These past three weeks have been a lot of fun, but have also involved abundant change revolving around how I handle producing the very first NBA radio program in the history of the St. Louis market. I certainly remain committed to this show, and look forward to doing it for many, many years - as long as I have an available, viable outlet.

I started a new, full-time sports editing position two weeks ago and now have to deal with planning this show with more limited hours in which to deal with the various tasks involved in putting this together each week. But, I’ll just keep offering the best I have, and hopefully I will have more feedback to look forward to in the near future.

I have been working with producers Jon Parker and David Cline, and each is a joy to work with. It is great to be able to have fun and relax in the Sports Radio 1380 studio, and put on the show with such agreeable and mellow personalities. Stress and tension can easily ruin the flow of a radio show, and when I look back at my radio career as a webmaster, this explains much of what I saw go awry behind the scenes.

So .... here is the latest:

Episode 27
