I created this photo several years ago of my youngest son when he was just starting out in radio. He began at 18 working at a station as part of a college class and one thing led to another and he was "on air " and clearly making this his career choice. It can be very demanding work, on air, planning promotions ,creating and producing advertising. He always seems to be on the cell phone or doing a remote or taking contest winners to concerts...etc...etc.. The job has it's upside too, free stuff, meeting and interviewing interesting music performers and community based events.
Last year he took his two weeks vacation and spent it here while I was 10 days in the hospital...he was a great help and I truly appreciated his kindness and sacrifice of his precious free time. I was therefore happy to hear he had planned a trip to Hawaii and volunteered to drive him to the airport as long term parking can be expensive. He is visiting a friend who is also in radio so he will get a great tour of Hawaii...party wise! Being mom, yesterday we did a little resort shopping, swim wear and shirts. This morning I was on Hwy 17 at 6am driving with the commuters on a curvy road in the dark with (thank God) just a little fog on the summit. He arrives in San Jose on Sunday at 9pm and if the weather is calm ,we should have an easier ride home.
I'm so sleepy (getting old?) but I'm going to the studio to see what kind of paint I can mix and spread around. Sometimes things work better when you are too tired to care much!
Happy St Patrick's to all of you with wonderful green posts..I'm doing my part by putting a corned beef on for dinner!
