I’m excited to be going to the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas in a few weeks. Before I started a career in software sales (ahem, 25 years ago!) I lived a life as a radio disc jockey. These were the days before digital. Well, almost before digital. The radio stations I worked at used CDs, but I cut commercials on reel to reel tape. Yay for splicing! Over the past year and a half, I started my own internet radio station at home. I play classic rock 24/7, and I’ve learned a lot about how to produce a quality music stream. Now, at work, I’m investigating radio/podcasting for a SAAS product we’re spinning up. It’s exciting to be able to get back into the radio thing after being out for so long. I hope to learn a lot at NAB, and bring home some intel on hardware, software, and engineering tips.
