    Man, too bad you live so far away.

    I am at the point in my career where I think I am going to put together a morning show from scratch and sell it to syndicators or satelliet radio myself. I am tired of working for other people.

    And I have always wanted to do a music focused morning show, not pop culture/entertainment. Interviews with artists, music discussion.


    Basically, a show for music geeks like me.


    You and or/Jewels would be perfect. No one here (San Diego) seems interested. It probably means a super tight budget and potentially never getting the investment back, as are all risky investments.

    As to my age, I think everyone roughly knows my age range, but I feel that it is immaterial. I wish to be judged, good or bad, on my posts. Not how 'mature' I may seem relevant to may age.

    There has to be SOME mystery, right?

    No sorry, dead giveaway.
    J has other things going on right now & I already do some light work for a station in town just for fun. It was never my intent to turn it into a career. It's more of a passion.

    And YES.........................So off topic.

    And your age tells me that you are about my age, which is around 30. Transformers.........dead giveaway. I like Bumblebee & Jazz. Sound wave was awesome too. I had every Transformer ever made when I was a kid.

    However, I pursued that degree because I was a huge music buff to begin with.



    So, yes, I guess I cheat.



    At something......



    What are we talking about here again?

    Niles is a bad ass guitar player. Plus, he wrote the bass line for "Good Times" which was immortalized by the Sugar Hill Gang and broke rap open to the mainstream.

    More importantly, he has been a key producer for many big breakout albums or songs for emerging or comeback artists:

    Starting with Sister Sledge - "We Are Family"
    Next was David Bowie, who was looking for a musical makeover. Rodgers sure did deliver with 1983's Let's Dance, which remains Bowie's all-time best-selling album. From there, offers from others flooded in, as Rodgers scored further hits -- Duran Duran's Arena, Madonna's Like a Virgin, Mick Jagger's She's the Boss, Jeff Beck's Flash, The B-52's' Roam, and the Vaughan Brothers' Family Style, among countless others.


    Selected stuff he has done that you may not know about:

    So don't be pegging me as some disco queen.
    YOU CHEAT!!! You work for a radio station, don't you?
    You're a music buff cuz that's what you probably do for a living!
    Tell me I'm right. Tell me.

    Reading yours Jared makes me glad I'm a metal head :brick:
    I enjoy metal (classic metal mostly) as much as anyone else. (Maiden, Priest, Anthrax, old Metallica, Megadeth, Sabbath, old Scorpions, A little bit of King Diamond, Motorhead, etc)


    But I appreciate versatility and talent more. Seriously, how many disco types have any sort of career now? Much less with such a wide range of artists?


    Anyway, I thought it would bring a smile to Fred's face after her freak out. That's why I posted.

    And do the billing-
    And order entry-
    And assemble 110 binders with tabs for a new client.


    When it rains it pours. I think I'm going to smoke.

    Then I will come back in and work.
    I was supposed to ahve off tomorrow and Friday.
    Doesn't look as if it's gong to happen.

    I just wanted to rant a minute.

    Okay now I'm done.

    Ugh.... that sucks....

    Push for those days off, Fred.

    REVISED!!! No, I'm not done.

    Perhaps if I use my super powers of disappearing, I will come back at the end of the day and all will be done for me (not hardly, Vick).
    When I go home tonight, I'm going to watch "Office Space" just so I don't feel so bad about my workload.

    OK NOW I'm going to go and smoke.

    I expect a beer waiting for me when I come back damnit.
