After a day of letting things settle out after the transition, I am very pleased to announce HotTrax new channel “HotTrax Pulse” !  This new channel replaces HotTrax Live and is focused predominantly on the Adult Contemporary genre.   Like all HotTrax channels, HotTrax Pulse will be streaming great current hits 24 hours a day.  If you enjoy this sort of music, please give it a listen and let me know what you think!  You can tune in HERE.

My very sincere thanks to DJs Ace, Figgis, and Pandamonium, all of whom were instrumental in getting this transition done in a timely fashion!!

For a few days this past week, I actually thought I would get away with having a birthday over which my radio friends did not make a big deal!

I could not have been more wrong!  Last night, during Bad Karma’s show, once again my radio family showed me their love by giving me a fantastic online birthday party!  You would think by now that I would expect it (and in truth, I sorta did) but when it didn’t happen on the weekend OF my birthday, I thought maybe I’d gotten away clean.  Once again they outfoxed me and surprised me with a six hour gala of my favorite music and recorded personal greetings.

These parties are always tremendous fun, but I must admit that they make me just a little uncomfortable.  I suppose it’s because I am a more outwardly emotional person than I am comfortable with being.  Normally that’s not much of a problem at all, but I find all the personal greetings and well wishes choke me up and bring the tears pretty easily.

Yeah, I know… I should just suck it up and live with it.  After all, no one would go out of their way to make me feel uncomfortable on purpose.  I guess I am just one of those people for whom certain things penetrate deep within me.  I suppose that puts me in relatively good company, given our new Speaker of the House, John Boehner, seems to have the same affliction!  Wow, I actually have something in common with one of the few politicians for whom I have some respect.

ANYWAY, I want to thank each and every one of my friends for all the love and support they give me, and for all they do for our station! You are all,

Simply the Best!

… that something big was about to happen?  I don’t know about you, but I have noticed recently that although part of my mind would just like to kick back and rest for a while, the OTHER part of my brain seizes the opportunity to grab more knowledge and info and stuff itself absolutely FULL.  This then spills over into more projects with which to become involved!  Here’s the short list of my new and ongoing projects if anyone is interested:

  • Android App Development
  • A new blog for Mid Missouri Networks
  • Creating some new Video Blogs (I need my head examined, honestly!)
  • HotTrax Live to HotTrax Pulse Migration
  • HotTrax Remote development (Virtual Basic Development)
  • This personal blog (because SOMEONE needs to document the insanity!)

And of course, there’s always the ongoing support and management of the radio station and it’s DJs.

If you were to ask me why I am taking on so many projects at once, I’d tell you “Well, the boy just ain’t right!”  Call me crazy, but I have a very good feeling about the potential for some breakthrough success this year.  My mind is a buzzin!
