I neglected to mention what I’ve been up to the past few weeks and the radio (and now podcast) I’m apart of now. We’re called The Lost Dial, my comrades are called the Lost Dial Crew… or The LD Crew… or just the crew…
What are we about? Well, anything newsworthy or worth talking about. We aim for the morning drive style of talk radio, giving you news and fact in an informal and amusing way. We have our opinions and we aren’t afraid to voice them. The show was conceived from the leader of the crew, Mike D. He’s joined by co-hosts C-Loss (Chris) and myself. Our producer is Carolyn who sometimes joins in on the banter. She’s often heard in the background either laughing or throwing in witty remarks from the couch or anywhere else around the studio. Pete and Sharon the Cougar give us charity news every week, and Haley gives us local music reports.
The show’s grassroots of The Lost Dial come from our graduating class of Connecticut School of Broadcasting. We had to do a talk radio show for one of our finals, we enjoyed it so much, we decided to keep it going. Actually, it’s one of the perks of being a graduate at CSB and it’s encouraged for potential employers to check us out and maybe hire us for a radio station outside of the school.
My job, besides being a personality, is board operator and social network contact. I share some of those duties with Carolyn, but for the most part, I’m making sure we have a presence the internets. I admit I haven’t been doing a lot of tweeting with our official Twitter @TheLostDial, but I’m hoping to change that now that we are getting a bigger following.
One of the jobs I’m most proud of is setting our show up as a podcast. Even as I type this, I’m waiting to hear if iTunes will accept our humble podcast in their immense stable. But in the meantime, you can download us over at PodBean (and coincidentally, subscribe until iTunes includes us in their store).
So please, take a listen to the show! Like us! Be a fan! Send us feedback! (We’ll give you a shout out too!)
