On The Road to find work
Radio-Info and Tom Taylor's section just ran an article this week regarding a group of Canadian broadcasters that are on the road looking for jobs and appraising the job outlook in Canadian radio. I did this in 1974 after losing my first job in radio, we hit the road in California, armed with air checks and resumes. When we ran low, we would dub reel-reel air checks on Ampex 660's at stations we visited. From Santa Ana through The Central Valley, we stopped everywhere we could. On the return down the coast, we were both hired at KXFM Santa Maria by Billy Brill. Anyone doing this would really stand out this day in age.
