I had a radio show "The Audio Attic" on our local public access station for nine years, before fighting with the new program director and quitting. Most of the standard commercial radio restrictions didn't apply - we just had to show up on time, maintain "community standards," and read the occasional PSAs. It was all the fun of radio without most of the negatives of working on the commercial side. I had a real ball doing it, but probably wouldn't have lasted a week in "real" radio.
