Once and only once. Never before, never again.

It was a first-class disaster.

This isn’t the whole show, but it’s the first phone call I got that night. . . and the last.

Click the link below and listen to the hot-boiling phone call from a disgruntled caller. It’s less than 4 minutes long. That was the call that shattered my dream of becoming a talk radio show host!

Sigh.
