Steve Harvey

I "slug" to work everyday, basically I catch a ride with drivers who want to use the HOV lanes, so I get to see what radio shows people listen to in their cars.

They're attempting to show that they're in compliance with EEO requirements by posting "females encouraged to apply." That way if they hire a man, and a woman who was passed over complains, they can point to the ad and say "we tried." This works against women and minorities as much as it works in th...

Re: Radio Resume Website Critique

I'd leave the logos, it's not about "pretty" it's about street cred. One thing I noticed, I believe you're using a Wix template for that site. To the best of my knowledge they don't accommodate MP3 downloads. I use them too for my VO page, and that I-Pod widget is nice, but it's not intuitive. It co...

40 Years In Broadcasting... or My Life as an Idiot!

For years people have encouraged me to write a book about some of the more... shall we say... "interesting" aspects of my former career, especially the stuff in Toronto. I can't get into the really "good stuff" if you know what I mean, too many people still around but there are a few stories you mig...

Radio vs Internet

This is an interesting series of articles written by Bryan Farrish regarding the relative roles of traditional radio and the Internet. While his comments focus on the role of radio in terms of exposure and sales of music, they imply an interesting insight to the relative importance of each in other ...

Re: Should I bother, or should I get into like.. food servic

Hey, food service works. You get a free hat, and get to work behind the mike.

Just keep practicing: "You want fries with that?... You want fries with that?...You want fries with that?... You want fries with that?...You want fries with that?... You want fries with that?..."

Something a bit different

Last weekend my band played a gig for the Wounded Warriors picnic at Quantico. My guitar player is a disabled vet, I'm an AF vet and the bass player is a former VA state trooper. We know what it means to subordinate years of your life to a larger cause After hearing some particularly obnoxious comme...
