arrogant much? You do realize you're posting on a site basically devoted North American pop culture. North American sports are a huge part of popular culture here.

Don't get mad at us because your sarcasm detector it broken. :-D

I would assume you must have met some people from your old radio gig after 5 years of working there who moved onto other stations who could help you out? You'd be amazed at how much a connection and a likable personality can trump whatever is on your resume as long as it meets the general requirements ie college degree. You're probably better off trying to lurk around linkedin for people you used to work with and see what happens.

Temping is pretty hit and miss. It's not easy to find temp jobs that offer meaningful employment, the people who could get that probably have jobs already and they basically want the exact same experience elsewhere. I know I had zero success going that route. His field is also pretty limiting in the temp world.

I have really good connections in the radio field in the Twin Cities. Some of the guys have been around for awhile. But right now all that's available is minimum wage jobs and all management is getting laid off. I emailed my #1 connection the other day just asking him if he knew of part time and he said that the industry is worse than ever and I shouldn't do anything with radio right now if I need it to be steady employment.
