This week, I'm scoring a radio hat trick, appearing on the three different Milwaukee shows. In addition to my normal Friday segments on WKLH and 540 ESPN, I'm standing in for Adler on the Kramp and Adler show on FM 102.1.
Adler is wisely taking the week off after getting married on Saturday (which was an awful lot of fun), so I'm tasked with the responsibility of being hilarious and witty starting at 5:30 a.m. It was an offer I couldn't refuse.
In other words, if you're already sick of hearing me on the airwaves and reading my stuff on OnMilwaukee.com, you'll want to throw your radio/computer out the window by the end of the week.
See, I'm no radio professional, but I've been doing the Dave and Carole Show and the D-List long enough now that it feels a little somewhat natural. I've never done an entire show before, though, so Tuesday and Wednesday will be nothing if not unexpected. Please wish me luck.
Both Kramp and Adler have prepped me for the show, to a certain extent, and I know both of these guys fairly well, so chemistry shouldn't be a problem. They have, however, offered me the opportunity to come up with some of my own material.
So that's what I'm asking you, readers of OnMilwaukee.com. What would you like me to talk about on the radio this week?
I'd love to hear your ideas, via Talkback, e-mail or Twitter.
I'll do my best to represent this week. If you're in front of a radio Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday, please tune in to one or all of these shows and let me know how I did.
