I always wanted to be a radio DJ

Thinking about where I am now, and what I do... I realise I should have been a radio dj circa 1978; my jokes make the ones in Christmas Crackers look good, my grasp of reality is slim - meaning that imaginary dogs like Arnold could form part of my show; and my taste in music... while varied, is pretty much non-threatening for the most part and good listening.

I should have realised this, when a fair amount of my early childhood was spent with an old record player and a cassette recorder; constantly making my own "radio shows"; unfortunately most of these are long and gone - the advent of cassette-based computer programs caused much of that early unbridled creativity to be forever lost. C'est la vie.

In this day and age, I could easily set up my own radio station; technology is pretty simple and easy to use... so why don't I? Too much effort. Too much effort and all that copyright and royalties stuff. Look at BBC Radio; although you can listen to their streamed media, you can only download "music-free" highlights of shows in their podcasts [although, these are usually quite entertaining and well worth the minute it takes for it to come down]

Maybe one day I'll be a DJ. But maybe I'll go off in another direction. Who knows. I am what I am, where I am. And such is the way things turn out. Like an upside down cake. Don't know how good it's going to be until it's flipped.

Catch you laters
