On Waking Up At 4:15 AM

OK, let's get one thing very clear - I am NOT a morning person. It can take me hours to become something approaching civil when the alarm goes off. So what exactly was I thinking when I agreed to do the morning show at WDHA when management at the radio station approached me with the offer last May?

My wife is what you might call "terminally perky." She can have a pounding migraine and come bouncing into the house with a big smile on her face, laughing with the kids. She's better known as the "anti-Jim" among people who know the two of us well.

So anyway, it's up at that ridiculous hour and off to two different, full-time jobs before getting home somewhere between 8 and 9 o'clock at night. Hey, it's a tough job, but someone has to do it, right?

Is This Thing On?

Blog? Me? Well now that's kind of bizarre. I mean I have a website and message board just for the radio show. I even have a MySpace page (much to the shock of my 17-year old). So what's up with this?

Call it my inquisitive nature; call it my "no one will see this anyway so why not" phase. Call it just another excuse to waste time on the Internet.
