On the radio!
So yesterday I was on my way out to Damien to pick up Stephen. I was listening to KFWB and the host was talking about Ted Williams, the guy they found living on the streets and gave him an announcer contract and a house. And he's now in rehab after supposedly being clean for 2 years. He wanted people to call in with their comments. Well I'd been at lunch with Lisa just prior to this and we'd talked about this guy, so I couldn't resist picking up the phone and calling. And guess what? I got right through! I talked to the screener, was put on hold for a minute and was on live radio! The host asked me what I thought and I told him I thought it was ridiculous that they would give these contracts to this guy. I told him I thought it was wrong that all these kids go to college, doing all the right things to break into this industry and a great job is taken away by a homeless man that has a million kids that he's walked away from, a criminal record and a self admitted drug addict and alcoholic. I told him I thought if they wanted to take a chance on him they could have done it how everyone else would start, at the bottom. I think it was all just a chance for publicity, but I think it's wrong. All in all it was very funny to pick Stephen up and whisper to him to be quiet because I was on the radio!!
