Nailed it !

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about my upcoming trial with a commercial Darwin radio station and how I was scared I would totally screw up. Well I totally nailed it !!  They offered me a job driving ‘ Black Betty ‘ a black van loaded with free shit – except on air obviously I have to say ‘free stuff ‘  😉

I almost blew it last Thursday when I was supposed to go in for training at 6.45 am …… and woke up at 7.15 am. Not good when you haven’t even officially started ! Luckily its Darwin and everyone is pretty chilled up here. Matty , the guy I was supposed to meet at 6.45am , kindly offered to meet me yesterday instead .

There is no excuse for 5 and a half hours late .. unless you have been kidnapped by Zoo animals and have a Gazelle dancing on your chest .. hey I ve been in weirder situations 😉   (audio is fine after 2 sec’s)

I was so wound up I woke up at 2am and scared of missing the alarm again was lying in bed wide awake until 5.30 am. Last night was even worse , I awoke at 1.30 am and again could not get back to sleep. Finally I managed to drift off only to have a terrible nightmare which involved me waking up at 7am to a phone call from my new boss yelling at me that I was crap and he no longer wanted me to work for him.

Luckily this did not happen in real life and I managed to get through my first Hot 100 crossover without swearing once.

Yay for me.

  1. Oh man, I get so nervous when I have an “early call” that involves something important like work. I’m always afraid I’ll sleep right through.

    • It was one of my worst nightmares .. until it came true .. now I’m just praying I don’t turn up in my PJ’s .. or worse naked ! 😉

  2. If that van is ever in the Detroit area I would like some free Hot 100 Sh*t
