Back to Life, Back to Reality

Almost 12 weeks after I last left the airwaves, I’m set to return today!

I can only compare it to the first day of school. I’m feeling excitment and anticipation mixed with bits of dread and nervousness. Sticking my yap in front of a microphone is something I’ve done for more than a quarter century so this break was really just a blip. Still, you get into a groove with your job and I definitely need to get my groove back.

My liver doctor was very clear that I should come back to work part-time for at least the first week. However, there is no such thing as part-time when you host a radio show. My staunchest supporter at 1039 fm (and the one who had to pick up my slack when I was off!) Leigh Robert has suggested that I voice-track (pre-record) my last hour to give me a bit of a break. I’ll do that this week, anyway. I’m feeling good and strong. And I feel it won’t be long before I’m back in fine fighting form. I’m ready coach – put me in!

  1. Hi Lisa, I’m so happy that you’re feeling better. I was worried about you ’cause you sounded so weak (if you can ‘sound’ through the internet). Good luck returning to work but don’t overdo it.


  2. Noooope, I’m pretty sure that 98 is perfect 😉 Congrats on what I’m sure was a great (but grueling) return to reality today – or whatever the hell radio is – I’ve no doubt London sounded better today for it. xox E xox

  3. Great news! All the best. I am sure you will be great and have your groove back in no time.
