Art is simply making something out of nothing then selling it.
 
Unlike the rest of show business, in radio the sales department seems to have all the power so lets just blame the whole mess on them.
 
In the 60’s the CEO’s of companies made 40 times as much as their staffs but now they make 400 times as much. Is it just me or does that also make you want to vote for whatever political party they are against like America did in the last presidential election.
 
For whatever reason decent wages never show up until you’re 40 if even then.
 
Speaking of money, Joe Amaturo claimed he never made any real money until he was 65.
 
Someone once said that living in California was like being in High School with money.
 
I would suggest that to all air talent that their first goal should be to become as good as they already think they are.
 
In the early days Paul McCartney’s father in law told him never to invest in anything he didn’t know. Obviously our radio leaders didn’t know him.

Of all the things I have been accused of normalcy was never one of them.

In order to succeed one must use all the gifts God gave them.

When was the last time big business created any jobs.

  1. You are so right George…”Most accountants can’t tell the difference between good and bad talent.”

  2. I always meant to ask you Geo, where do all the above sayings come from in your blogs? Hard to believe that one man has that much knowledge about the world…..original opinions as well! OMG so, so many!!!
