Appreciate Every Second on Earth

One of my most influential DJ's Harry Harrison always said "everyday should be unwrapped like a precious gift." This especially rings true with me at this time. My partner, Jim works at a hotel here in Rehoboth Beach along with another friend that lives in our community. I usually drop them off at work each day and our friends partner, Danny picks them up. It was about 11:15pm on Wednesday, August 26th when I received a call from my partner, Jim saying they were in an accident, please come quickly. I rushed out the door with my heart pounding and my hands shaking. As soon as I turned onto busy route 1, my heart sunk deeply into my chest. I saw a sea of flashing red lights, ambulances, polic

Successful Internet Radio Relies on A Solid, Stable Provider

I've been reading horror stories everyday about an internet radio provider that is so unreliable that leaving broadcasters ripping their hair out and listeners in the lurch. This service is constantly going down, their support is practically non existent and there are frequently long gaps between music segments. Running a business or even hobby is impossible under these circumstances, If doing what you love causes this much frustration, then you must take a deep breath and determine whether or not it's worth continuing. You can have the best equipment, best automation system but if your provider is not reliable, you cannot run a good, solid internet radio station. Luckily Live 365 is Edgewat

John Prines Song Used As A Tribute to Covid 19 Victims At DNC

The DNC Convention really moved me this past week. It was compassionate, informative, truthful and really struck a cord for the heart and soul of all of America. Here's a story from RTT Music news highlighting how a John Prine song was used. It was very touching. The late John Prine's song "I Remember Everything" was used to underscore a tribute video for the victims of the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic at the 2020 Democratic National Convention on Monday, August 17. On the first night of the virtual DNC, a video was shown in tribute to people who died due to the coronavirus. The in memoriam clip featured the last-recorded song from Prine. The legend was hospitalized in late March with

Specialty Radio Shows

I worked for a country radio station in the 1980's, The station played all of the top country hits but also included country gold some of which went back to the 70s. After working there awhile, I was asked to do a specialty show on Saturday nights. It was called The Saturday Night Country Party. Although the show included some of the current country hits, it also included lots of older, classic country. I was able to play Hank Williams Sr. Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash etc. We brought back country from the 50s and early 60s. I am proud to say that The Saturday Night Country Party was very popular. I asked my Program Director why I was able to stray from the main format and he explained that this

Choosing Between Thousands of Radio Stations

The radio landscape has changed drastically over the past 20 years. Satellite Radio was the first innovation that enable listeners to choose over 100 stations anywhere in the US. The only drawback was that it is a paid service. We still have AM and FM radio but their programming is steadily going down hill. There's very little variety and usually these station cater to the very young. As internet radio became increasingly popular and offers a wide variety of formats and programs, making a choice can be a challenge for both the listeners and programmers. My advice to listeners, is to make a list of the types of music or talk that you enjoy most. When you find an internet station that you enj
