I was in line at the grocery store yesterday and doing what annoys the daylights out of Mike – I was yakking on the phone.  After I hung up, a lady behind me tapped me on the shoulder and said she recognized my laugh, but not my voice because I wasn’t talking right.  I asked her what she meant, and she said, “You know, like you do on the radio”.

I laughed and said we don’t always talk like that.  Which got me to thinking about other things KISS FM dj’s don’t do when we’re not on the air.

  1.  We don’t use our ‘radio voice’ – Mike really has a very high, squeeky voice, kinda like David Beckham on helium.  He reserves his golden voice for the show.
  2.  We don’t have the sunny dispositions you hear on the air – Patty Campos is actually a very angry elf.  She likes to prank call other radio stations and request songs they don’t play.
  3.  We don’t come to work all grunged out.  I mean, we know no one can see us, but, c’mon, we’re professionals, and we dress accordingly.
  4.  We don’t really spend a lot of time researching the material we use on the show.  We just Google a lot.
  5. And finally, we never pull the, “I’m Monika from KISS FM”, card.  We let our friends do it!
