Why I like working in radio better than technical writing

Cost of gas to get to work: $8.00
Cost of BART round trip to avoid paying ridiculous parking fines: $4.90
Being the reason Ronn Owens had to cut off Howard Stern: Priceless.

I was filling in at Metro Networks yesterday as KGO Traffic Reporter Extraordinaire "Gail Alexander" when Ronn Owens was interviewing Michael Powell. Howard Stern called, and the two went at it, running past the time my traffic report had to go on.

Eventually Ronn had to cut Howard off because he had to go to traffic -- yes, me.

Here's a link to KGO-AM's web page. They supposedly have the audio of the show there as I type this, but I couldn't get it to work on my system, so you might not be able to on yours.

[Addendum: Ronn Owens' web site has portions of the show, albeit not the part where Ronn goes to the traffic report.]
