Day two over — three to go at WGNB

Posted: February 13, 2008 in Job, life, my day

Wow. It’s been fun. I didn’t think I’d be able to pick things up so quickly. But, I’ve been able to learn the board and have been able to keep people informed and challenged all at the same time.

I’ve been filling in on the morning show at WGNB in West Michigan. I haven’t hosted a morning program in a long time. But, hosting a morning broadcast is what got me interested in Christian radio as a profession. I hosted my first morning program on 88.9 WGNR in Grand Rapids when I was in school.

Moody radio has an interesting mix of music and talk. In my opinion, it’s a little too talk heavy, so it limits the amount of ‘connecting time’ with the listening. Just about the time you  get a good music mix — you’re breaking it up with another short-feature.  I’m guessing they’re playing maybe 9 or 10 songs an hour.

However, I do enjoy the fact that Moody doesn’t play EVERY popular song out there. They’re more interested in ministering to people rather than playing the latest song the record companies want a radio station to play. There’s nothing wrong with playing new music, but there’s also nothing wrong with playing music that’s three our four years old, either.

Tomorrow I’m going to attempt to bring the listener in with telephone calls. I haven’t tried their phone equipment, so it could be a bit of a challenge the first couple of calls. We’ll see what happens.  If you’re interested, tune in at wgnb.fm from 6am to 8:30am.
