Depth over distance

I can now successfully boast that I have done a daily morning radio show at Red River College for 11 consecutive weeks. You might find yourself thinking - oh boy, that sounds rough. And let me tell you, many of my friends and colleagues have expressed this sentiment to me. What I want to remind anybody thinking about taking on a project of this size is yes, it can be rough at times, content can be hard to find and you might not have found any new music in a while.

What I have found to be helpful is to make the show about quality over quantity. What I mean is if you don't have enough content for one day don't force it. Play music that you think people will like, if it's older music that's okay. You don't always need to be pushing the envelope to make a show good. But you do always want to keep your finger on the pulse of what your audiences are wanting. 

To sum it, I believe the quote goes like this - You can't stop the waves but you can learn to surf.

I like that quote, and I like this song, maybe you will to.
