I have had a number of other experiences in my life including cohost of a radio show and owner of Century records. Our radio show was a half hour of good news. We looked for special people, events and activities that represented good news. We interviewed governors, military leaders and school officials always looking at the positive side of who they were and what they wanted to accomplish. We found many small businesses in the community who rarely received notice, but were a significant part of the fabric of the locale.
In all cases, we worked for form a Negative Neutral Zone that would provide information that would make the listener feel good about their environment and have positive expectations fro tomorrow.
You can visit the site I have created to try to recapture that positive energy of our lives. Certainly, the media of today chooses to work on the more negative elements.
