Love Me, Love My Podcast…

Hello! I hope your American Independence Day Holiday was enjoyable.

If you’re visiting from France, please accept felicitations for a happy upcoming Bastille Day, and if you’re my Mom, Happy Birthday in just a few days!

It is with the greatest pleasure that I once again post a Rick Stevens “Diesel Sweeties” cartoon:

R Stevens Diesel Sweeties podcast

Having spent some 20 years in Radio, I can relate to the needy little hipster who hungers to confirm that SOMEBODY is listening to his stuff.

My earliest professional experience was on small, low-power daytime AM Radio Stations, whose audiences were limited to those living within a 15-mile radius of the transmitter.

You could describe their formats as “niche programming”, but a more candid adjective would have been “desperate”.  In the business, such stations are broadly described as “a dollar a holler”, which is meant to be a disparaging description of their advertising rates.

I happen to be personally acquainted with more than a few people who podcast.  It’s very similar, but it’s not the same.

I wish them all the best.

Thanks for visiting my humble blog!

Please come back again soon!
