I’m at the console and I open up the mic. I open up my mouth and nothing comes out. The red and orange lights start blurring around and I start getting sort of dizzy. I have nothing cued up – no promo carts, no vinyl or cds. I stare at the console and the microphone, and imagine all the listeners at home and in their cars wondering “what in the hell’s wrong with her?” I feel as though they can hear me breathing; they can hear me thinking and can feel my embarrassment.
Same damn dream every time. Oh wait, it’s actually happened….
