Thanksgiving is upon us. A time for reflection and gratitude. Here’s my thanks for this year. KVMR; You are an awesome family! I’m grateful for the opportunity to have become a broadcaster. I’m grateful for the redeyes (yes!) as a place to hone one’s ‘on air skills’ and to gather confidence. I’m grateful to all those ‘seasoned’ broadcasters who have given us the opportunity to sub for them and play music we would not usually play when doing our ‘regular’ (loose term) redeye.
Choosing a show is more fun than I might have imagined, playing personal favorites, one thing leading to another, and finding those ‘forgotten tracks’ as well as new and unheard of musicians.
I’m grateful for those listeners who actually take the time to call in with appreciation for a particular track, or a show in general. If ‘they’ only realized how one call makes a huge impact! Especially at three in the morning. If you ‘touch’ one listener, it is worth all the effort put into compiling a show. In short: Thanks for the opportunity, thanks for the new experiences, thanks for the new-musical awakening, thanks to all those amazing broadcasters to learn from with the sultry voices, to the chucklers, to the very knowledgeable, to the overall range of personalities who make up this family to keep it the best little station this side of the Mississippi! Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!
