I woke up with my eye still swollen, but I had made a commitment to appear on Swoop’s World Primetime yesterday morning, so I put on some make up, made sure my glasses covered up enough (I had sunglasses as a back up) and headed on over to Swoop and Peter’s home studio.
Why was I concerned about how I looked for a radio show? They live-streamed on video, as well! Alas, the video feed was not recorded. 🙁
My boyfriend went with me … he wanted to make sure I was safe since it was a home studio and I’d never met the hosts before. It was kind of guerrilla and cool. The studio was in the garage. They had fabric hanging behind them, along with their Swoop’s World banner. (Good branding, by the way!)
I had a great time! We talked about my journey to being an author (which included a little aside about my cookbooks), Toastmasters, being on video, online branding, my Unstoppable Foundation campaign and so much more. You can listen to the recording here.
If you’re an author, musician, or artist in Southern California, I strongly recommend you see if you can get on their show. They’re a couple of fun guys and what they’re doing is so close to professional, I’d feel funny calling them semi-pro. On top of that, they’ll promote your show, so you could pick up some new fans.
I’d never been in a studio before (unless you count hanging outside in the waiting room while my little sister went on local TV as the Easter Seals Poster Child). It was fun to see how they did their thing, computers in front of them, and the omnidirectional mic set before me (because my voice can be kind of low at times).
I had such a great time, I totally feel that was my daily celebration: Did something new, had a great (if sometimes rambling) conversation, and got promoted to a new audience in Long Beach, Calif.
