It was indeed my pleasure to get to be the fan/listener Guest DJ for an hour, on KSWD 100.3 The Sound FM, on Sunday January 22, 2011.
After submitting my 10 songs of choice through the stations website, it was an email sent by programmer Eric Holmes that informed me I was picked and I would indeed be getting my turn to play make believe DJ. I arrived at the station on January 5, 2011 for the noon taping. The entire station staff was as above and beyond nice as nice can be. They took me on a tour of the station, introducing me to many different staff members as we walked through the halls. They took me into the actual DJ booth as DJ Andy Chanley was on the air and showed me the control panel and where it all happens.
It was then into a recording studio room where I met Program Director Bill LaTour. It was Bill that handed me my script and what would be the format and layout for my hour long taping. With an introduction and short bio of myself, we preceded with introductions of each song until we got to the closing portion of my 10 song set. Though very nervous, and thinking I sounded simply dreadful, Bill assured me not to worry as he would dub in the songs, mix the show, and cut and splice though all my mistakes and the end result would be something that both the station and I would be very proud of.

I must thank EVERYONE at 100.3 The Sound. Especially the Program Director Dave Beasing, Bill LaTour, Eric Holmes, Andy Chanley and the entire staff for such kindness, generosity and for simply making me feel like someone very special. I had a complete BLAST!!!!
Once again, a huge THANK YOU to 100.3 The Sound.
