The Caterpillar in the Country Cocoon

The Caterpillar in the Country Cocoon I recently went into a Waffle House for breakfast, because let’s be honest, scattered, covered, smothered, chunked, and topped is the way to go. While I sat there ingesting my heart attack on a plate, I overheard a couple of middle aged, 40 something, year old m...

Killing Yourself As A Creature of Habit

Every morning I get up when my alarm clock goes off, I stumble out of the bed, and wearily make my way to the bathroom where I start the shower to let it get hot, and then stuff a toothbrush in my mouth. I scrub the chompers clean, spit, rinse, and climb into that warm waterfall that awakens my sens...

Re: New PD...can't find something...HELP!

There is an imaging service called short bus radio that is very comprehensive. You can no only get drops but also music beds, imaging work parts, and news audio. The presentation they have is a bit hokey, but if you work with it you can make some pretty awesome sounding stuff off of it. They do bart...

Re: Am I the Only one who doesn't get Bobby Bones???

Countryboy, while I understand your point of view, I respectfully disagree. I am not sure how old you are, or how long you have been in radio, but if it is for any length of time you will remember when local stations used to have the artists call in and stop by. Yes the air personality was the gate ...

Re: Am I the Only one who doesn't get Bobby Bones???

When it comes to the syndicated morning show, it is a necessary evil for large corporations riddled with debt, and budget constraints to be used in smaller markets where the profit margins are questionable at best. Is it a blow to local radio, yes! Is it serving anyone locally, no! I recently had a ...

The Morning Show Meeting... I'd rather go to the dentist!

The wind is blowing, rain coming down sideways in sheets, and it is difficult to keep your car in between the barely visible lines on the road! You tune in to your local c...
