More
April 18, 2000: Turning shy off Two months from thirty-eight—twelve years from fifty. If I don’t protect my future, I’ll be selling cigarettes at a Circle K. I may live this life…but I’m not in control of it. Allow me to learn defeat. Don’t offer me a Band-Aid or something to drink—I can do it! Not because I want it to be mine…somewhere along this path, I forgot to learn how to be me.

The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 103

4/19/2018
More
I think we'd be fibbing if we shouted out, "I never say things like I truly don't know where I am right now." The problem with modern day technology is the lack of GPS systems that put the right direction in our daily decisions and choices. One minute cannot be compared to another. Hitting walls is our natural walk. Instead of walking through it the decision is to go around or back off all together. What if that's not where you should've grown? My Master in Martial Arts used to tell me to...

Utilizing What We Believe

Being a daily writer invites me to also be a daily listener. I love sitting in open spaces paying close attention to how people share their methods of conversation. Sure its the radio guy in me looking for newer ways to communicate without having to rely on too many words or overused methods of inflection. In these moments of listening as well as writing the one thing heard the most is how people tend to say, "Well I believe." Which is nothing more than what we in radio call a crutch. "Well...

All in all it was a pretty safe and injury free induction into the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame. Sure there was a no show from Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits but everybody else showed up including Howard Stern. He made it clear that radio has always had a connection with the artists and it should be preserved. How though is the Hall going to change in an age where it's no longer about collecting albums but rather collecting downloads. We took that question straight to Sal who was there.
