Like millions of people around the world I was disappointed with the ending to Game of Thrones. Not enough to sign a petition or cancel my HBO. But enough that it’s been keeping me up at night. I’ve been running the story lines around in my head about what could have been, or should have been. It doesn’t help that I look at Twitter to see what other fans are feeling and seeing all of fan theories being shared that make a lot of sense.
So when my friend Lara Scott from K-EARTH 101 invited me to her studio to air our grievances about the final season and final episode I jumped at the chance. Not just to go talk with her about one of my favorite shows, but to see the inside of her radio station. It’s been 20 years since I worked in radio and I wanted to see how much has changed. And let me tell you, not much has!
Things are more digital now, but the basics of DJ and mic, tossing to songs, hitting your post… all of that is the same. Radio is a classic form of entertainment and it’s good to see that it’s still going strong.
While I was in the studio at Radio.com, I bumped into my friend Allie MacKay who’s on the Kevin and Bean morning show at KROQ. We used to work together at KTLA and had a brief moment of bonding when we realized we didn’t have to work there anymore. Yay! I love the people at KTLA (most of them) but it was a sweat shop. I worked my butt off, often not having time for a potty break or snack break, because the amount of news they put on the air is ridiculous. Anyway, it was great to see Allie!
But on to Game of Thrones and the wrap/recap I did with Lara. I loved sharing our fan theories and scene breakdowns because she’s as a big of a fan as I am. You have to listen to this episode and tell me if you agree with our assessment of the finale and what you would have done differently. Or if you’re over it. I’m almost there. Almost…
