KYNO was just one of the radio stations that he worked at, but it was the test market for top 40 music back in the 60's. Hubby was program director here, and brought up (trained, helped, taught ) many of the big announcers and radio personalities that we hear today. They were all kids back then, including Hubby, but he always went out of his way to teach these guys professionalism and the business of voice and delivery, so that the station would succeed. It's been heartwarming to hear the personal stories of friendship and loyalty that remain today, all these years later.
We also met with his author friend at a weekly writers group yesterday. Fascinating, it was. They each brought a piece of writing that they had been working on that week and together critiqued the writing and made suggestions. Nothing was held back, everyone was challenged to do better. They've been meeting for 4 years, so they trust one another and respect the honest opinions they shared. How awesome would it be to be part of a group like that!
Hubby's piece of writing from his book was just wonderful. He has a real knack for it, and of course the story about radio is engaging if you were a listener back then.
So we leave again tomorrow morning, heading for southern California for the holidays. CA is expecting rain for the next 5 days, and I'm reminded, not only of just how much it rains during the winter, but why we were so happy to move out of it. LOL!
