LIVING IT UP!
Live shows are fun. You say something and it’s on air. A song plays; you react to it as soon as it ends. That comes from your heart.
Recorded shows give you time to prepare. You can speak passionately for about 10 or 15 minutes. You can record quickly.
Live radio is spontaneous. You have pointers — some cracks, some lines you want to say.
This is one profession that provides a lot of scope for quick growth. All you need is talent and perseverance.
