The radio dream

I keep having this dream that upsets me, and I'm not sure what to make of it. I actually had it last week, but had to write about Vegas first because it's more interesting.

The setting can vary a bit, but the basic formula is this: I'm going back on the air at a radio station. I used to do this for a living, and I was pretty good at it. Generally speaking the trouble then comes in one of two forms. The first is that I can't get through a talk-over without messing shit up. I can't get out what I'm supposed to say, what the radio station is, what the phone number is, etc. The second problem is I can't find what I'm supposed to fire off next. CD's and carts are missing, and I end up with dead air.

I don't know what any of that means, but it does remind me of the fact that I'd love to do radio again. Shit, I'd do it for free even. I haven't been behind a microphone now since February 1996.
