I had a laugh the other day. Me and a fellow DJ (We do actually use disks) did the first breakfast show (Monday) on the first week of the RSL. Didnt go very well as the station didnt want it to be wacky and fun, which is why we wernt on tuesday.
The Antic number one:
The “fellow DJ” (Whos show it was) stayed at my house, He came up to my room and woke me franticly because we were late. I got out of bed to find some trousers and kept picking up this curtain. I eventually found a pair and put them on, and this curtain kept getting in the way. I was looking for all my other stuff and this bloody red curtain kept getting in the way. Anyway within 5 minutes we left to the station.
at about 7:30, we made up a story on air about me coming into the studio wearing no trousers, just a curtain and asking listeners to find out if they saw my trousers, just to get a reaction.
Anyway i did say to the DJ that i would like to kill the item now as i thought it was finished, but the DJ wanted to continue, and it did, but wasnt any good.
In the local paper, a few weeks later someone sent a letter to them, making referance to “a couple of school kids” and “one of them wasnt even wearing any trousers” Are you having a laugh or something? would you belive it if you heard anyone had come in to work wearing a curtain? No, not at all. So why did this person think i did??? This is the person we aimed to catch out!!! i didnt belive it when i read it, i was in fits of laughter!!!!
they also mentioned a few things that went wrong through out the first few days and telling our high profile presenter to go back to her old station and implyed we should sound like the BBC. We arn’t the bbc, and only 2 out of the 4 people who set up the station have been involved in other RSLs, so things arnt going to go perfect. but we belive that the person who was picking on us was someone who dosent like us from another station in the area cos were a threat to them.
