ready for life

Gary: I came from a dysfunctional family. I had a mom that was suffering from depression.

Intviewer: Did your real family prepare you for your dysfunctional radio family?
Gary: There’s no doubt in my mind. Some people say, “Your mother gave you a hard time? Isn’t that terrible?” I look at it this way: My mother got me ready for a the job of a lifetime, because I always had to think five steps ahead. The mood swings in my house were so crazy when i would come home i never knew what i was going to get on the other side of the door.
