Amelia's clever notes

Sleepy company

It was recently my last day working at WWIB until December. I can’t believe how fast this summer is going! July is coming to a quick close all too soon. I bet it will go even faster as I will be on a family vacation to South Carolina the last week in July and into August. It’s going to be quite 1013533_555593534498758_2001581656_nthe adventure, especially with my little brother and sister along for a very lengthy car ride.

I think I’m going to miss my family a lot, as well as my home…Wisconsin in general. It will be strange coming back to chilly weather after having an extended summer. Fall is also my favorite season and my birthday is in October, so I’ll miss the time when the leaves change colors.

Getting back to my first statement, Craig came along with me to the station on my last day working before my trip. I always love when he comes because it means I have company. The station¬† is normally pretty quiet on Sundays. I was hoping Craig would come along with me some time this summer, and it worked out perfectly that he came with me on my last day. He went to a movie the night before, a scary movie at that, so I’m not surprised that he was a little tired. When he comes with me, he usually is at least a little tired. However, he’s never fallen asleep before.¬† Read the rest of this entry »

Third time’s a charm

As some of you listeners may know, I’ve been training with Mark to substitute in for him during his morning shifts for a few days.¬† Mark is so talented; he makes his work look easy. The challenge seemed daunting, but even at just a size 7 shoe, I felt I might be able to somewhat fill his shoes. Finally, the day arrived for me to be on my own. I got into the station at around 4:30 am, and got started on getting sound bites for the news right away. All of that went well, and I thought I was over the toughest part…till I got into the FM studio. Read the rest of this entry »
