Yes, it was a thrill for me! They say once you’ve got something in your “blood,”..you can never get rid of it? My last gig in radio was at KDAT-FM (Merced)(1989-1991) at that time we were still using CDs and Cassettes, the slide controls replaced the “Old Knobs” (“Pots”). I suppose that given enough time that you could get used to the new surroundings and get comfortable with the equipment.
I don’t listen to local radio anymore, as I am a subscriber to Sirius XM…why??…I feel that there are “tons” of music out there…and yet…you’re limited. Also was interesting to find out that there are no more “all-nighters,” anymore! Like life…radio has changed and nothing is the same anymore!…But it was fun and would do it again ( in a Modesto minute)… hopefully, next year! In other words…KEEP ON TRUCKIN’
