So, around the 2010s, I burned a CD-R disc recording of myself doing a time check, a weather check, and a traffic update.
I snail mailed copies of that CD to all the major English radio stations in Metro Manila: Magic 89.9, Mellow 94.7, Monster RX 93.1, Wave 89.1, and what were then 99.5 RT and 103.5 Max FM.
Of course, I got no replies. (Today, after just listening to a copy of that CD I made over a decade ago, I wouldn’t have hired myself either.)
But with purposeful persistence and pure luck, I got in.
