But in radio, there can be no long pauses...even though the host may have no guest on for up to 30 minutes, you, as the host, have to continue to talk, fill air time, remain enthused, until commercial break or guest or caller arrives.
But it can be enjoyable also. Radio, when good at it, can be much more rewarding than a blog.
There's more electricity you get from interacting with real live people, than the interaction you get from blogs.
Radio is like static, blogging is more like dew, wet morning dew left over from the night.
But you have to have the personality for it...and 15 minutes in reality can seem like an eternity if you have nothing to say, no passion, no ideas.
It's not as easy as it seems...but I'm trying to get back into it. Cause you can meet wonderful people by doing so....and some rotten apples to, but at least while on air you can squelch them immediately, or they you.
It's just more fun.
To be continued...

Talk radio may be 'hard' as above post said nearly 4 years ago...(wow how this forum board has history to it...wow)...
But hard or not, I'm back into radio, and why not around here as much as I use to be, in that radio, online radio, much more stimulating...the cast, and personality of this board, here, has basically been transfered to amfm247.com
Radio or Podcasting, is just more fun...yet to me old style forum boards like this still serve a purpose...in that sites like twitter and FB are so phony now, where people's posts are 'shadow banned' by heavy handed moderators...(oddly enough that use to be the issue with forum boards and is what ultimately made me create this site)
I like this site 'as is'...so don't feel sorry for me...I like it 'as is', and so do others who come here to read...it's a silent quiet Mansion of thoughts.
Large empty echoing rooms of former sentiment, life and ghosts...a special place indeed...
With this ghost revisiting, now and then, just as ghosts do.
