How are your phone skills?

If you’re a regular KRCL listener, then you probably already know that Radiothon is right around the corner. In fact, we’re already accepting wed pledges for Prethon.

Anyway, I’m in need of a few people that would be willing to come down and answer some phones during my Radiothon show, April 12 from 6 to 9 AM. You probably have questions, so here’s a conversation that you and I might have on this subject. You're in bold:

Wait a minute! Wait just a GD minute! 6 to 9 AM? That’s early! And three hours!

You’re correct. It is early, but you wouldn’t have to be there right at 6:00—although that would be especially lovely—and you certainly don’t have to be there for all three hours. If you drive to work, perhaps you could just plan on waking up a bit early and answering phones for 30 minutes or so.

Well, what exactly would I have to do?

It’s pretty simple, really. Hopefully, people will be calling to pledge their support to the Thursday Breakfast Jam. While hugs and kisses and love are all nice, this is America, so we’re hoping listener support will come through in the form of monetary pledges. When a listener calls, you answer the phone cordially and walk him or her through a pledge form, writing all pertinent information legibly. Each phone call generally lasts somewhere between 30 seconds and two minutes.

What’s in it for me?

You selfish bastard. No, seriously, I understand. It’s asking a lot to get you out of bed. Well, you’ll get to hang out at a real life radio station, which is pretty rad in and of itself; meet some interesting people (read: weirdos); enjoy a free, unhealthy breakfast; and lastly, not feel guilty about providing no financial support to the station, although I will undoubtedly ask for your pledge, too.

It’s fun and hectic and silly. Will you help? If so, please let me know when you plan to be at the station (located at 1971 West North Temple) and for how long. Thanks so much.
