Ragazzi, I chatted yesterday with Emanuele of Tele Radio Stereo 92.7 and he's asked me to stop in next week... he said I should come by on Monday towards the end of the show to see how things work, then if I don't get too embarrassed or nervous to be in front of the ol' "microfono" (doubtful, since I was one of those kids that went to detention for "talking too much"), I get to go on air with him as a sort of voice for Americans in Rome for one day. Tuesday, to be exact. Quite the responsibility as I definitely shy away from speaking for anyone besides myself...everyone has different experiences here and we'll have to make that very clear!
This morning during his show I sent him an SMS, since one of his topics was "strange jobs" (remember when Mr. Diego showed us the armpit smellers?) Anyhoo, he then sent me a special shout out, which is pretty surreal when you think about it, communicating with someone and they respond over your radio. Makes me laugh. Anyways, he asked me to call or send an SMS on how we American expats view the recent uh, shall we say, developments, in the Italian government. Other bloggers have briefly covered it here and here so I'm not going there... all's I'm gonna say folks is: "HEEEEE'S BAAAAACK!" Right. In terms of Italian politics, I rather shamefully admit that I don't really follow anything, 'cuz I just get way too confused.
Still no word on whether our new pal Emanuele will give us an interview too... we'll see.
