Tonight's Show... Lots of Rookie Mistakes...

From Brent

You just gotta laugh sometimes. I'm still learning how to work all the details of doing a radio show...

I tried to do a prerecorded show and uploaded it wrong. Then I set it up wrong and it didn't start on time.

Then... I got the prerecorded show scheduled right, and the uploaded sound file started, then stopped after a minute. By the time I figured it out, the show started 5 minutes late.

Then... and here's the real embarrassment, I had my host microphone on while the recording was going and was talking to my wife about the problems happening and THAT was going out over the audio too.

Thankfully, my brother Kelly was listening and he has a radio background. He called me and said "hey knucklehead... your microphone is on!"

The good news is (I think)... I probably ran off all the listeners who gave up by that time! Thank the Lord for His unexpected blessings! No listeners, I don't have to feel so stupid.

Except that I just told everyone what I did. Oh well... you just gotta laugh at yourself sometimes.

That's funny Brent! We all make bonehead mistakes sometimes! :-) I made a major one just this week! I am not willing to share though! :-)

I did quit by that time. But I am going to listen to the prerecorded show because I, like anyone else who follows the blogs, really want to hear what you have to say. Thanks, Brent!

Too funny! Don't feel bad...I used to work in radio and things like that even happen to the pros.

Laughing with you Brent. We've all made "dumb mistakes". Wish I had been listening. I would have let you know that your microphone was on.

Here is a good laugh along those lines....
Yesterday, at the very opening of the 6th grade play at our school, the lights went down everyone got quite and over the sound system the entire audience hears "Oh Crap". I guess that students was not quite ready to perform but his microphone was :)
