Okay, wait, wait, wait. You started in the radio business when you were six years old? How did how did that opportunity come about?
Josh Berger 01:47
Yeah, my aunt was a casting director for radio. And I think she was a little lazy, because she just hired all of her grandkids, or all of her nieces and nephews to do it. But I really loved it.
