Inspired by listener feedback…
With everything that goes on in this world, with life at times so complicated and so difficult for so many people, I occasionally ask myself what the hell I’m doing. I’m a radio DJ. I get paid to play and talk about music every day…that’s my job. I keep up this little blog on the side because I can reach out to even more people to share what I think is quality music.
On Saturday, I was live on the air for the afternoon and I had a blast. I played a lot of artists I thought were new and exciting and took a lot of listener requests which is always fun. I sat alone in the studio, cut off from the outside world for 6 hours, and enjoyed some good music. But what did I accomplish?
That night my boss forwarded me a listener email from Heidi in Texas, who was streaming my afternoon shift online while at home. She wrote, “I was working on a photo project and the music was perfect for inspiring/supporting me as I created. I was really happy…with my work, the music, the world…”
So, I was reminded of why I do what I do. If I can reach out to even just one person and make them feel that way for a little while, even for just one song, I’ve done my job.
