Have you ever called in to a radio program and spoken to someone on the air? What program was it and what did you talk about? Or if it was a music station, what song did you request?
The most recent one I did was a couple of months ago. I called the Dana and Parks program. Every Friday at 5:00, they have a segment called Festivus Friday, during which people call in and voice (or "air") their grievances.
My grievance was against every single driver along a certain stretch of road near where my parents live and it's only one lane each way. I don't know what about that road compels people to drive at least five miles under the speed limit, but it does and THEY DO! Argh!
Anyway, that was the most recent time I called in. One of my friends texted me after hearing it and said "that was very specific".
Have you ever called a radio program?

Lots of times, ever since I got a phone in my bedroom when I was 10. My brother and I used to call to request songs and such, but that was like 15 years ago. Now song requests are done online or through text (at least at most stations here in Toronto). But I have called into contests, and have been pretty lucky. I recently won front row tickets to Adele in October, in Toronto!!! I've also won money, gift cards, and other prizes through contests - like where you have to answer 10 questions in a minute or recognize 1 second snippets of a song, etc.
I would totally call in to "Festivus Friday", hahaha! That is awesome. I like airing my grievances. I would even go for something like what Peter Griffin did with "You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?"

I have never called in a radio show but I host one every other month with a good friend of mine. We mostly talk about current events, domestic politics, sometimes a bit of culture... things like that.1
