  1. Wish more station hung in there. My good friend still owns a music AM in Rensselaer In. He understands the value of serving the community. If anyone is to blame for the death of our careers it’s us. I have read more than my share of negative talk. We listened to our own complaining. This January I will begin my 40th year on the air. My career, the love of my wife and The Gift of God has allowed me to pursue my passion. I fell in love with the companionship of Chicago Personalities as a child spending nearly 2 years of my frail life in a Chicago Children’s Hospital. It was the radio and the personalities that honed my imagination. The companionship of the Dj between the songs kept me company. As an 8 & 9 year old frightened and alone in the hospital clinging for my life I asked God that if I would live I would like to do what radio did for me. Today after 3 Transplants numerous surgeries and flat lining more times than my wife can count. Gods gift and the kindness of all who worked and encouraged me in this industry I love so much I am still living my dream. Please be live and local. You have an opportunity each day to reach and touch the hearts and imaginations of the people you serve. Lets use technology for good and not evil. Everyday at WKOA I say a pray to my Lord that “The words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing”. I have truly have been blessed by an industry and the people who run it. Lets keep pressing on. Nothing can take the place of live in real time radio. We have opportunities to make a connection with our listeners. We maybe the only friend they have. Don’t you want to answer them on what ever platform they reach out to you on. Companionship is what sets us apart from other forms of entertainment. Think about why we listen to these Airchecks. Why do you feel a connection vs today voice tracked radio. I thank you for reading my thoughts. Thank you for a tool for the next generation of talent to be inspired by. Bob Vizza
