WHY I AM SO DISENCHANTED?
Is it the fact I am not in radio day-day any longer and I am simply pissed? - What makes me so mad is the fact that I was an entertainer as a talent and worked for great radio stations like KCBQ, KSLQ, WPEZ, KFRC, KIIS, KWSS, KDKB, KWK, KZPS, KFRC-FM and more and most of the 70's we just rocked it hard and through the 80's when it began to circle from an entertainment art form to a sales business venture, where it landed in the 90's, I had no preparation for the administrative end of radio. I only knew the show-biz and entertainment end.
I think this is why I liked working for Citadel prior to Suleman and Ellis under Larry so much. It had the entertainment and arts end meshed well with the sales and business side of radio. I was always considered over the top and defined as a mad genius. This didn't sit well with some managers and operators over the last decade and here I am writing this. Writing it because, I can't figure out if the business sucks or I just think it sucks because I can't work in it again for a multitude of reasons.
