Hey! Did you know you can hear samples of almost everything we have?

HOW DO YOU WRITE "OH!"

QUESTION FOR DAN O’DAY:

I was reading your latest OH! newsletter, which prompts me to ask you how you manage to write such interesting stories about daily things that occur. I want to be able to do such things to make my on-air delivery more interesting.

DAN REPLIES:

(Note to our online readers: I realize this sounds like a bogus question that I am including to flatter myself, but it really did come from a PD.)

Well, thanks for the compliment. I think that all I do is:

  1. Find myself in stressful (yet common) situations
  2. Note my emotional reactions to them
  3. "Report" them by writing them down (by far the hardest part).
Also, I don't hesitate to exaggerate for dramatic or humorous effect. And I assume if I had an emotional reaction to the incident, other people will be able to relate to it.
