So Mark Goodier's Radio Producer Just Called me..

Other

I'm sitting on my bed doing my hair when the phone rings. Don't recognaise the number, but hey, it could be a comp win. I answer. It's Mark Goodier's radio producer calling regarding my recent entry to their greatest christmas songs poll. I put Wham's last christmas. He says he wants me to say my name, where I am from and my greatest christmas hit is wham's last christmas and then talk for about 45 seconds about why it is. I was being recorded. what da fuk? I don't know what I said. I just winged it and talked crap. I was told I'll get a text message when it goes out and I might win a digital radio it is goes out on a certain date. I can't remember what the original prize must have been as there was a reason why I entered and it wasn't just to vote for wham. So I haven't won anything but I got a phone call. I'm going to sound like the world's biggest bimbo if they use it and my allergies are really bad today so I'm full of snot and phlegm; not exactly a nice clear radio voice. OMG. That has freaked me out for the morning.

Thank you. well, I'm not sure what the comp was about now. the phone call confused me as I wasn't entering to win a DAB radio (I have one already). I did note it said you might get a call about your choice but I enter radio comps all the time and often it states in the small print about a possible phone call to be recorded to go out on air, so I didn't think any one would call. Still this acts as a heads up to anyone who entered it from here on latest deals like I did that you might get put on the spot and get recorded talking. I do not want to hear myself talking nonsense on the radio.

I remember once getting a phone call for a radio station about a competition, panicking and hanging up on them so well done for doing it regardless of how you feel you sounded. I bet it is better than you thought.

I went with it because I thought at the end he was going to say you are the winner not you might get a DAB radio if your message is played on 16th (I think that's what he said; I was really freaking out). I'm an aspie, so having things like that sprung on me is not good and its taken me all day to try and calm down.

The best comp I ever won was an on air radio comp. 3 of us were called and had to state how many people the festival hall could hold. The other two said amazingly high numbers like 50 to 100 thousand but having been there I could visualise the hall and guessed 1200. The correct answer I think was 1600 but being closest I won the prize. But I must admit I was caught off guard too and found myself burbling when he said I had won!
