Over the years, I have gotten some interesting shout-outs on various Pittsburgh radio stations.
Several years ago, I talked to a disc jockey who worked at Mix 96.1, which is now 96.1 KISS-FM. I told the disc jockey that I was Joseph … and I also told him that I was from South Fayette. I did this at Monroeville Mall, by the way. I didn’t hear him give me the shout-out, though, but he probably did give me one back then.
Then, in December of 2009, I got a shout-out from former WISH 99.7 disc jockey Dan Dunlap. He said hello to “Joseph from South Fayette” while I was at The Mall at Robinson one afternoon. Basically, he was giving me a shout-out at that time.
Then, in January of 2011, I got a more formal shout-out from WQED-FM announcer Ted Sohier. He did it while the station was celebrating its 38th birthday. I actually praised him on his work on Twitter … and he thanked me for it on the air. He said that the tweet was from “Joseph Pratt of South Fayette.”
Hopefully, I’ll get a shout-out from another disc jockey sometime soon.
