CR Special: Paul on KNBR 680

On August 25, I was fortunate enough to guest host on KNBR 680, The Sports Leader!  It was a little nerve-racking being in such a renowned radio station, but I was able to hold my own for a little over an hour of sports talk.  I took several calls and mainly stayed on topics surrounding San Francisco Giants baseball.  Listening to it again, I can definitely tell I was nervous in the beginning.  By the second half, however, I was feeling great and didn’t want to leave!

Honestly, sitting in that studio with a mic in front of my face felt oddly familiar now that we’ve been doing Cinema Recon for a full year!  Still, it was certainly different not talking about movies or trading quips with Jake.  If you listen carefully though, you may hear a few CR references from myself and some familiar voices!

This was truly a dream come true for me, as I’ve been listening to KNBR in the bay area all my life.  I cannot begin to describe how much fun it was, and I only wish that radio was a full-time gig for me!  Ah well, time will tell…
