This weekend – as with every Sunday at 1 pm – I’ll be on The Buddha Lounge, a radio show I’ve really come to love, which airs every Sunday at 1 pm on CFRB 1010 AM.
For about five minutes, I talk about where to eat, shop and play in Toronto in between fascinating guests — authors, musicians, artists. Why haven’t I mentioned it before now?
There’s a very good reason. The show is taped, so when the amazing host, Natasha, asked me to be a part of it, I thought it would be a breeze.
I thought I’d get retakes. You know, I cough, they stop the tape. I flub, they stop the tape. I get hiccups, they stop the tape.
Um…they didn’t stop the tape. At all. Even when I garbled my words on the first show so incredibly embarrassingly that it sounded like I had bubbles in my mouth. I guess I can be thankful I didn’t get the hiccups at the same time.
So technically, even though it’s taped, it’s still sort of live.
Anyway, I’m now a few weeks into it and I feel confident enough that I don’t sound like the biggest loser ever, so now I’m telling you about it.
If you have a favourite new find in the city, let me know and I’ll mention it in an upcoming show!
