National ‘Look-a-Like Day’ Friday, April 20 Who Do You Look Like? [POLL]
Has anybody ever told you you look a famous celebrity, movie star, country singer, politician the list could go on and on. Well, I'm here to tell you my celebrity look-a-like is right here in the building, meaning I don't think we look-a-like but listeners out on the street get us confused all the time.I'm talking about Wes from Power 95.9, yea that's right my brother from a different mother. That's how we introduce one another when we're out on location. I do believe Wes gets called Mario more than I get called Wes, but it happens. For example, I was working behind my desk the other day and a client walked past my door, peered in and said Hey Wes. I just said Howdy! Another incident was when Wes and I were at Sparks in the Parks working the stage area, a guy comes up looks straight into our faces and then looks at Wes and calls him Mario.
It's been a running joke around here that we are going to get some T-shirts made up when were out in public that say "I'm Not Mario" and "I'm Not Wes." I joke with Wes and tell him the next time someone calls me Wes, I'm going to be rude just to make them think it was Wes.
But really we do have a bunch of fun with it, saying if we need to cover for an event we just change station shirts and wear each others name tag. Here's the way I look at it, better to be called Wes than MARIA. I hate that!!! By the way forgot to tell you I'm the better looking one.
Do you look like someone famous? Send a photo of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know who you favor. I'll do a follow-up post on a later date.
