I've really been enjoying my "radio experience".
Last August, the owner of the new community radio station asked if I would advertise on his newly certified/licenced community station. I agreed to do this, as am always looking for ways to get the information on my listings "out there" -- our buyer profile, since about 1999, is not "local".
The Driftwood monthly real estate supplement is only seen when the buyer gets here; it doesn't "bring them". Essential, then, to present where the buyer actually "is" -- otherwise how will they discover us? Thus, the "yes" to the radio station -- will see if that style of advertising works. Too soon to decide!
I did suggest, though, that I do my own ads, and that experience, plus reading station "ids", led to the Monday morning radio show. I was the first show "on air", in mid-September, 2009, on a Monday morning, with a show called Potpourri with Li, and now have expanded to Wednesday a.m., too.
Now called All Things Salt Spring, it's a blend of music that appeals to me (70s, opera, jazz, blues, folk), and interviews with islanders, poetry and "happenings" offered by islanders.
So many talented writers, musicians, artists on this gem of an island, and so many stories to share.
My show is not about real estate, then, but is about the Island and the Islanders. I'm very lucky to live on this special island, and that's the flavour of the show -- we're all lucky to be here!
Hope you will listen and enjoy!
