days a week I was at the station. Six days a week I was happy! It’s been over 25 years, and fourteen stations since Mrs. Davis’s Girl Scout troop walked through the doors of that first radio station. Today, my show isn’t on a five-thousand-watt daytime AM station, but the thrill of the microphone hasn’t disappeared. Radio is still my first love.
