The Morning Show, Wake and Bake, has it’s own division of the volunter army. Unlike every other show, it’s tightly structured – a sacrifice made to ensure it’s at least one accessible entry point to the station. 6 to 9 am is when the world is waking, and people appreciate consistency to start their day out to.
The music is as eclectic in genre as the rest of the station, tho it leans more Pop and less throat singing or bagpipes. Not no throat singing or bagpipes, just less.
Clay Pigeon, the host, is a genius at a soundboard. The sound effect drops are frequent and perfectly timed. He’s also got an undeniable charisma, which shines through in interviews and games with listeners (glisteners as Clay refers to em’), and daily skits he writes and performs.

Given the show has such a tight production to it, yet more volunteers are called to help keep the machine oiled. Writing news items, recording their own segments, and updating the online playlist. This is where I came in, each Monday morning, as an “associate producers” for the show.
