I am a lackadaisical blogger. Forgive me?
I think that I am going to start posting playlists from my radio show here on this ol' blog. I am a volunteer radio host at a fantastic community radio station. It's something I find both fascinating and challenging. I am doing my best to refine my shows, have fun, and be more expressive. The written word has always been a little bit easier for me to tackle, as I have time to edit myself and hit backspace. Broadcasting doesn't allow for that, so it takes planning and thought. I often find myself repeating the same key phrases, which is okay to an extent. "Fantastic local talent" has been creeping up in my on-air vocab waaay more than I like it to. Just need to find new ways of expressing my love for local music, because I do in fact, think it's pretty fantastic!
