17 Year Old DJ Avitable

During all four years of college, I was a DJ on the local college radio show. I recorded almost every show I did on cassette tape and lugged the huge boxes of cassette tapes from Virginia to Saint Louis to Los Angeles to Orlando, where they were placed in a closet to gather dust. Recently, however, I purchased a cassette-to-mp3 adapter and have started to digitize my brilliant deejay career.

Oh man I was horrible! And it’s so embarrassing to hear that I thought I’d just share a few of the mp3s with you. Here’s your small humiliating taste of Avitable as a freshman college student:

    I am shocked and appalled that you were hired for inappropriate language. It’s so unlike you.

    Was this a paying job or was it a volunteer position?

    My brother was a heavy metal DJ on the radio Arkansas (I know…hard to believe…heavy metal in Arkansas?) for a few years. He played me a few of his demos and if he hadn’t told me it was his voice, I never would have guessed.

    But your voice now is the same as then.

    I don’t think it was that bad.

    The second to last show was hilarious! I’d totally have hung out with you. 🙂
    But I have to say, your voice is damn near identical to an ex boyfriend of mine. It’s really kinda creepy! In a good way. Really. We’re still friends!

    I was a DJ all through high school. The end of the top 40 disco days. 30 years later I still have people quoting the crap I used to do back at me. When I started I was in news. My first story was ended in a bad tongue twister regarding replacing parking meter heads. The next story was about a local party that was described with a word I did not know and could only guess how to pronounce… BYOB.

    I got a call from the owner every day telling me I was doing a fantastic job only there it is Dah-Moyne and please stop talking about the United States Marine corpse. The word is pronounced CORE.

    I wonder how in the hell people remember things like that 30 years later.

    By far, the 3rd sound bite was the best. The only way it could have been better, is if you’d have added a “… So you can all suck my fat, leg-length, animated cock”, and immediately followed it with lords of acid.

    I had a 1984 Olds Cutlass Supreme. Naturally, as they all were, mine was stolen. Twice.

    The thing I lost that I care about the most was a tape I’d made of one of my better on-air nights at a station I used to work at.

    (I miss my ball glove and bat as well. But those were easily replaced.)

    Amanda, we were eclectic.

    Poppy, I am very proud of my dorkiness.

    DB, I knew most people would be mortified!

    Carolina, last year. Wanna see?

    BB, that doesn’t surprise me. Amanda seems like she’d fit right in with those catty bitches! 😛

    Mattie, it was volunteer, and my voice is much higher then than it is now.

    Honeybell, I love Lords of Acid – such a great band!

    Elisa, I’m 31. But I have the music tastes of a 12-year old girl.

    Ed, I was still becoming a man, apparently.

    Lisa, you’re too nice!

    Faiqa, fucker.

    Metalmom, it’s from Natural Born Killers.

    Sybil, friends with benefits?

    LMSS, I do love some Greek salad.

    EE 3699, me too!

    Janelle, yup. I’m sending him some of these mp3s soon.

    Cris, I think I’d remember that too. Heh.

    Robin, did you ever listen?

    Muskrat, it’s my favorite theme of all time.

    HG, girls did love my sexy radio voice back then.

    Kapgar, I haven’t had a chance to listen yet.

    Hello, I’m nostalgic like that. Oh, and I don’t pay attention to stats, so that doesn’t matter.

    Zom, hahaha – that’s how I got fired!

    Beth, only if by “woo” you mean drove by, waved my penis at them and said, “Woooo!”

    DrZibbs, I can imagine.

    Delmer, that would have made me sad, too.

    Sheila, dammit, it only takes like two minutes to download!

    Alright. I did it. It took some extra effort with downloading some plug in thingamajig BUT I finally got to hear the clips. They were very educational by the way. For one, I learned that I pronounce your name very wrong. whoops.

    Lords of Acid? Nice. The theme song suits you – it’s a song I’d never heard by them.
