I'm on the radio

I'm on the radio from 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm (PST) Saturday night to talk about my book, America's Half-Blood Prince: Barack Obama's 'Story of Race and Inheritance.'

You can listen live here.

My published articles are archived at iSteve.com -- Steve Sailer

For those who will miss the broadcast, and will wonder what Steve sounds like: he sounds smart (duh), nerdy, but masculine. Subtract wimpiness from your idea of what a nerd should sound like, and you're half way there.

Stick to writing...

I'm imagining Howard Stern.

Steve, video killed the radio star. If you want to become an Internet phenomenon, like Pastor Manning, you need your own YouTube channel.

I heard it.

If I was new to it I would have listened but you basically repeated stuff you've already written. First impression is therefore you go into too much detail for radio.

This makes it hard work for you to get across everything you need to support your argument and puts you on the defensive without a shot being fired. You need to have more fun on radio.

On radio they say less is more. So perhaps assume listener has greater than average knowledge of your subject, not less. The interviewer will probe for clarifications.

Compress data, retain image.

If you go to the site the show is audio archived. Steve appears halfway through hour 2.

If you're looking to do more radio (even net only) you need to work on the voice.

Your breath support sounds like it's all from the back of the mouth or throat and there are some breathing issues too.

I used to do the former and the latter is still a problem of mine (though I have no radio ambitions). Some respitory ailments as a child mean that while it's not that apparent in daily conversation if you record me on professional equipment it sounds like an obscene phone call. Either that or sit still during the next interview

It was funny when the guy asked, "what kind of dog is that?", and you said, "a big one, and it's chasing me". So I guess you were walking around outside while doing this interview?

Obama's autobiography is "one of the most purchased and least finished books of recent years". A very good line. I must confess that I bought the book and barely cracked it.
