“i love working in radio; it’s so relaxed and immediate. and I’ve always liked playing records at people. i ran a mobile disco when i was a kid. then i was a dj on my university radio station and later on xfm in london. there is something very appealing about forcing people to listen to what you like, perhaps introducing them to something they haven’t heard before, hoping they’ll fall in love with it as well.”

i just read this quote on steve merchant’s lovely website.
as a college radio station dj and producer, i, too, enjoy forcing people to listen to what i like. i sense a form of kinship here.

also, more hilarious and oddly profound:

“the whole beauty of radio is that you can listen to it in the dark.”
– karl pilkington, upon viewing a radio with an attached lamp in china.
