Did I miss my calling as an ultra-hip modern rock DJ?
Yes, I did.
Now my favourite local radio station, The Zone at 91.3 has offered me a chance to fulfill my dream, and be discovered by all those famous voice talent agents that roam the airwaves to find the next superstar of radio.
I’ll be doing My Turn on June 4th at 7pm. Please tune in, cheer me on, and tell all your friends (especially those talent search buddies of yours … you know who I mean).
They’ll see! I’ll show them that I truly have a face for radio!
Anyway, part of my job is to pick 15 songs to play. Given such a simple task, I have done what comes naturally – I have picked 32 songs.
So, let’s see if we can do a bit of crowd-sourcing here. Help me out by adding a comment with the songs I should definitely cut from my list. If you want to complicate my life even more, please suggest songs to add to my list, too.
