We’ve just wrapped Show #6 and I’ve already learned one thing: I love this talk show! Happy, Healthy & Wise allows me to work in media again, and in an entirely new format – live radio! I’ve worked in movies, tv and publishing, but live radio is different. It’s immediate. No second takes. No rewriting the script. The spontaneous anything-can-happy element is what I find so fascinating. It keeps you on your toes, for sure.
We’ve had our share of technical malfunctions, and I had an asthma attack on air last week – Mitch filled in seamlessly until I was able to speak again. We’ve also interviewed an eclectic mix of guests. The show has three focus areas: health & wellness (a broad topic that covers absolutely anything that affects you and your health) help for business owners and entrepreneurs (hey, it’s the Wild West out there!) and travel & entertainment. Our goal is to find the right mix of information, helpful resources and fun for our listeners.
This coming Friday, April 19, we’re going to focus on entertainment and I’m really excited about this show. Why? Because I get to talk about publishing! My guests will be Randy Plummer and Lisa Pitts – both are professional musicians, one is a teacher, the other is a performer. One has written a Christmas fiction story; the other is working on a non-fiction project. We’re going to talk about what it takes to make a living in the arts, and hopefully share some information with listeners who aspire to work in any artistic discipline.
I welcome your calls! Live radio is made for audience involvement, so tune in this Friday at 2pm and give me a call. Thanks for the kind notes of encouragement these past few weeks. It’s been a whirlwind. We have a new show website in the works; it will link you to all our guests and sponsors. That should be up and running soon, so stay tuned.
Have a grand week, and I’ll catch you on the air Friday on Happy, Healthy & Wise!
