If you could undertake any job for a day outside of the radio or music business,
what would you select?
Mark Adams, KYLD & KIOI: Adjunct professor of theoretical particle physics. Or a Shepard. Or maybe Prime Minister of England? Or, no, comic book author. Yeah, let’s go with that.

Jim Clerkin, WXKS: I’ve always wanted to start an animal training show where myself and my androgynous partner (who people aren’t sure is either a sibling or lover) teach the great beasts of the wild to do every day household chores.

Albie Dee, WOCQ: Scuba Diving Instructor.

Chad Rufer, KZZO: Retiree.

John Mayer, WFLZ: I’d play catcher for the Mets and have a blast with that great pitching staff.

Tommy Chuck, WIHT: Major league baseball middle relief pitcher.

Jimmy Steele, iHeartMedia-Salsbury-Ocean City, MD: Working for a cause such as Chikdren's Miracle Network and also earning my living living as a landscape photographer.

Brian Michel, iHeartMedia/Atlanta: Jungle Cruise Skipper at Disneyland.

Mike Miller, WHKF: Bed tester. So I can sleep more.

Kobi, WNRW: Work for the Carolina Panthers in the scouting department.

Matt Johnson, KUDD: Porn star.

Chris Michaels, FM100: I would be a Detective for a day.

Brad Davidson, ThinkSay Record: I started as a sports broadcaster and worked with UMass Basketball in their Final Four years. If I went a different path, I would return to College athletics. Dream Job would be coaching a Division 1 hoops program and take a smaller school to the Final Four!

Sean “Rabbi” Tyszler, WMMR: Some kind of chef…then I will know how to cook.

Bennett, WZMP: I would love to work with animals and be a zookeeper. Wait isn’t that what radio is?
Otis, WDJX: I always wanted to be a ticket ripper at the movie theater. Have no idea why!

Toby Knapp, WIHT: A reporter for Rolling Stone or the Washington Post covering Politics and Music and its effect on pop culture.

Orlando, WLLD: I’d love to be a judge, for a day. It would be like Oprah…”you’re going to jail and YOU are going to jail. Everybody’s going to JAIL!!!!”

JB King, KLUC: Professional world traveler.

Casey Reed, WIOQ: Zoologist / animal rights activist AND professional motorcycle racer!!!

Java Joel Murphy, WAKS: I was going to say, “work at an independent record store”, but that’s the music business. Ummmm. Boy. This is a toughie. Wait – I got it. FOOD CRITIC! Yeah. That’d be a pretty sweet job.

Rich Davis, KBKS: Real Estate. Love looking at houses.

Jimmy Steal, Power 106: I would like to be a well funded VC and hear startup funding pitches.

Ryan Kramer, KHFI & KPEZ: That's easy, MLB player for the Giants. My love of the game is eclipsed only by the love for my family. I'd give anything to spend one day in a Giants uniform and get a chance to play in even just one inning with an at bat.

Sassy, WKXJ: A stripper. No I'm not kidding!

Marissa, WFLY: A songwriter.

Keith Rothschild, Island Def Jam: I would run a sports memorabilia company with Jeff Rizzo.

Roxy Myzal, Hard Drive: Landscape designer or a killer Italian restaurant.

Todd Lyons, KATS: Public Address Announcer for Seattle Mariners at SafeCo Field.

Bailey, KTCL: If I could have a job outside of radio for one day…that’s a tough one, do I go for big money and say Day Trader on the day all of their trades double and triple in value…or do I go with what I love? I guess I’d have to go with the second and say I would spend that one day as a whale, dolphin and seal trainer!
Rob Roberts, Q100: Assuming I have to maintain my current skill set (versus being able to hit a major league curve ball) I would be the ball boy who sits on the field at Yankee Stadium, catches foul balls and plays catch with the outfielders in between innings. Dream big.

Heather Deluca, WSJO: I’d want to try something in fashion. Maybe see what it’s like to be Anna Wintour for a day. Just to at least to raid the Vogue magazine samples closet!

Jeremy Rice, WBLI: PGA Golfer playing with Tiger in a big tournament.

Randi West, WMTX: Travel blogger. So I could test out resorts.

Brian Mack, WXXL: Harbor Patrol in some small town like Port Washington, NY.

Chase Murphy, KXXM: 8th inning set up pitcher for the Astros, but only after they have a 10 run lead.

Jared Banks, KUDD: I'd love to run a lighthouse. Live in it. Keep it running. Give tours. It's a bit unnecessary with modern technology, but I love the nostalgia of it. The lifestyle would be cool, even if it's a little over romanticized!

Kobe, WWHT: I would want to be the DJ for Ellen Degeneres.

Big Rob, KSME: I think I'd like to work for Disney producing their parades or specialty programming at the parks, or being a voice actor for cartoons.

Mike “OD” O’Donnell, WKRZ: A TV weatherman. I just want to stand in front of a green screen and move my hands around as clouds roll by. I actually do love the weather. I could easily make a second career out of it.

Derrick Cole, WLAN: Owning a bar on the beach! Tell me that isn’t a great gig all around.

Greg Beharrell KITS: An author, but I'm controlling so it'd be "I choose your own adventure."

Charley, WSMW: Billionaire…. Beer taster… Seriously – Forensic Anthropologist!
