a crack in your ear through which sound surreptitiously slips, or an illicit substance which gives your ears immense pleasure while enslaving them to a crippling addiction

if you have come to complain, there's a better place to go (and no, it's not hell)

Producing a new show from scratch is challenging, and often very rewarding. I really enjoy figuring out what works, what doesn't, how to fix it... alongside more practical matters like, how to get that all done before 7:00pm every day.

And through the wonder of the internets, you can measure your show's impact on the listening audience. It's true. Just read this. And this. Some people like the show. Others don't. Some even imagine that one of our writers Brian Donovan resembles a handheld device or implement, perhaps used to hammer nails or saw wood. (He's actually a very nice and talented guy).

Some people have even taken to leaving their comments on the quality of our radio program here, on this very blog. But alas, I'd like to keep this more of a personal space, a place where I can post my side projects, or info on radio pieces airing. (btw, City X aired in Minnessota this week!)

So... If by chance you have stumbled upon this blog and don't know me, and you have some kind of complaint about the radio show "PRI's Fair Game with Faith Salie" (which I happen to be working on at the moment), kindly do not post to this blog. Or at the very least, don't do it anonymously -- criticism is meaningless without the context of knowing what a person typically likes or dislikes. There are some people whose negative opinion of my work I would take as a supreme compliment. But if you feel the urge, you can always vent your frustrations here:


If I already know you personally, and you have something you want to tell me about the show, please by all means do. But send it to my personal email account. Only do this if I ALREADY KNOW YOU.


The Managment

P.S. Sorry I haven't been posting in months, starting a new show like this is very time consuming. I hope to be posting more frequently soon. Finishing up a pop song that I'll post exclusivly to this blog, PLUS more videos of cats and babies, and maybe even some animation for your amusement!!! Stay tuned....
