Calmer Waters

Saturday, October 4th's show was wwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy better than the September 27th show because I felt better about the music.  The music spoke to me during the week as I spent nearly 4 hours in preparation just listening to the type of music I prefer.  Doing that lead me to a deeper feeling of solitude during the actual delivery.  I didn't feel wiped out by what I was lplaying/listening to like I did last weekend.  Last weekend I had music that weighed me down and actually gave me a headache.  When you run the board, make the announcements, select songs to play, try to match tempos, answer the phone, let people in the building, keep your logs, and remember what CD player you put the next song in, all that al

Jumped In With Both Feet

Well, I sat in the hot seat last weekend, Saturday, September 27, as I hosted my first music show; filling in for Deena...thanks to Brooke, my partner in crime that night, I wouldn't have gotten through that first hour without you...thanks again.  I'm hoping I can develop another voice by jumping in where I can while attempting to carve out a show that has an impact or at least some meaning.  Either in a talk show, interview style format with Bread and Roses, which airs Friday at 6pm or discovering messages in the music that can be called out and left for the listeners to ponder...planting the seed...food for thought.
