Ugly Radio KilledDecember 27, 2011
I’ve been mulling this over for quite a while. I feel it’s time to pull the plug on my weekly show.
Between a full-time job, freelance gigs and having involvement with no less than four KBOO radio shows, I just feel I can’t properly commit the time to do a show every week anymore. It was becoming a struggle to come up with something fresh and new every week and as I got busier and busier, the show not only suffered, but not having the time to promote it and the resulting drop in live listeners because of that made it seem even less fun.
As much as I hate to do it, I need to cease doing it right away.
I will probably continue to put out a podcast of some sort, under some name, but not as frequently.
I wish to thank Jeff Simmons for the opportunity to be a part of the Radio 23 family. It was a lot of fun. Thanks also to the many amazingly talented folks who DJ on Radio 23’s Channel A, Room 111 and Cascade Community Radio, whose inventive programming always entertain and enlighten.
Kill Ugly Radio started as a live mix-tape collage project in the late 90s and later became a monthly show on KBOO community radio before being a weekly program on WSU’s KOUG Radio and finally having a home at Radio23.
Thanks to all the folks who continued to listen to the regular show for the three or more years of it’s run and up to now. Your comments and emails always made it worthwhile.
As I said, I’ll continue putting out a podcast. My record hoarding hasn’t flagged a bit. I’ll have something for you, so stay subscribed. It’ll just come a bit less frequently, like once a month.
I’ll also keep tending to the archives. The older ones will be taken offline soon and all but the ones that still garner lots of traffic will remain.
Thanks again for all you regular listeners! This isn’t the end, necessarily but hopefully the start of something fun and creative!
