How could I forget. I pitched a Christmas show called “O Soulful Night” to Radio 2 with my friend Jeanette Cabral, the music programmer there. It got approved (!) and aired December 24th night on 94.1 in Toronto.
I know – where’ve I been? Well I’ll tell you.
For six months I was filling in at Radio 2 producing and directing Molly Johnson for the weekend morning show. Now I’ve moved on. I am currently writing features for Radio 2. It’s something that is now getting much more attention in the vetting stage so there is lots of thinking before writing and thinking about writing. Drains my brain and makes me nervous but the process is great and I know I’ll come out the other side with better skills. It actually occurs to me that I used to want more “school/learning” in my life. Well, this is it.
I know – crazytown. But I did it, with lots of help and looking like a lost bunny. I think it sounds all right, but I’ve got much to learn in the way of interviewing and achieving a more natural sound.
Either way, it was good times and I’m doing it again this week!
Been a while since I’ve let you know what’s going on. Why? Busy! And that’s a good thing. A few things have changed since you last read: I started producing features on Radio Two, wrote some shows for GO! and hosted another Sistahs Concert. I’m about to embark on another tour with the 411 Initiative for Change, and the summer has me working with the amazing Garvia Bailey.
Oh – and I got engaged! Not work related, but it does put a nice sunny glow over it all.
If you want to know a bit about the engagement (it happened on a trip to Ghana!), click on my post with Coco&Lowe here.
