  • wrfr

Should you take the time to sit before a mike for one hour every week and carry on a thoughtful one-sided conversation with a good friend, yours would be a welcome, appreciated voice. Do remember—your friend is in a car, in bed, working in a shop, or enjoying a meal. This is an intimate one-on-one conversation between you and your one close friend who is listening.  You don’t have to be a humorist to host a radio show. In fact, you’d be able to retire much earlier as an exorcist, a healer, or an expert on out-of-body experiences. If you’ve been picked up by a spaceship or slept with Tom Cruise, you can skip radio and go directly to Oprah or Montel.

Meat & Potatoes

Meat & Potatoes

Sonja Sleeper will be your host.  This show is about the basics: what, who, where, and even the occasional why.  But what does that mean? Topics to be discussed can be anything. How about some tips on modern etiquette?  Ecology? When to clear your yard in the spring for optimum overwintering creature survival? How about the mysteries of property appraisal?

This is educational with a bit of humor, so we can all have a better understanding of the world around us via the little things. I came up with this idea because for me the day to day practicalities just weren’t there. We need to know more about the world around us without headlines and sound bites or a sales pitch.  I will not pretend to be an expert or have a degree in the topic but I do promise to have done my homework.   The format is not fully developed now, it will be a work in progress, there will be some music mixed in, a random thoughts section and a central topic to start.
