O/T...I\'m a celebrity...sort of (locally)

Ok so maybe not a celebrity yet.. but I entered a contest with WAAF 107.3 www.waaf.com here in Boston and got picked. The contest is calle "Boch-prentice". Basically its based on the show the "Apprentice" with Donald Trump. Ernie Boch JR, who owns 16 car dealerships here in New England is our boss. He will "fire" us as the show goes on. Next Friday I'll be on the air again. We have to make a radio commercial for his dealerships. One person gets fired. It will be a segment for the next few weeks. IF you win, you get $1000 and work a day with Ernie Boch Jr as an apprentice. WAAF selected 3 contestants (and their producer Spaz) to take part in the contest. Somehow I got picked. I had to go into the studio today and talk on the air. It was pretty cool. I'll keep you posted. If you get a chance here locally, listen next Friday at 7am. I'll be back on.

Hey, good luck with that... $1000 would be fun to play with but more than that the experiencer is probably going to be great! Have fun with it. I love hearing that kind of stuff.

Hay man ,congratulations sounds like fun!!!! Good luck on NOT getting fired to soon!!
I've been on TV a couple of times on the news~~ And NO the cops weren't chasing or shooting at me [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
First time I was in the satellite TV business and had set up a system at a Country school so the kids could see a Teacher go int space.
and was interviued by the local TV news. So of course they all got to See the Challenger disaster Live!! [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Next time I was interviewed because I was hauling Fresh water out to the mid west a few years ago when the Mississippi was flooding everything. I was in my 18 wheeler leaning out the window talking, with the camera right in my face. I forgot one thing . I had been out by the Pool the day before in the Sun reading a book with my Sunglasses on , Did the interview with them off. I looked like a Raccoon with Big white circles around my eyes!!!

Then the fame when to KoKo's head. He started hanging with Ben Afleck and Matt Damon, dated Kate Hudson, and partied with P-diddy. Bought an apartment on the upper east side and a dig in the hills of Beverly.

Yup, I remember KoKo when he was just an average Joe like the rest of us. Ahhh Koko, we knew him well. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
