We were talking on the radio a few days about being thankful, and how that's great, but you really need to take that gratitude one step further.
I believe you need to tell the people you appreciate that you are grateful for them and what they do for you.
I've been at KDWB since 1993. When I first got here, it was rough. Not many people are willing to accept a new voice on the radio, and for the first year I wondered if it would ever turn around.
But as time went by, not only did things turn around, but I really feel like when I'm on the radio, I'm talking to someone I really care about. Very much like family.
I love my family and I love spending time with them, but when I'm on the air on KDWB, I really feel like that's my second family. I hear your stories, you hear my stories. You laugh at me and I laugh at you. There are many times we roll our eyes at the same things, cry about the same things and are angered by the same things. We disagree on just enough to keep things interesting but never mean or nasty.
Just like family.
So thank you for being a second family to me. There's no other way to describe how I feel about the people who listen to our show. We may never meet in person but I'm certain if we did, we'd hit if off. And if we do meet someday and I say "Thanks for listening to our show", know that I really mean it.
And in case we don't, I'll say it here. Thanks for listening to our show!
Happy Thanksgiving to your and your family!
