One of the perks in radio is meeting people from various lifestyles and entertainment to help promote their wares.
In this case, I overheard a conversation from the rival breakfast show that they were interviewing one of my favourite movie directors Kevin Smith (aka Silent Bob). My eyes lit up and I started giving the talent ideas and questions to ask. I was then told that I was ‘geeking out’ so I stopped and agreed, and walked back to my production studio to continue my work.
About 10 minutes later, their assistant barged my door open and told me to walk with him. Next thing you know, I’m lead into the on-air studio for a pre-recorded interview with Smith on the phone. I had joined in mid-way through the chat.
This – is the awkward and geeking out result.
