For Ken (my brother-in-law) who eggs me on.
Here's to you. You ride me each time we see each other about not updating my blog on a regular basis so this is a short entry to say, "thank you".
You have reminded me that without updates my blog becomes stale. I need your constant reminders to keep my website up to date because without updates this site becomes the very thing that drives me nuts on a daily basis when I visit musicians websites for information only to be met with... the same information that has been there for months and sometimes even... years (gasp)! Updates are an essential strategy for building an online presence. Thank you.
Your reminders, Ken, have pushed me to write this entry where I can share the very exciting news that I am taking on a new role at CBC Radio 2 and on CBCmusic.ca/jazz. Starting on Monday, April 2 I will become the full-time host of Tonic on CBC Radio 2 where I will host each night from Monday - Saturday night from 8-10 PM and Sunday night from 10-11 PM on CBC Radio 1.
This, Ken, is a role that I take on with relish. I am fortunate enough to have a job where I get to listen to jazz and tell stories about it. This is one of the best jobs in the world and I couldn't be more thankful. Thank you for reminding me that I should tell this story.
So in closing, Ken, please keep egging me on. Your methods are thoughtful and non-abrasive. I really do get a kick out of you egging me on... and remember... revenge is a dish best served cold.
Here's to you (and the extra set of eyes you need for looking behind you... because I could be there... when you least expect it).
The video below is for you :-)
