Driving the desk

In music radio in the UK there's a group of people who believe you can't be a real presenter and connect with the programme, really feeling the music, unless you self-op. That's not a euphemism, it means you have to push all of the buttons yourself. It's called driving the desk.

Most people can learn to do it adequately in a day or so. But some should never be let loose near a fader.
