...because it is when I get to "play radio"! I did things backwards. I started working here doing exactly what I love doing...being a DJ. Then...I was "promoted" to assistant program director. Only problem was...we didn't have a program director so I was an assistant to no one. Then...I was promoted to program director. Then to operations manager. Now I oversee 10 people. Me...what happened? My passion is production and voice tracking and on air. Now...I sit in a storage closet that has been semi converted to an office space. I do reports. I monitor 10 stations. I schedule, approve, deny, confirm, promote, eat and sleep...this. I still gather the weather statistics every morning just as I have since 1985. I field calls from people wanting to sell us something...barter something...run their program...air their song...mediate personnel troubles...try not to create new ones...then...at 3pm...I get to enter Studio C...shut the door...put on my cans...make the board hot...crack the mic...and do what I have wanted to do since I was 2 years old..."play radio". Join me for The Ride Home 3pm to 7pm and relax!
