I'm Gonna Be On The Radio!!! I Am! I Am!

Regina, Saskatchewan
June 15, 2009 12:16pm CST
I'm so excited I can barely contain myself and just had to share it with you all! I just got off the phone with a reporter from the CBC Regina Morning Edition Radio Show. Seems she was sent the article in the Tribune-Democrat about my relationship with our own dear you know who, whom we recently lost. So tomorrow morning, my VOICE, is going to be on the radio, broadcast all over the world (!) in an on air telephone interview about how friendships grow, blossom and change our lives, all from one serendipidous connection online. Kinda like 'good news for a change' about the internet. LOL The interview will also promote the chipin site for the college fund and hopefully more people will be touched and will check it out (read contribute) if my words are eloquent enough. So go out and beg, borrow or steal a Sirrius Radio folks and tune to CBC Canada at 7:24am Central time to hear my golden tones! Do you listen to the radio talk shows much? If not.....START TOMORROW! LOL

Woohoo, Sparx!! Congrats and wish I could catch wind of it myself. Not that I'll be awake that early in the morning, but still....... I'm so dog tired right now, but I'm not up that early on a good day. Well, I was while on vacay, but not while I'm home. Go figure. I hope it helps her kids out loads. And, maybe it'll put a kick in your career plans as well. Who knows???

No worries jerz, you can sleep in! LOL Check reinydawn's response right above yours here and copy the link I gave her and the instructions. You can listen to it any time on your computer tomorrow. And, hey, no career plans in the works for me thanks! LOL My career days are over. I just want to share Missy's story and get the chipin site link out there as much as I can. Hugs.

Typical kijerky M.O., attack and say HORRIBLE things and then play the phucking victim. Kijerky you are like a broken record, and it's pretty boring to see you do this AGAIN. GO find something else to do, you lying evil twit.

Kijiky..what are you doing on jerzgirl's post? Yes, YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY GOD for your wrongdoings! Of that I am certain. Too bad it will take that long for you to figure out all the wrongs you have committed against other innocent humans.

You gonna pay my bail when I go to jail for stealing a Sirrius radio??? Bet they take it away from me when they put me in jail so I still don't get to hear that velvet voice!!!
• Regina, Saskatchewan

Nope. I don't pay bail. I figure if you do the crime, you do the time! You can always log into CBC.ca and find the link to the recorded version of the story and listen to it on your computer.

I'm sorry about your hearing loss jayrene. So many people have that problem. I'm deaf myself in my right ear......... Hopefully though if AnnieOakley1 here (see her response on this thread) keeps searching she'll find a link where you can go and if you can't listen to the interview, you'll probably be able to read it. Good luck.

This is wonderful sparks. I'm so glad for both reasons, the chipin for the children and to promote the website. It is nice that someone picked up on this and is willing and able to help out. Air time cost a lot and you are getting it for free. I have not listened to talk radio lately, just once and it was the swap shop thing where people call in if they have something to sell or trade. I don't know anyone with a sirius radio . I wish that I did so I could listen in. Make sure to have the link in front of you so they get it right, lol. Although it is an easy one to remember, but being excited you might forget something. lol Good luck dear lady.

HUH? Did someone mention my name? I don't think they have posted it yet. It seems the last podcast they posted was June 12, so it looks like they are a few days behind.

As Alice said, the link is in #6 above. I'm used to public speaking so I'm not nervous about people hearing my voice. What I'm worried about it my voice getting all emotional if I get teary talking about Bella. I'll be up all night psyching myself up for it though, so hopefully I'll be ok!
