Radio station emcee? Music & musings...stay tuned (on Salt Spring Island)...

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sea to Sky Premier Properties (Salt Spring)

September 13, 2009.

Well, tomorrow (7 to 9 a.m.), I will be doing "Potpourri with Li", on the new community radio station.

With only one tower, so far, the fm bandwith (107.9 fm) is not always available...depends where you are on the Island, so far. They are using streaming audio off the station's website ( ), and so you can pick it up there, if in Fulford, or in Toronto!

It's live, of course.

If you're a presenter, you have to do it all, the tech side/the speaking side.

I'm totally non-tech, so mentioned this to a client, and turns out her husband has experience in a control booth!

Great...he's willing to be my "producer".

Together, we'll turn up at 6:45, at the station, and with any luck, it will all flow smoothly, between 7 & 9 a.m. If we live through it, we'll do it every Monday.

Wow! Not sure how I got from agreeing to read station "id" announcements, and to advertising my listings (I read my own ads) & then into doing a morning show, but it should be fun.

No real estate...just music and musings.

The station is in growth mode; this is its official opening day.    Lots of things still missing, of course, including the call-in ability...that comes later.    This introductory show, then, really can't be very interactive...later editions!

If you have a minute, listen in, and all critiques are welcome...ideas for future shows are's live, so I won't be hearing myself, and rely on you to let me know "how it went".    My cell phone will be on vibrate, so if we forget to turn the mic on, someone call me, or email me!

Thank you!

A radio show that can't have call in capability... I would bring a guest in or it will be a lot tougher than you think! I was a DJ for 18 years and when those phones went down, it was a very very very long hour!
