How Do You Use Technology?

As a Journey listener, you're probably aware that we've been working hard for the past several years to stay ahead of rapid changes in the radio and technology landscape.

We're asking for your input. Our goal is to continue to provide great content, the way that you want it, on the platforms you use most often. So we're inviting you to share your opinions about technology in our annual survey.

You are among a select group of listeners invited to participate and tell us how you use the radio, along with social media, smartphones, tablets, streaming and the web to stay connected to entertainment, news, and updates from the Journey and other sources. Whether you use all these things or not, we really need your opinion.

Your responses will be kept completely confidential, and we will never share your personal information with anyone. We'll only use the information you provide to enhance our service.

I do have to let you know that this survey may take you as long as 15-20 minutes to complete, but you can stop, save your work, and resume at any time.  Because of the many changes in technology, it covers a lot of ground.  We hope you have the time to help us out and let us know your opinions.

When you're ready to take the survey, just click the link below to participate.  We hope you'll find it to be an interesting way to reflect on your own changing habits as a Journey fan and radio listener.

Tom Miner

You can get to know Tom better by listening to 88.3 The Journey on weekday evenings from 7 pm to midnight. We're so excited to have him on board as we journey together towards the kingdom. Tom is SO fun to listen to, his voice will serenade your evenings from now on. If you want to welcome him, its tom@883thejourney.org

(From Tom) For as long as I can remember, broadcasting has been my dream job. From the time I was in elementary to high school, I was the news anchor at the school's morning announcements every morning. I even used my mom's hairbrush as a microphone when I was a kid!

Summer is my absolute favorite season of all. I love traveling, white water rafting, kayaking, going to the beach, and spending time with my family. I also really enjoy skiing and enjoying time in my backyard with a barbecue and neighbors over. If I wasn't working at 88.3 The Journey, I would want to be a high school principal or school district superintendent.

The Father's Hand

We were on the subway, on our way back to the hotel on our last night of vacation. The train was crowded when a family of four joined us for the ride. Mom and daughter found a seat, but dad and his young son went to stand in the seam between cars. Every time the train went around a bend, the floor would bend and twist, tossing the young boy around, with a huge smile on his face. Instinctively, he reached out and grabbed onto his father, who steadied him. Then the ride smoothed and he would let go again to ride the rubber gasket between, only to lurch around the next corner.

It made me think about how I reach for the Father’s hand when the ride is rough, even when it’s where I want to be standing in the first place. I’ll have to admit there have been a few times in almost forty years in radio I have thought about being done, finding a smoother train to ride.

I returned from vacation to find financial reports that show us about $25,000 short of our fundraising goal this fiscal year, interestingly the amount we were short when the power went off during the last morning of our Spring Sharathon. There are less than thirty days left in our fiscal year to meet that goal. The train isn’t going to come off the tracks, but it did lurch. If you can help us meet that goal, you can make a secure online gift by clicking here.

Thanks for getting on the train and standing with us where all the excitement is. Now all we need to do is keep hanging on to the Father’s hand.

For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
