Today I love being that guy on the radio and that’s a lucky thing because today is the day that I’ll be finishing up this Sunday’s show recording. I love that I have found several ways of producing a show and the one that seems to fit best for me is to write in advance rather than as I go, because I can work on my script anywhere and any time that way and record it in one session. I love that I have been entrusted with this task, because it seems to me that no matter how many people might be listening, the real job is to respect them and make sure they enjoy what we do. I love that we are air wave emissaries for Summerfolk, and musical diplomats for the folk genre and I love that I get to be those things and do this job. I love Georgian Bay Roots Radio. I love that I got another royalty payment for a song I wrote a few years ago that was performed by friends of mine in sanctioned venues that make the cogs of the SOCAN counters click over and add up. I love SOCAN, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada for their diligent efforts in making sure that written music isn’t something we have to guard jealously.
Today I love feeling tough and strong, even when I don’t. I love that I am still going, that nothing I’ve endured has killed me thus far and I expect to go a long while yet. I love that I may be feeling a bit off these days but I keep on going and have no intention of not loving every day of my life. I love that I’m the guy who loves that feeling off is a good excuse to watch a movie, and on the days when I’m good to go, I love to go!
Today I love being a funny talkative guy and how big a role that has played in my life, allowing me to MC shows and host open mics and do radio and television shows. I love that it first manifested itself in my youth when my brother and I would perform anywhere my mother took us to play and then in my teens when I became an auctioneer. I love that there are people who won’t come near me because I talk too much, but that’s no ones loss, least of all mine. 😉 I love that I’ve been working really hard on not talking so much these last few years and I think it’s paying off, so those of you that know me now and think I talk too much, you should write a “Today I Love …” and say that you love that you didn’t know me way back when.
Today I love drinking coffee near all the really expensive hardware while I record my show for Sunday.
