I remember being asked that a lot when I was growing up. When you’re a teen you really get those questions. So what did I want to be when I grew up, a couple of things I considered just were not meant to be, mainly because you had to study Math!
I thought about being a weatherman, really weather fascinates me and I really looked into in.
Other possible career choices included, the military but I didn’t like people telling me what to do and I still don’t, but I respect those who serve our country.
I looked into the medical field, not as a Doctor but as a repertory or physical therapist.
But all that went away when I had my 1st experience with radio. I was a Sr. in high school and the Memphis School system had a station at a nearby school and I went and was hooked.
I grew up always listening to the radio. George Klein and Rick Dee’s of Disco Duck fame were 2 of my favorites. I even met Dee’s pre duck days when I answered telephones at the station he worked for in Memphis. Rick and his boss a man named Bill Murray (NOPE NOT HIM) came in to say hi to those answering phones and offered us an album of our choice. Murray was shocked when I chose Frankie Valli the album that had “My eyes adored you “ had just been released,and I had been to a 4 seasons concert the year before.
I have worked at several radio station over the years but I have been here 23 years. I will be here until they pull the microphone from “MY COLD DEAD HANDS” if you love what you do and they pay you for it why not?
Here are a couple of bad jokes I found, about what you wanted to do. Hope they make you laugh
- I wanted to be a food taster, but I bit off more than I could chew.
• I wanted to be a baker, but I couldn’t raise the dough.
• I wanted to be a pilot, but it never took off.
• I wanted to be a librarian, but I shelved the idea.
• I wanted to be a butcher, but I backed into a meat grinder and got a little behind in my work.
• I wanted to be a dentist, but I was always down in the mouth.
