Virginia Midnight Walk And Talk Podcast

Above all it’s finally warming up in Virginia which makes it perfect for a midnight walk and talk podcast. Even more it’s been awhile since a free wheeling walk and talk. Listen to Virginia-Midnight-Walk-And-Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 984.

Chomping At The Bit

Firstly still stopped down in Virginia dealing with family matters. Secondly I am chomping at the bit to get going.

Travel Means Full Engagement

Certainly I’ve noticed that when I am on the road I am fully engaged. Up early.

Bored Sitting Still

Most importantly the longer I am stationary the more bored I get.

Up Late

Up late. Watching COPS on YouTube. Sleeping late.

Nomad Thing

Secondly it reminds me how fully committed I am to this ‘Nomad Thing’.

Short Trip Ahead

Meanwhile I plan a short trip to Florida in the coming weeks. Certainly just getting back on the road will make me feel better.

Back To The Pacific Soon

In the same vein I’m excited at the prospect of getting back to Quartzsite, Arizona to continue my wandering across California’s deserts and up the Pacific Coast.

Questions

But interesting questions have come up.

Why Does The Universe Throw Us Curve Balls?

Most importantly I’ve noticed when someone makes a decision to go ‘all in’ does the ‘universe’ throw curve balls every now and then just to test me?

Here’s a Nice House

For example I now have the opportunity to say here in a nice house if I want to. Essentially free.

Don’t Take The Easy Way Out

And people wonder, why wouldn’t you take a free house rather than driving around in that truck?

Choose Adventure

On the other hand I choose the adventure. Don’t want to take the easy way out.

What Does The Heart Want?

Finally I believe a firm choice in the direction my heart wants to go is the right choice.

Follow Your Passion

Moreover I think the ‘universe’ rewards those who follow their passion. Mine happens to be to move.

Buh Bye House

Therefore we’ll be selling the house.

Nomad Adventure in Three, Two…

In short it won’t be long before this great nomad adventure continues.

Happiness

For me happiness is a clean windshield and a full tank of fuel.

Rules For WalkandTalk Podcast

Firstly, rules for the walk and talk podcast are no preparation and no plan. Just walking and talking. Time to take a break from the surreal world we live in. Join me on the walk in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Throw The Plan Out

Secondly, I did have some things I thought I would talk about in this podcast. As soon as I got outside I threw all of that out.

Switch On Summer

Above all, we’re having a warm beginning of June here in the Upper Midwest. We don’t take that lightly.

Back In The Day

On the other hand it’s still hard for me to believe that 75 days ago we were living ‘normal’ lives.

What’s Next?

These days there’s a surreal quality to everything. Consequently we don’t have a sense of where things are headed. How any of this will play out is anyone’s guess.

No Predictions Here

Above all there is my firm commitment not to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or how we should proceed. Everyone is going to have to come to their own conclusions.

Living Through Difficult Times

Certainly I wonder how people felt during times of upheaval in history. Subsequently I am sure few of those people ‘knew’ where ‘things’ were going or how it would turn out.

Sure Hope Something Else Doesn’t Happen!

For example someone remarked to me in a networking session this week, “I sure hope something else doesn’t happen!”.

Likewise I am sure.

Midnight Walk In The Moonlight Cures Just About Anything

Finally my antidote for angst about the future and the crisis we’re all living through is a midnight walk in the moonlight. Even during a curfew it works wonders every time.

Walk…And Talk

In short, join me while I take a walk and talk about some new audio equipment, the surreal times we’re living through and more in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Radio’s Unique Museum

I worked in radio for years. Radio is still my first love despite podcasting for ten years now. Most noteworthy in this podcast is a visit to a unique museum. Learn more in Top40-Radio-Museum-Roadtrip-Bob Davis Podcast 881.

Top 40’s Roots

Top Forty radio’s roots are in the mid south and deep south. Now there’s a shrine to top forty radio in Chattanooga Tennessee. Even more, there’s also a working radio station there visitors can tour.

Small and Medium Markets

Especially relevant to the roots of top forty radio in the south, are the many small and medium markets in this region that spawned some of America’s great radio talent.

When Radio Was The Only Game In Town

First of all in the 1950’s, 1960’s, and most of the 1970’s there was no Internet, no social media, no cable television and no way for a generation to communicate except for radio. I’ll explain in In Top40-Radio-Museum-Roadtrip-Bob Davis Podcast 881.

Building Companies and Lives

Second, operators and employees of these radio stations in growing small and medium markets across the country could build companies and lives on the profits.

All About The Music

Above all the music made top forty radio and radio itself a phenomenon.

A One Off Moment In History

The events and situations that made all of that possible will certainly never happen again.

A slice of Architectural History Too

Furthermore during that period of time some of the most successful AM top forty stations were housed near their transmitters. Many in neighborhoods and developments.

Most Are Already Gone

Low slung period brick buildings and mid century architecture and furnishings were the order of the day. Most of those old stations are gone.

This Place Remains And It’s Worth Seeing

In contrast WFLI AM and FM remain exactly as it was through the 1960’s and 70’s, in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Fun Fun Fun

Finally my friend and I took a tour and spent an afternoon remembering how much fun radio used to be. Thanks again to the National Top Forty Radio Hall of Fame and Museum.

In Top40-Radio-Museum-Roadtrip-Bob Davis Podcast 881 you’ll hear the story of the radio station and more.
