This week, I get to fill in for Pat on the Magic 98 morning show. (If you want a little taste of what it's like, set your alarm for 4:00 and try to grope to the shower in the dark without disturbing either your spouse or your pets.) I was a wacky morning show host for a while back in the '80s, but since then I've done most of my radio-ing at somewhat later hours of the day.
I'm going to be doing a little less radio-ing after this week is over. Effective Monday August 19, Sara Freeman--who's done just about every shift there is on Magic over the years--will take over the afternoon show from me, and she'll be in your ear every weekday afternoon from 3 to 7. I'm still going to be on Magic doing weekends and fill-ins, which is a job I've had with the Madison stations of Mid-West Family Broadcasting since 2006, and on Magic since 2008. We're all seeking the elusive work/life balance, and making this move is something I really wanted to do to maintain that.
