Over the years I’ve been at tons of radio station remotes, and on-site events. Up until this past Saturday I had avoided injury out in public. So much for good luck and keeping yourself out of “Harm’s Way”….while broadcasting at Valley Recycling’s “Earth Day” event at the Fairgrounds I was hit in the back of the head with one of these. It was thrown from a long distance and I’ve never been hit so hard. Needless to say it hurt and bled like hell. The culprit said he tried to warn me, but I never heard “fore” or anything. The nice folks at Valley Recycling came to my aid and bandaged me up. The guy apologized and I finished the broadcast and didn’t need stitches(thank goodness). I think he learned his lesson when I told him any medical expenses were his responsibility. Thing turned out okay for all concerned and I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of telling the story “on” and “off” the air.The next time I’m out in public at a station event I’ll be using one of these. I learned first hand that Radio can be a “Dangerous” job.
