I had an interesting conversation the other day, I was asked if I wanted to go back on radio.  I've been off air for a while and moved into Television, which poses the question, which is the better medium.
Music has always been my first love.  It's why I got into the whole industry to begin with.  It is also why I did radio, because I enjoyed it, and when I felt that it was a chore and too political, as it usually does, I left.  I did not join another station as I had other things to pursue. Since then I've been producing shows and it's been just as gratifying.  Funny how people perceive  it as dropping off the scene.  I just was not interested anymore 
So I'm thinking to myself, do I really want to do this...? and strangely enough my first reaction is no.  I don't.  I think the radio industry is stagnant, there is nothing new, the formats are all the same and not one single station has anything extraordinary to offer. Whereas creating and producing my own show for television gives me an incredible buzz, the kind I used to get just before I went in to spin in a Club, watching the people from my booth, enjoying the atmos and pushing myself to see how well I could rock the house that night. I've even conceptualised a show based on music that I'd like to bring to the viewers eventually.. but that's another story. So I guess for now, I'll keep to the production side of things, and give radio a miss, until that is a station comes around and grabs me by the .....
