The radio show is not my only job. I also do video and social media work for companies who want me to help tell their stories. This Tuesday was one of those days. A large company asked us to film their recycling plant in Hilton and Midmar.
So off on a plane, I flew to Pietermaritzburg Airport. It has 2 doors, an in and an out. It is not a big airport. The plane has to make a U-turn at the end of the runway to make its way back to the place it parks. Then a man pushed a staircase under the door of the plane, at an angle to make it more fun to disembark, then you walk through a room to the parking. No mess – no fuss.
I drove to Hilton and checked into my Airbnb.
I wake up for the Fairland Radio Breakfast show at 5:30 am. The room had no desk or table on which to work, so I put my laptop on my lap, the sound desk on the bedside table, the microphone on my tummy and I presented a radio show.
Modern technology is amazing that I am able to present a worldwide radio show from my bed, under the duvet with a hot cup of coffee next to me. Any station manager around the world would be a nervous wreck now thinking of a cup of coffee open next to the sound desk, but I like to live dangerously.
Is it a good idea to do a radio show from your bed? YES!
Did I do it well? Well, that’s up to you. Did you enjoy the show? I hope so.
I would post a picture of me doing my thing in the bed but I was wearing only pyjama bottoms and I am brave but I am not stupid. So no topless Jon pictures. For now!
