Remembering The Man Who Sparked My Interest in Radio!

Fifty Two years ago, I got the bug to get into radio. Each morning I would wake us to the voice of Harry Harrison on WABC. His genuine style along with the music he played made me always feel safe and positive. He never degraded or said anything derogatory about anyone. Listening to him always made me feel that he had a personal connection to his listeners. I wasn't wrong. He answered every letter that I wrote to him and invited to his show twice. I was honored to have met him and always held the advice he gave me close to my heart. I live by his standards every time I open the mike on Edgewater Gold Radio.

Talk To Your Listeners

I was scanning some internet radio stations the other day and I noticed the same thing over and over and over. Music music music Jingle music music music. At one point I heard three songs in a row then a temperature check. It sounded like this right out of a song. "It's 85 degrees" and that was it then right back into another song. Very very bad programming! I know many people run internet radio stations as a hobby but if you don't try to reach out to your listeners, what's the point? Your stream is only a jukebox. I recommend lots of imaging telling your audience who you are and what your do. Also talk to your audience and provide some kind of knowledge and information. It makes a differe

Don't Get De Frauded in Today's Complex Online World! -----I Did!

Most of us love great technology but when something goes wrong we are usually stuck holding the bag. Since mostly everything is done on online, companies Customer Service is also online. The only problem is that it avoids contact with a real person. When you try to navigate the complex menus as you desperately search to find a contact number or e-mail, we are usually left scrambling around until our heads are about to fall off! The bottom line is that large companies don't want us to talk to a live person. They want to collect their money and leave the rest to a useless array of un-useable links on their websites. If we do get to a customer service person, they usually can't provide much if

Concerts are Looking Quite Different this Summer

Summer is a time for outdoor concerts at one of the many great venues around the country but this year will be much different. Gathering in large crowds is a "no no" due to the Coronavirus that has devastated this country. Cases are surging but businesses are opening up hopefully taking the proper precautions. One of the main venues for outdoor concerts here in southern Delaware is the Freeman Stage. Here's an article that appeared in the Cape Gazette highlighting how the venue is holding events and precautions that are being taken. Even though care is being taken to ensure the safety of concert attendees, I would not feel safe at any of these events so I've decided that I will avoided al

Coronavirus - The Youth Just Don't Get It!

Each day I tell my listeners to be safe, social distance and wear a mask when in public. There is so much division going on during this pandemic. We need to create our own new normal. We also need to get it through the head of young people that wearing a mask and getting tested doesn't only help them but it helps others. They just don't seem to get it. I was discussing testing here in Rehoboth Beach with a very young neighbor here in our community. I asked him if he got tested since it's being offered for free in many places. His response to me was "I have no symptoms." I stressed that you don't need to have symptoms to have Coronavirus and there are lots of people who never get symptoms. It

Glad That We Have The Music We Grew Up With To Listen to Today!

As I get older, I drift further and further away from the music of today. It's become irrelevant and basically not listenable to me. There are some really talented, good artists in today's mix of hip hop and pop but I can't listen to a pop radio station and wait to hear the one or two I may like so I stay away from it altogether. Yesterday, as I was watering my lawn, a car full of young kids came speeding down the street blasting what sounded like loud explosions, actually it was some pop Hip Hop song that made me stop and just stare. I thought to myself, what is the appeal of this kind of music if that's what they call it? When I was their age, my parents didn't like all of the pop music I
