Yay, toast and golden balls

I did my first KRCC shift with the new weekend schedule earlier today. My Saturday shift has the same shows as before, with some of the new/moved shows airing during the next announcer's shift. My Sunday shift starts the same way with Weekend Edition, then Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me, A Prairie Home Companion, the Thomas Jefferson Hour and the TED Radio Hour. I play Weekend Edition live off the satellite, while the other shows are now fully automated on the station's ENCO computer system. Most of the air breaks are now filled with prerecorded announcements, meaning I don't talk on-air as much. (That could be good or bad, depending on the listener.) The weekend semi-automation more closely resembles my Part 15 home "station" which I run Tuesday through Friday using both podcasts and live shows. I had to insert a few underwriting spots that were on the printed log but not on the computer playlist. Also, the automation system forgot to switch to the top-of-the-hour news feed one time. Other than that, and the engineer scaring the shit out of me when I first arrived, my shift went well.

One of the shows I aired today mentioned a cheese called Gjetost, which the hosts pronounced as "Yay, toast!" Another show mentioned a game show on ITV called "Golden Balls."

The station's membership drive starts in 2-1/2 weeks. I'm hoping the reduction in music shows doesn't severely affect the amount the station raises this time.
