What a Week!

IMG_0239.jpg

We have a two-week window with engineers to build, move and reconfigure three studios.  As I write this, we are beginning the second week. Last week was a week of eighteen-hour days, with a 22-hour day thrown in for good measure, neck deep in cables, wires, equipment and studio furniture.  With a few more tweaks over the weekend, two of the three studios were ready to go Monday morning, ready for implementation of our new on-air system.  That started with the arrival of a factory engineer, as well as training for the staff on how the new system works and how we feed music, programming and voices.

The next few days should be interesting, to say the least. Your prayers, support and patience at my lack of opportunity to return phones calls and answer emails is appreciated, as I’m playing engineer gofer instead of general manager. The end is almost in sight. Tentative open house at this point is sometime the second weekend in June to show off the new digs.

2019 Technology Survey

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 writing now to ask for your opinion. 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 20-25 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.

Thanks in advance for your time and for your support of 88.3 the Journey®.
