Another show, another scare, though this time it had nothing to do with setting up a live remote. As I began to exit my vehicle to head into the studio last Saturday, I suddenly realized that I had the set of keys that did not have my station key. Doh!
When you are less than 45 minutes from a live radio show, this is somewhat harrowing. My mind was racing through the options.
