Two Years and Counting

It's coming up on two years now, since I took over as the mid-day host at WCNY.  A lot has happened, and I thought it was probably a good time to sit down for a bit and take stock of how things are going.

A Quiet Saturday Afternoon

Quiet time.  Time to think, reflect - and blog.  That's something that's been missing for a while. Things at the radio station are going very well.  Just like any new endeavor, it's taken a bit of time to settle into a routine.  Not to mention, as I get more comfortable (and folks around the office … Continue reading A Quiet Saturday Afternoon

2016 Already?!?

Wow!  That year just flew by!  I can't believe I'm sitting here, minutes before midnight, looking back on the whirlwind that was 2015.

Embracing Human Limitations

Have you heard the one about the efficiency expert who went to a performance of Schubert's Unfinished Symphony?* Funny?  Sure.  But nowadays, it's not too far off the mark, I fear. I read an article a few years ago (and for the life of me, I can't remember where, or by whom, and I haven't … Continue reading Embracing Human Limitations

When Things Come Together

It's an exciting time!  Rehearsals for the 2014-15 concert season have started, the Brazilian ensemble has had two performances in the last week, with two more scheduled for this week.  The flute choir repertoire is set after our reading session last week, and rehearsals start in earnest next week. And CDs! Last night I got … Continue reading When Things Come Together
