I Don't Like, I Don't Like... I Do Like Mondays



In all actuality, I get one day off a week: Tuesdays. So why do I give up my other day off, Monday? Back about 8 years or more ago (I forget sometimes,) I started writing music news for friends which grew into something much bigger. Instead of accidentally rewriting some of the same articles in what would be the 80's Nuts Newsletter, I decided that I would dedicate one day to all my research. There was a time in my life that I cast it all aside for a few months and found that it was a greater part of me than I imagined. So I moved the day to Monday so I can focus on it better. Then a little over a year ago, I began recording that news for radio (www.80sairwaves.com) in a 2 minute weekday segment called the 80's Nuts Update. It became a bit more work than I expected but it is a great challenge. But for all the things that I could be doing with that one day a week, I'm happy in knowing that what started out as fun has become a quest for knowledge that hundreds of people and many radio stations have joined.Posted by Hello

Wow! That's awesome! I commend you greatly for giving up time to do something you love and have a passion for. It's cool that when you took a "break" from it you realized what it meant to you. I'll be checking out the link as soon as time permits, too. I LOVE 80's music! Oh, how I do!

I applaud your efforts. I worked in radio for ~5 years and know how difficult it can be. It is so refreshing to see people such as yourself, pursuing what they love. I am very impressed.

What about the TV show and Time magazine articles also Mart? j/k I am glad that you have found your passion, even if it does interfere with plans occasionally.
