I have a radio show for three hours later this evening.
There have been times that I’ve dreaded it. Physically, this is one of those times: the other night I ate a piece of pie that had been heated to the point that it burned my esophagus going down and now swallowing almost anything feels like a punch to the solar plexus. Mentally, though, that’s not the case.
The show requires that I connect with our audience through our IRC channel and optionally another gaming outlet. That connection does me a lot of good, since it’s conversation with a lot of people about a lot of things. It allows me to interact with people I wouldn’t otherwise be interacting with, and lately I’ve been craving that interaction.
I think when I’m feeling better (it actually hurts to talk somewhat) I’m going to try one of those alternate outlets in addition to the IRC channel. I think the environment would be a good one for me mentally speaking and the audience would be appreciative of the dual presence.
I try to stop short of promoting my shows here on WordPress, although I will do so on Facebook. The show focuses on Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and so the music is across the board, just like the Hall, and somewhat whiplashy from song to song. If you have an interest in checking things out, send me a message and I’ll try to answer as soon as I can.
