Music radio is a little different but my policy was to solicit once. If nothing, move on for a block. Then try again. If nothing, move on entirely. The audience has mostly turned over anyway at that point. But to do that you have to be ready with alternative content without relying on your phones. If you're the kind of jock with a lot in the head you're good, otherwise bring a stack of show prep or notes on things you might do. Begging looks bad to fellow jocks and staffers, to your boss, to the consultants and corporate who might be in town, and it sounds bad on your tape and is useless when making a demo. Notice I didn't put listeners in there. They really don't care unless you're literally whining and you're dedicating more than one break to sounding pathetic.
