JD's Blog, a place where sight and sound have no meaning, where time and space are illusions, and where a DJ posts his slightly off-kilter take on this, that, and the other thing.
 
I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to get paid to do it. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I play several musical instruments and write books for fun. And I'm a huge fan of the Philly teams: the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers.

Three Hectic (But Good) Days

by JD posted Sep 10 2013 10:57PM
What a weekend it was...Pickin' In the Panhandle Friday and Saturday and the Walk with Tori Sunday. It was my first time attending both of these events and I have to say I was extremely impressed with both, although I must also admit I all but collapsed from exhaustion when I got home Sunday evening.

For starters, being at Shiley Acres for Pickin' I couldn't help but note the number of people there who had a strong love for bluegrass music. The performers' zest for the music was infectious and spread through the audience. It was a great thing to behold. Also, those of us in attendance from the radio station were given a warm and friendly welcome from everyone who stopped by our tent to say hello. When we went onstage for announcements we were greeted enthusiastically. In such an environment it is impossible not to have a great time.

Then on Sunday, the walk brought out all kinds of people united in a cause: to support Tori and raise money towards research and development for a cure for scleraderma. It was very heartening to be a part of such a unifying event, and hopefully Tori's courage in coming forward and sharing her own experience will help to raise public awareness of the condition as all those involved continue to work towards the goal of eradicating scleraderma.
