15 (ok, really, only 5) minutes of fame

Have you always wanted to be a radio talk show host? Are you at least 18 years old? Are you good at presenting your opinions? Has anyone ever told you that you have a great voice? Well, here's your chance! 97.1 Free FM in Los Angeles is holding a contest called "America's Next Great Talk Stud" (though presumably, it's open to women also, not just men). They give you a demo topic, and you do a 5-minute "show" on the topic and then submit it. If they like it, they'll play it on the air and put it on the web where people can vote for it. At the end of the year, the person with the highest-rate show will get two hours on the air. I'm presuming that the demo topic changes periodically - not sure if you can submit more than one show.

Here's the link for more information.

OK, I know, I'm a dork, but reading the official contest rules made me laugh.

Well, people are always telling me what a great voice I have (and I really hate my dumb job*). So I might give it a shot--but I have nothing to say on the current topic, so I think I will wait to see what else comes up.
