10 Weird Things Spotted by a Kid during Radio Station Tours

I’ve been spending a lot of time reflecting on my radio station tours as I prepare for my 100th tour report this week. During that process, I asked my daughter if she could list off for me some of the interesting and/or weird things that she’s seen when accompanying me on radio station tours. She’s been to maybe ten radio stations in her ten years of life and it’s interesting to see what she tends to notice. With that, here’s Miss B’s list of things spotted at radio stations. Number ten is a pretty epic moment from her toddler years that she only remembers through photos:

    What’s weird about a couch? Was it a haunted couch or something like that?

      You’re right. Couches aren’t inherently weird, although she has seen some that are funky. A haunted couch would be amazing.
