The part of my life that this episode will recall was a quick, but disjointed time. It seems fitting that this episode became fraught with trouble from technical problems that caused a few audio issues I’m not happy with, to heavy rain and dead cell phone batteries. While I toyed with the idea of deleting the whole shebang, I ultimately decided that life is messy and I want to be authentic. So here is episode 76, warts and all. I quit working at the radio station in Anderson, SC to become a part of what was supposed to be a traveling Broadway Revue troup. It didn’t turn out that way, but during the course of this forgettable “life lesson”, I did a short stint with Terminix pest control. Enjoy the story.
The next stop of my career took me to Charlotte, NC and Carowinds Theme Park where I was to be an entertainer (singer) in the country show. This episode will take you from auditions to the end of that time with some interesting life lessons along the way.
This first episode in a series telling stories from the begining of my working career all the way through to where I am now begins when i was sixteen and I had to get my first job to pay for the insurance on the truck my mom and step-dad got me. I was a bag boy at a Bi-Lo grocery store. I was no ordinary bag boy. I cleaned the restrooms like a boss, fell in love with a cashier, and made a name for myself as an entertainer. I didn't always get along with my bosses, but lessons in life and business aren't always easy or fun. This week's STD Review: Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza
