The following is a new blog posting as of April 28th, 2018.
As many of you have already have read or heard, the plan is for KB Radio and its sister Country station to go dark and silent as of May 1st. Let me begin by saying thank you to so many of you who offered well wishes, support and thanks for the work I have done. There have been generous offers to help with easing my work load etc if it will mean the difference in shutting down or not. I had suggestions on how to make changes some good, some interesting, and some, well, some just interesting.
I appreciate that each and every email sent has been sent with good intentions, but I am not looking for assistance in operating the stations. My plans were to go forward and expand, but it turns out the timing was just wrong. I have a habit of keeping myself busy when dealing with stress to keep my mind off of things, and while the expansion ideas were sincere, and realistic, it was just with so much else going on outside of the radio portion of my life that it truly was silly to have even stated it.
I know a few people know what is going on in my personal life, within my family, and that is the leading factor in my decision. I cannot stay focused enough to put out a good product when i do the live shows. When the microphone goes on, I am just fine usually, but the moment it goes off, the life drains out of me. I have worked very hard, with help of course, to build this to the level it has gotten to. I refuse to put out a poor quality product, so it is better in my mind to not do it at all.
With that said, and after a lot of discussion with Veronica Phillips who I have come to count on a great deal with not just the Country station operations, I have decided instead of going off the air, we will leave both stations broadcasting as is, but with no live shows for the foreseeable future.
