4 years ago  I somehow had a ticket for the Led Zeppelin press conference at The Museum of Modern Art in NYC. The legendary band was promoting their O2 reunion DVD release. Yes I had a ticket, but I still felt like I didn’t belong. Not only was I moments away from seeing arguably the greatest rock band of all time in the flesh, I was also the youngest radio “professional” in the room. At any moment I thought security was going to ask if I looking my mom…

After a private screening of the reunion DVD, the press were escorted to the conference room. Question after question were (of course) about a potential reunion, which was shot down BEFORE this event. Robert Plant got annoyed, which made me laugh since I too was annoyed at the repeat questions. I freely admit I was too afraid to ask a question. What would I even ask? But I didn’t care, I was just so happy to be a part of this historic event. Despite my pictures being taken with an old Blackberry phone, I was elated when Facebook reminded me of this memory today.

I am not worthy.
