Hello, friends! So today I’m going to be the sole guest on The Practical Christian, the hour-long radio show hosted by Reverend Guy Lynch, of Unity Church of Las Vegas. The show will air live at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 Central, 7 Mountain, and 6 Pacific. (So ignore what you see on the show’s website, about it airing from 4 to 5 p.m.)
If you’ve ever had the
pleasure experience of hearing me on the radio, you know how completely awesome it is that I stick to writing.
There’s just something about radio. Talking in front of a group, I’m Le’ Bomb de’ Entertaining. I’m so comfortable speaking before an audience I practically fall asleep before they do.
This Wednesday night, for instance, I’ll be speaking to about 1,000 people (!) at a huge Thanksgiving interfaith service (um … so that’s Wednesday, November 23, 7:00 p.m., at Temple Solel, 3575 Manchester Ave., Cardiff by the Sea, CA.), and I know I’ll feel just as comfortable as if I were at home yakking to myself in the shower. I won’t be naked or wet, of course—but just knowing that many in the audience will be wishing I were will be plenty soothing for me.
But radio! I always end up sounding like a gonadal werewolf in the throes of a nervous breakdown. I think it’s the artifice of it that freaks me. Whenever I do a radio show, I basically never know what’s actually happening. It’s like I’m having a normal conversation on the phone with somebody—except that it’s really not like that at all. Instead, it’s this weird hybrid thing, where everything you’re doing is exactly like the trillions of other times you’ve done the exact same thing—chatted with someone on the phone about stuff you actually care about—only thousands of people are listening in.So then, as I’m talking, I suddenly become aware that what I think is happening isn’t, at all—and then my brain sort of goes haywire.
If you listen to the show today, and I suddenly either totally clam up, or start talking really fast in a voice like Barbie on steroids, you’ll know I’m having one of those moments where I suddenly remembered what’s actually happening.
CALL IN! That’s really the thing. I’d love that! That would totally help. I don’t know why. But I know it would.
CALL IN WITH QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS!!
Toll free: 1-866-820-5528. 6 to 7 p.m. Pacific Time.
The show, pretty soon after it airs, will be available for listening at the show’s archive page.
Love you guys. Thanks for all.
Wish Guy Lynch luck.
Now say “Guy Lynch luck” five times, real fast. I just did, and I almost swallowed my tongue.
