Sounds and "Sounds of Silence"

DJ Brenda, then DJ Mom, now DJ Nana on KTLO-FM

"Sounds of Silence"

(Ricky asked me about my job and I calculated this answer: that's about 64,000 weather forecasts, over 11,500 interviews, plus 260,000 songs!)
I think there's a Tuesday suggestion for posting a "sound" shot, so here's my entry! For over 30 years, I sat at the same microphone with the same pair of headphones and the same CDs, playing music on a 3-hour-a-day radio show. Simon and Garfunkel were among the listener favorites! This is the "sound" board that I no longer run every day! Retirement is the life!!!
BwannaDon It must be nice... (not to go to work)

lgnelson As much as I love Simon and Garfunkel, and as much as I enjoyed hearing you on the radio, I enjoy both of you when you're playing at my house! hehehe

alicew Great picture! That is a very interesting job, but nevertheless it's fantastic when you don't have to go to work every day.

SusieG Great shot, Brenda!

My daughter worked for a radio and TV news station. Just seeing your photo brings back memories!

Retirement is good for me but I do miss work!

365edgar Excellent photograph Brenda and excellent choice of music-you'll hear lots of Simon & Garfunkel, Harry Chapin, The Grateful Dead and such around the likes of me. I do so love radio~I hope you are enjoying it as well from your different perspective!

thebronzebow There is many a piece of music ruined for me by repetition. Hope that's not true for you. great work!

revenant What a shame Simon and Garfunkel didn't practice what they preach... (Sorry, cheap shot - and an easy one.) Both my parents were radio presenters, firstly in Radio Antilles in the 60s and then in the BBC World Service. Small world.

huiching That's mine and my mother's favorite, Brenda! ^_^

DonnaMK Sounds fun!

????? My ex was a DJ. He once worked at a station in a very small town in Montana. I got to essentially be the program director as, if I liked a song, he could play it and if I hated a song, it got pulled. lol
????? · 2010-03-03: 20:40
????? well set up shot, excellent!!~
