This is National Disc Jockey Day. A day to celebrate the people who play the music.
I've worked with and met a lot of 'em over the years and you won't find a group of more quirky, picky professionals in any other industry. Oh, I've got stories.
I've learned our listeners appreciate the good work we do. In fact, it was just a few years ago when one of our "Greatest of All Time" was back on the radio for the first time in a long time.
Barrie Vice, who moved into a full time programming job years ago, had to fill in when we were facing some staffing issues over on Country 100 - our sister station. He hosted the afternoon show for a week straight.
The following week, we got an e-mail from a long time, loyal listener who wanted us to know he was really enjoying "that new guy doing afternoons on Country 100."
Oh, we laughed. The new guy...with about 35 year of experience under his belt. Ya, he's pretty good alright.
