Gotta Love It When A Plan Comes Together

Yep, no question about it, nothing better than seeing a plan come together, especially one that has taken a lot of time and a lot of effort. The harder you work at it, the more satisfaction there when the plan works out. And with regards to BigDawgRadio, there was plenty of work that went into it, so it’s awesome to see it finally panning out.

10 months ago, when I started working with BigDawgRadio, I had a vision of a team of people, all equals, working together to bring a wide variety of music and entertainment to web-based listeners. Yes, I thought that maybe somewhere down the road we would get sponsors or advertisers, and I even considered the possibility of going to satellite or some other media. But the real goal was the team and the high level of energy and entertainment.

Well, that’s finally happened. For the first time since BigDawgRadio started, we have live DJs every night. And frankly, all the DJs are great at their particular genres, and have great on-air personalities. We have a wide variety of genres, with different nights for different styles and audiences, and are interactive with our listeners, making it more than just the music that we provide to our listeners.

But more than that, we really are a team. The DJs I’m working with today are passionate, about the music, about the station, and about life. They seem to love going on the air and giving people a good time, and each one is there for the other, always willing to help if someone needs help with any aspect of a show, or even with life. Being a part of such a team is really amazing!

With the team in place, we can focus on perfecting the schedule to really cater to the listeners. Thursday nights will be Alternative night, with a full lineup of DJs playing some of the best in newer Alternative music. And now Sunday and Tuesday nights will include our first country shows, for those of you with the cowboy boots. Never know, you might even get back your truck and mama after a few nights with Val.

Plus, we’ll be trying out some new types of shows, like the Monday Love Line, where DJ Hippie Chick and I (DJ Nomad) will have back to back shows, with each of us playing music and responding to requests for advice from listeners. We’ll each respond to the same letters, so listeners will get both a male and female perspective on the issues which trouble them. There are even plans for a show about the paranormal in the works!

There are many plans in the works for building the station, and we would love your suggestions. But the best part is definitely the creation of a team of people that are more like a family to me than co-workers. It’s a blast working at the station today, I couldn’t love it more! So come on over to BigDawgRadio, and join in the fun!
