My man, Chris Rude

MIXED EMOTIONS.

WE STARTED OUR NEW SHOW THIS WEEK, THE FRONT ROW. IT'S ON FROM 9-NOON WEEKDAYS.

I'M THRILLED FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. DICKEY BROADCASTING HAS BEEN AWESOME SINCE DAY ONE.

BUT, IT'S BITTERSWEET . EACH MORNING, I SIT AND WATCH CHRISTOPHER RUDE WORK HIS MAGIC ON THE RADIO, AND IT TRULY IS AN ART FORM.

HE HELPED ME FROM DAY ONE. RUDE IS A PERFECT RADIO PARTNER. HE MADE SURE TO SET ME UP TO SUCCEED EACH DAY I WAS ON HIS SHOW.

THAT IS RARE IN THIS BUSINESS.

GENERALLY, RADIO IS A FEAR BASED BUSINESS. FEAR OF LOSING YOUR JOB, FEAR OF NOT BEING GOOD ENOUGH, FEAR OF NOT BEING LIKED. BUT , YOU CAN'T MAKE GOOD DECISIONS WHEN THEY'RE BASED ON FEAR. THINK ABOUT IT, HAVE YOU EVER DONE SOMETHING GREAT, OUT OF FEAR OF FAILURE?

CHRISTOPHER RUDE IS A JOURNEYMAN BEHIND THE MIC, AND CAN POINT OUT DOZENS OF PEOPLE THAT HE'S WORKED WITH , THAT HAVE MOVED UP THE RADIO LADDER.

I WOULD HAVE NEVER GOTTEN THIS PROMOTION WITHOUT RUDE.

THAT'S THE TRUTH.

SO , HOPE YOU'RE READING THIS BLOG,RUDE, CAUSE YOU NEVER REALLY RECEIVE COMPLIMENTS THAT WELL. BUT , YOU'RE PRETTY SPECIAL

THANK YOU, MY FRIEND.

AND I CHOSE NOT TO BRING UP TWO THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE RUBBED YOU THE WRONG WAY ... 1} THAT I GET TO SLEEP TIL 6AM NOW, AND THAT 2} I DON'T HAVE TO WORK ACROSS FROM PERRY ANYMORE..

AND WE'RE BACK.... 3...2...1....
