We here at 92.3 BOB fm occasionally are people who multitask. Often we have to do several different things and sometimes that can mean you produce an ad or go on a remote or do a special project.


And, well, sometimes you don't really know what you're doing. Sometimes I'll record an ad and have no idea what any of the products they're selling do or what they're for. I mean, yeah, I'm a modern woman in her late thirties, but I still have no idea what a backhoe does or what you use it for. I'm not even sure I spelt it correctly. But, when you're reading the ad, you have to sound like you know what you're talking about! So.... okay, you have to, you know, "act" a little from time to time.

Sometimes people will ask you about something you read on the air, and they DO expect you to know, though. So that gets a little strange if you can't remember what you said (after all, you do talk about a lot of things and read a lot of ads) and you didn't know what it was all about in the first place. Sadly from time to time you just have to fake it. I wonder sometimes if that means it's a lie. I mean, someone knows what the heck I'm talking about, and they get it, right? I mean, I don't know an archery bow from a.........large stick but the person who wants a bow knows what that model means.

And then there's interactions sometimes with people that call you at the station. It's not too often that people call and tell you you're doing a good job or that they liked what you said or did. But when people get angry, when people hate something? You hear about it. Immediately. In direct detail. Some people just don't like what you do, or your style of content, and they're very honest with you about it. I guess sometimes honesty is a double edged sword.

What do you think? Are you always honest with people in your workplace? What about your personal life? Do you sometimes tell "white lies" to save someone's feelings?

Honestly yours,
