In the past several months, I've been communicating with folks who are or have been in either radio, television, or both. I've had some dialogue with disc jockeys, board operators, producers, salespeople, etc. I've gotten insights that I wouldn't otherwise have gotten. No matter what capacity these folks are or were in, they were in love with the business, and show a definite passion for it.
I was checking the comments on my blog today and noticed one from Mike Dane, who is one of the dedicated volunteers who do a very professional job on the Sunday Oldies Jukebox. That's a group of folks who love what they are doing, and do their absolute best at it.
And speaking of work to love, my wife started her new job this week as a home health aide. She had done this kind of work before, but the kids were young and she was needed at home more at the time. Now with the kids all grown and either in college or married, she can devote time to this work. She had been a retail clerk but hated it.
My son is going to college and studying music. He hopes to have a career in some aspect of the music field when he graduates. My oldest daughter is studying to be a dietician, and is driving me nuts at times telling me what I can and can't eat(I'm diabetic). My other daughter is majoring in special education and will be doing student teaching shortly. I wish them all well.
I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
