Part of my job at the radio station is interviewing artists and organizers about upcoming concerts and festivals. One topic that comes up time and time again is the importance of experiencing a live event. Now, I don't want to disparage the value of a good recording (especially since I have a few of them … Continue reading A Shared Experience
It's about time I put up a new post. It's also about spending time, about making time, and about time passing. Every week, I found myself thinking, "I need to post something - I'll get to it soon." Before I knew it, "soon" was long gone. Though I will say that I've spent a lot … Continue reading It’s About Time
New Year's Eve is here once again, and I have just enough down time today to reflect on this past year. Free time is a bit of a rarity for me recently! A lot of positive things have come to fruition this year. "Dreamcatcher" was released in July (you can hear it here, or purchase … Continue reading Rolling Into 2018
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. Things are great! I walk into the radio station every morning … Continue reading Two Years and Counting
I admit, I've been neglecting my blog. It's been an incredibly busy year, and I haven't had a lot of time to reflect. But it's New Year's Day, and I'm fighting the start of a cold, so it seems the perfect opportunity to take it easy and catch up on a few things. Including the … Continue reading And the Calendar Takes Another Turn
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
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. I must confess that most of my previous "whirlwind years" have been primarily due to hardships - illness, financial struggles, and so on. But this past year has been verrrrry different! This … Continue reading 2016 Already?!?
Working full-time as an administrator (or whatever) meant my musical ambitions would be at the mercy of the needs of my non-musical job. So together, my husband and I decided that I would not take a job that was not musically-related, and we would make whatever sacrifices were necessary in order to allow me to pursue my music.
Here we are at the end of yet another year. It seems 2014 has flown by so quickly! But it's been a good year. If I had to put my feelings at this moment into a single sentence, it would be this: I had a ton of fun in 2014, and I am looking forward … Continue reading On New Year’s Eve
I discovered something during my time in public radio. I'm pretty good at begging for money! Twice a year we had a pledge drive, and teamed up in pairs to ask our listeners to pledge their support to the station. We had hourly goals, and almost every time, whether I was the host or the … Continue reading Learning How to Ask
