Radio talk show request
« on: June 10, 2006, 05:10:14 AM »
Good Evening Forum Friends,

There is a low power Public Radio FM station here on the river.  They call it the Bridge, they broadcast from a church andf the rumor is the transmitter is nailed up to a Redwood tree.  The signal reach is not much more than 5 miles and they tend to play Big Band music from the 40's.

I live a little out of the broadcast signal reach but have heard them a few times and I like what they do on-air.  They are getting the funding and the permits to broadcast over the internet and I have been asked to think about producing a weekly talk show on HIV care and treatment issues.

I am wound up tighter than a mainspring right now with all the politics of the committees, the non-stop requests to volunteer for this and that and I kind of went ballistic in an Executive Committee meeting today, then I regrouped and had a very pleasant visit at Congresswoman Woolsey's staff in her local office.  I hand delivered some signed letters asking her support in reauthorizing an RWCA with sufficient funding.

The radio show decision does not have to made immediately so, I have time to think about format, write an outline, and borrow a production studio for a demo tape.  I had a show in Los Angeles for a couple of years so once I figure out what I want to do, the rest comes naturally.

First step is the introduction... What do you think of, "Thank you for turning me on"?  The show needs a name, how about some ideas?  Have the best day

I think your idea is great.
How about "Thank-you for tuning into me."
Glad to hear that things are finally taking off for you. Go get'em baby!! ;D

You have alot on your plate.  I don't know your goals or time available, but perhaps don't think in terms of producing a weekly show?   Maybe a bi-weekly or monthly show... or 'specials'.   

Oftentimes there's plenty of flexibility.

 You already do so much honey! Don't wear yourself out, you have to have energy for things other than those related to Aids!

Good Afternoon Forum Friends,

My committment with the Funding Allocation Working Group will be over in September.  My blow-up in the Executive Committee meeting was over postponing the funding process until the language in the proposed legislation was cleared up by Congress.  There is no guarantee that Congress will clear up the confusion between "Medical Case Management" and "Case Management."  Those terms can be used to vary the percentage of the upcoming budget for needed case management services.  I used the "F" word in my response, I also used the word "entitlement" because the days of the Dickens character saying, "Please Sir, may I have more?" are over, I am one of three people in this committee who live with HIV, the rest of you draw pay checks.  Funding Allocation will continue as scheduled, with changes made in the process if required.

My visit with Congresswoman Woolsey's staff assures support from her, I do need a break, but timing is of more importance.  I blew off a BBQ with  the Sonoma County AIDS Food Bank today, my friends Don and Julia are on their way down from Chico to visit.  We are going to have a weekend of fun and our own BBQ.  For a straight guy from San Francisco, Don, with no background in HIV, Don is an excellent chef on the grill.  Julia has a two year old who keeps it simple.  We have the best times. 

The radio show is month's away and I have not even started writing the outline yet.  All of next week is already booked and someday, I will slow down.  Have the best day

I think you should call the show Have The Best Day.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
