OTB Radio Debuts Tonight at 7

OTB Radio I’ve been invited to host a weekly one hour radio program for BlogTalkRadio. The show, which I have cleverly dubbed OTB Radio, will debut tonight at 7 Eastern.

My guest will be Ed Morrissey of Captain’s Quarters, who is also the political director at BlogTalkRadio and the host of a weekdaily show of his own. We’ll be discussing recent hot button news issues and, if anyone’s listening, taking calls at (646) 716-7030.

If you’re unable to listen live, the show will be archived and available for download or streaming from the site.

UPDATE: The first show’s in the can and archived here. The audio quality on my end isn’t great but it’s audible. The conversation is interesting enough, although I hope my show hosting skills improve over time. I’ll try to refrain from saying “sort of” as much in future episodes.

    Take this from somebody who used to make his living behind a microphone:

    it’s a different world, one to open that mike. Some of the smartest people I know sound like absolute idiots once they get behind the microphone. On the other hand some of the dumbest people I know sound like they’re in their natural environment behind the Mike. (Which is why I always laugh when I see some folks making a big deal of of GWB’s on-mike flubs…)

    You don’t have much to worry about in that area. Besides which, it your content that comes through.

    Thanks, Bithead. It’ll take a while to get my groove, I think. I’ve done a bit of radio from the other side of the mike but hosting (sans producer, no less) is different. Plus, I’m much more comfortable when I can see my audience or at least the guest/host.
