Tommy Kramer Tip #135 – Chinese Handcuffs


No doubt you’ve seen “Chinese handcuffs”, that little woven tube that TRAPS your fingers inside it.  And the more you struggle, the tighter it gets.  You have to relax to get free.

The same thing goes for what you do on the air.  Don’t overthink what you’re doing, and don’t try too hard.  Make it simple, and easy to consume.  If you try to do too much, or it gets too complicated, I’ll just turn the radio off and go get a burger.

Surely you’re better than a burger!  (Actually, most air talents are more like “ham” sandwiches.)
