Loving the Radio Station

Loving the Radio Station

One thing I must be clear on, I love this radio station and its volunteers.  It has added joy to my life. I believe in it’s mission “Building Community through Open Communication”.  I see the fulfillment and need within the area community from Venice to Punta Gorda over to Englewood.  I’ve already learned so much that I, in a million years, would have never believed or intended I would learn, especially at this stage of my game…you know the game..LIFE.  Many people know me as the lady that wears so many different hats.  It is true.  I wear many hats, real and the other kind.  I’m really involved in community from Punta Gorda to North Port and everything in between.  Blah blah, blah.  But now as I look back I wonder what was RJ Malloy and Gale West thinking when they first started  to recruit me in 2012.  I didn’t come on board till Dec 2015.  Have you heard my voice??  Who wants to listen to that?  But then I realize that I have met many interesting people on my journey through life….and it’s about them…not me.  It is about my passions.  I’ve been given a platform to share those passions  hoping in a small way that  I can enrich, open up opportunities and give a voice to those that may not have a voice.    I’ve always been called the Barbara Walters of my family or the inquisitive one by my fellow leadership peeps.  I’ve always been curious, which has gotten me into trouble a few times in life.    Sure, I’m a believer and support all the other causes, both monetarily and by volunteerism, but in my heart I have a burning desire for the things that bring joy or curiosity to most.  I have met the most amazing volunteers and people/guests.  Not one person is paid at the radio station.  Insane as it may seem, I’ve seen better quality volunteers from admin to tech to show hosts than better than many I have managed through out the years in business.  Those with hidden talents that I don’t even think they knew they had.  I know I have found home.
