Whoa, oh, oh, oh, on the radio. Sorry, I can’t get Donna Summer’s lyrics out of my head!
Good morning all…
I wanted to let you know that I will be on the radio tonight.
I almost didn’t mention it because I’m a bit rusty on the public speaking front. Okay, a lot rusty. But I reconsidered because I have a vested interest in the segment’s subject matter. I have been asked to discuss breast cancer, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, pinkwashing, and events like “no bra days” on “The Afternoon Fix” radio show with Chuck Pullen on 1230AM WJOB in Chicago.
Just in case you are interested in tuning in, you can listen live on the station’s web site:
at 6 p.m. Eastern
(As a head’s up, their stream is .pls format (Shoutcast). You can listen with iTunes. Or use Windows Media Player, but you will need to install this plugin ahead of time. Or you can use WinAmp.)
A representative from Breast Cancer Action will follow me to discuss the “Think Before You Pink” Campaign.
I think it will be worth a listen…
If I don’t screw it up, that is! But you’ve all given me the confidence to continue to stand up for what I / we believe in, so I’ll give it my best shot [she says with a nervous laugh]!
p.s. I know the photo of W running from the cardboard lion has nothing to do with being on the radio, but I thought you’d appreciate a laugh. We saw the lion and couldn’t resist!
