My first Radio boss was a DJ by the name of Jimmy Darin who was also the program Director of the Radio Station we worked at in Winnipeg at CKY. Jimmy was married to a beautiful Woman named Babs with whom he had two kids named James and Crystal and because I was only a kid too he was like a father figure to me. Almost everything I was ever lucky enough to achieve in Broadcasting probably can be traced back to his inspiration and brilliant teachings. Jimmy had met Babs early in his career when he was jocking at a small Radio Station in Wichita Falls Texas and when they were first married he explained to her that they would be moving around a lot as he pursued his dream of working in the “Big Apple”. Meanwhile though he impressed upon her their short term goal was to chase the money. He cautioned her not to get too involved in the community or make too many friends because if somebody somewhere was willing to pay him fifty bucks a week more they were as good as gone.
A couple of station moves later, Jimmy who was still in his early 20’s was summoned to the owner’s carpeted big corner office where he was informed that the board had just voted him in as their newest Vice President. Jimmy was thrilled with the announcement of course but was also somewhat shocked and surprised that a special honor like this was being bestowed upon him at such an early age and he could hardly wait to share the good news with Babs. When the meeting was over and all the congratulations were finally done he rushed to the phone and almost shouting into it and said, guess what Chipmunk they just made me a V/P of the Radio Station and I am so stoked about it. She excitedly responded with … That’s great! How much does it pay?
I think if bullets were tougher to get we might have a better chance of surviving.
If it was also tougher to get married maybe marriages would have a better chance at surviving.
Deborah Cremer wrote after reading my Blog “To Tat Or Not To Tat” that she thought I should let Cami have the Tattoo mainly because she had a good cause and she sold it real well. She claimed she is still pissed at her kids because when they turned 18 they got one and it absolutely stands for nothing!
When I posted a recent Blog on Facebook called SCAM ALERT about an hour later my stats page claimed over 2000 people read it. I called my tech guy and told him my stats page counter is screwing up and must be adding 0’s to the real count. He called me back and said no the counter is working fine but now you are up to over 6000 people have read your Blog and it’s gone viral Man. Wow!
This just in, surprise surprise the scammers check bounced and even though they over communicated with me sending 105 texts in two days, when I informed them the check bounced and wondered if they were still expecting my report, they never replied. Strange(-:
