Laughing and Sharing My Love For Pork with Montana
Doing talk radio, sometimes you forget that people are listening and sharing your life on the air can affect them. Here is an email I got from one listener:
Dominick, I had to contact you because you said something yesterday that affected me. I will try to keep this short. I am a retired old guy that lives out the valley a few miles from Bozeman. I have been on a diet for several months and doing good sticking by it. Then yesterday you started talking about the Pork Belly sandwich at Arby's. I had to do a few things in Bozeman in the afternoon. After I got my errands done, I lost control and drove to the Arby's on 7th.. I went through the drive thru and got one. Oh my God was that good! Then I decided that I wanted another one. No, skip that. I decided that I HAD to have another one. But it would have been embarrassing to go through the drive thru again so soon. Being a smart old guy, I remembered that we have two Arby's in Bozeman. So I drove to the Arby's on West Main and got another one at that drive thru. My diet went to hell because of you! I do enjoy your show. You make me laugh.
( please do not use my name on air!)
Now Arby's doesn't give me a penny. I pay full price for my pork belly sandwiches, but it's really cool to know I can share things with the "Dominick in the Morning" family. Yeah, I think of people who listen to my show as a friend or family member.
My show is new to Bozeman and at first I was getting some people complaining. Some demanding I be fired because only someone from Montana could do a show people from Montana will listen to. Yeah, I act like it doesn't bother me, but it does. I love Montana and chose to move here. So when I got this email talking about how I made a listener try a pork belly sandwich and that he enjoys the show and then to have him say, "You make me laugh." I smiled.
It only makes me work harder. Thanks Montana, for sticking with me.
